    Do you know what you'll do in your gap year? If not, it's a little risky.

    I'm sort of in the same position. My dad has thrown uni down my throat despite me not realy wanting to go. I'm worried that I wont be able to cope with the stress but I asked for advice with various people for a start connexions and they told me I should make my own decisions not my parents expectations, furthermore I asked my form tutor and he said if it's just nerves then you should just do it now otherwise you'll never go but if it isn't anxiety and you just want to live a life without exams and memorizing pointless dates and information for a year then it can be beneficial to take a gap year because it will make you more motivated. My sister took a gap year and it definitely made her more confident, mind you this was before the recession and so jobs will be tough to find.

    I fall into both categorys, I am terrified at the prospect of going to uni but I really want to express my independance to improve my confidence and so I chose not to.

    same here! I know if i take a year out, next year i'll be looking foward to it, it's just the thought of long essays and presentation for another 3 years straight away doesn't seem so appealing. But your point about recession is also true, hard decision!
