    So I'm waiting for my A2 results, and I've previously turned down all my offers or wasn't given an offer. I now want to apply next year,effectively having a gap year. I intend to apply for medicine (so get my application sent before October 15th). But do I have to apply to UCAS through some wotsit for those who have had a gap year or it it effectively just exactly the same as last year.

    Also, what happens with the thing that the year tutor wrote on my UCAS application last year (I forget what it's called - a reference?) - who does it this time? Can it still be a teacher? Do I even need a reference?

    Why thank you kind inhabitants of TSR.

    Same as last year.

    Same as last year, but i think there's something to tick and say that you applied before. As for your school reference just get in touch with them and let them know that you will be reapplying. Your application will still go to them for the reference, they just need a bit of time to prepare it.
