So I had to resit alevels (basically did Y14) and now I want to change course. I spoke with my uni and they said if I join now there will be absolutely no room to change programme once I start, so I’d be doing a degree I’m not keen on. I’ve been told that I can be given a place on my course next year. I don’t know if Y14 counts as a gap year but would another be bad?

My opinion is that it is better to take another year out and use it usefully (useful to yourself and future university) than do something you have rushed into and don't want to do.

Take it, it’s not bad. U will just be older than a few others in ur year, what’s so bad about that?

Use it to work, or work experience, build up your cv or just go out with friends and travel. Live life homie 😎

It's fine. The first time I started uni, I started 2 years "late". It wasn't a problem at all.

i started uni when i was 24 and i feel better for it.. i technically took 5 gap years hhahah.. it is a much better idea to take your time to figure out what you want to do than rush into things or go with the flow to fit into norms and please everyone around you. at the end of the day it is your life and no one else's. you can only do uni once unless you are super rich so please do not worry about taking an extra year. Enjoy your free time this year.. either try and save some money so you dont have to live a poor student lifestyle or go travelling or something.
