Pursue uni or take a gap year?

Postby puzzledearthworm » Thu May 29, 2014 8:06 am

I am currently in my early twenties. I want to know should i pursue uni or work? I want to study business in local university. I am from polytechnic. i was offered courses that i do not want to study. My grades can get me the interview. However, i didn't succeed in enrolling in the course. May i know should i take a year or 2 so as to get into business?

MBA requires an interview too. So i don't think it will be easier.

If you think that you are likely to get into a business course when you apply again, or what you do in the gap year will help in your application, then it's probably worth a try. If not, you might just want to re-think your options. A gap year can be good experience anyway, whatever course you eventually decide on.

Maybe you should ask someone who knows you personally and who has some knowledge of what universities look for. Maybe one of your poly teachers? Ask them for a frank assessment of your chances if you try again and take it from there.
