Okay so I've kind of left my application late and need to write my statement within five days...is this even do-able? Along with this, due to the current circumstances I'm really unsure if I want to apply this year or have a gap year and apply next year. I just want to make sure i can really experience uni life and also make the most out of my time there- online learning isn't for me. If I take a gap year I will mostly likely continue my job full-time as I work at the hospital as a HCA. Really need some opinions and if anyone at Uni can tell me their experiences if they think things will be back to normal anytime soon...

Yes, uni life is different this year. I suspect it will remain online for semester 1 of next year (until Jan 2022). No harm in taking a year out and getting some work experience. Read some of the posts of students who started this year and not many are happy missing out on the usual uni life - socialising, going to classes for face to face lectures etc.

Thanks so much for your opinion. If it was guaranteed all lessons were online until next year this would probably initialise my choice on starting next year instead. The only thing worrying me Is how I would go about applying as it wouldn't be through UCAS cause I wouldn't be in the institution anymore. Thank you so much!

Oh god that seems so much stress to me. The thought of writing one is making me feel sick lol. Although I think I massively overthink about all work I do as I'm a perfectionist lol. Well done you for getting it done tho lol

i had my brother and sister give me ideas whilst I wrote everything. i dont recommend rushing it like .
you have 5 days , so i suggest you start, complete first draft is 3 days. and then spend 2 days perfecting it.
for me i had to spend the whole day until night. didnt sleep until 5 am lol

Well done you! I'm glad you got an offer. I managed to write one in time and I've just applied in case my mind changes. Thanks for your help!
