Both answers are possible.This is a transcript of a CPE listening exercise, which can be found here.
The idea of this exercise is to choose from a list which benefit of having a gap year each speaker mentions. According the answer key it's "dealing with disappointments", but I chose "overcoming financial problems." I see where the examiners are coming from. The speaker mentions that she had to give up playing tennis which was a disappointment, but in the beginning she also mentions that she knew that she'd be short of money which is why she decided to work before going off to school.
Do you agree that both answers are possible?
Thank you in advance.
P.S. For speakers of AmE, in case you are unfamiliar with a "gap year", it is a year between leaving school and going to university, which some young people use as an opportunity to travel, earn money, or get experience of working. Definition courtesy of Longman.
