Delaying a year

If I don't get the grades I need for my offers, is it worth delaying a year and going travelling then applying again next year?
Answered by Alison Patterson
Hi Tom,

If you don't get the grades this month you can go into Clearing.

Alternatively, you can completely withdraw from UCAS this year. You can then re-apply for 2017 entry through UCAS in autumn this year and re-take your exams if necessary.

It's your choice.

Good luck!
