    What's everyone looking forward to the most, if anything, about university?

    Personally, I really am looking forward to studying my course (goes without saying really ) but also the fact that I'll be far away from home, away from my parents. I'll be independant, I'll be doing what I want, and that excites me so much. It scares me a bit too, but I know that's a good thing that I'm scared :lol:

    Hi mate,
    I was considering taking I gap year ( I've left it late now I know as!) but I am currently supposed to be doing to DMU uni which is nice but I can't help but feel I could improve my a levels which were CCC so was wandering how realistic it would be to get this to BBC so I could go to Leicester or Liverpool uni. Also I would have to retake my GCSE maths in this one year as I have a C but need a B. Any help appreciated, I just want to know if it's worth it and how realistic it is as most people are telling me it's not worth it and just to go in two weeks
    Many thanks
