Hello all,

I am currently on a gap year, hoping to do the following:
- resit my a levels
- apply for medicine
- work
- successfully take part in the ICS programme!

I am due to attend an ICS selection day this week in London. Is anyone else in my position?

To the others on a gap year, what are you getting up to? I’d love to make new friends!

Ace! Congrats on nailing a TA position - it’ll defo help your personal statement & keep you busy. Did a lot of your friends go off to uni this year? If so how are you finding it? Personally I’m feeling a little more lonely!

Weirdly most of my friends stayed in London for uni which I didn’t expect when I decided to take a gap year haha. Like three of my friends went to unis super far away from me and I’m visiting one of them next week but I do miss them.
I could definitely tell once everyone started uni that less and less people talked to each other which is a shame. I’m lucky that 3 of my friends also decided to take a gap year. How about you?

All of my friends have spread out for uni, im the only one taking a gap year out of us! A few of my friends are in Leicester and a couple are in London and the rest are dotted around the uk (my closest one being in Scotland!) but I’ve planned trips to leicester & london for within the next month - but it’s a lot to adjust to, not having them nearby ! My friendship group is kind of distancing too but it is nice seeing them all thrive in their new places
