Yep I’m taking a gap year because I don’t like any of the unis I’ve chosen and the ones I want to apply to are too competitive to have places open for clearing.
Reapplying next year having received my grades and then I can pick out unis.

For the gap year I’ve got really no idea what I want to do. I do have a bucket list of which I want to tick some stuff off: go to a concert, learn to drive, go clubbing e.c. But mainly I want to travel. I’m considering joining an agency for a couple months travel around the world. Also gain some relevant work experience, join some clubs/society’s and raise money for mental awareness then go skydiving.

Basically work for a month, go on holiday and repeat but gain vital knowledge and experience that will set me apart.

Hi, thanks for the reply!

That sounds amazing, I was thinking of doing something similar tbh. I was thinking about doing a deferred entry, purely because I have always wanted to travel and gain some practical experience and it seems like a good idea to take the chance while I can. I wanted to try and get some experience as well like you mentioned. btw the concert idea and skydiving sounds really cool!

What course are you thinking of applying to, if you don't mind me asking?

Thanks again for the reply, glad to know other people are planning similar stuff, as no one else in my school wants to do a gap year.

Yeh exactly travel & practical experience would be so good. Especially since now it’s still sort of affordable but after uni I really doubt it… not to mention after uni you begin the 9-5 working life.

I’m thinking of applying for marketing. What about you.

And same here honestly nobody I know is doing a gap year and I’m worried I’ll be all alone. Maybe we could get to know eachother and perhaps plan some stuff?
