    I'm planning to study in japan for one year in a language school but I'm scared that I might forget all the maths and sciences I would've learnt by the end of hsc.

    Now when I think about it, a gap year (or 2) might be used for those who have military service in other countries - i.e. singapore, taiwan, south korea.

    Gap year(s) are great my time away essentially planned out my career I found what I loved doing, got work experience and now I'm doing it. At the end of the day when you have a degree in a competitive environment experience is what the employer is looking for not who got all HDs unless comparing people with no experience in the field. Gap years can prevent the harsh uninformed decision many people make straight from school doing some useless degree because it sounds smart but job prospects are few and far between. I've come back to studying more prepared and motivated than ever before the only negative is being stuck in classes full of 17/18 year olds... that is a big disadvantage IMO.
