    Taking a gap year

    l was thinking of taking a gap year next year to travel to see my relatives which l haven't seen for over 13 years. l made a post just to get some feedback from people who have taken gap years and some advice.

    personally, i dont think it's worth it. but having said that, i dont have a relative which l haven't seen for over 13 years, so it's your choice.

    Why would you take a year off to see your relatives ? Can't you go during the holidays after HSC ?

    Well, you'll probably forget most of your HSC knowledge in a year, even though they're not that important at uni.

    It's up to you

    Re: Taking a gap year

    Taking a whole gap year is only worth it if you do something imo.
    A year is a long time, and if you're not doing like actually something, be it a job or study or something, I would imagine it to get pretty shit.

    And if your relatives are anything like mine, a month is plenty of time to catch up.

    Re: Taking a gap year

    l probably wont go as l have asked alot of people and the general answer was no due to u were forget half the information from the hsc so when you go into the course its like going kindergarten agen, also seeing my relatives for 1month is enough and l dont plan on working in my free time if l hav a gap year lol
    lol u mad son?
