I could, but I still don't know what to. A year off just to think about things and to reassess will probably be for the best (even if I do have to get my application off by October).

did you discuss writing to the admissions tutors and seeing if they'd keep the offer open for another year? if you truly hate cambridge as a university then fair enough, but dismissing an offer because of the course is something i'd think VERY carefully about, but then I suppose you've considered everything quite deeply if you're speculating about taking a year out.

I'm going to accept the offer anyway, just in case I change my mind again, then pull out of UCAS at the last moment if I don't. That will give me about the same amount more time to think about whether I really don't want the place there.

what would you do as an alternative (taking into account a year out)?

That's what most philosophy graduates end up doing anyway

I take it they don't offer a combined philosophy and maths course at cambridge or you would've contacted them already re: possibility of a transfer.

I could do a couple of years of maths finished with a year of philosophy, but:
1) I'd have to do mechanics.
2) I'm not good enough for Cam maths.
3) I genuinely want to combine the two subjects.

My original plan was to do two years compsci, then see if I could finish that off with a year of philo, but then I realised that I'm just not sure if I could make it through those two years. Plus, as I said, I want to combine the subjects rather than study them as separate entities, and, if I'm already thinking a couple of years into the future to do philosophy, I should probably be doing it from the the offset anyway.

today was my second day in school (final year) and already I've had to answer no less than four times: No, I still don't know where I intend to go to... No, I don't know if I'll stay in Brazil or not... No, no idea what I want to do either....
