Gap Year Options
You might decide to take a year out of education before you go to university. Can you just laze in bed all year? Not if you want do something successfully later! You would be advised to do something productive and, possibly, something that relates to the course/job you want to do in the future; they will ask you about it at any interview.
Locally and nationally there are volunteer organisations you could work for. Alternatively, you could use the time to travel, perhaps to the U.S.A. or Australia, combining this with working on a children's holiday camp.
Obviously there is a great deal of thinking and research to do in order to make your next move. If you think we can help you in this process, please do ask.
