So, I'm currently in year 12. I am thinking of heading off to uni to study film and literature, but I'd love to do a year abroad during Uni. The issue is- studying a year abroad costs MONEY. A heck of a lot of money.. So, I'm thinking of taking a gap year after uni, just to make money for my uni escapades, maybe get some life experience before heading off to uni. Do you think this is a good idea? It means I'll be 20 when I start university (Retook year 12 due to health problems)

Do you mean a gap year before uni? It can be useful to help you gain experience, earn money and take time to consider what you want to do with your life. Studying a year abroad, you might be able to use your student loan to help with costs, but finding employment in your gap year can help with money as well as having something to put on your CV. In terms of your age, starting uni at 20 won't be a huge issue. It is common for students to take gap years or return after a years for a career change - plenty of students start uni at different ages, and 20 isn't a huge gap from students who have just finished their A-Levels.
