    is it better when you're 16 or 17
    16....I guess because you won't feel a bit insecure of being one of the elders. BUT it's equally awesome, doesn't matter what age. It's the experience

    It was only an hour and they basically told us what the 1st, 2nd and 3rd sections of NCS consist of. Plus the safety's, the do's and don'ts, they also answered some questions we wanted to ask. It was pretty chilled, I mean i already knew what they told me before I went having done my research months ago but it was worth it to get a better sense of the people you'll be going with.

    I would suggest you call them and tell them your details because you are unsure of your date. Honestly my friends who have the same date as me got their information pack two weeks before I did. I was confused at first but now I understand why that happened. Even though we all have the same dates, I will not be going to the same place as them so that explains why I got my information pack much later than them. I'm sure you will get it eventually, if you don't get it in the time period of two weeks since your friends received theirs call ncs and ask for your date first and then explain. hope that helped xD !

    It might be just because some of them have already received some details or information packs about the programme and such. If the website is anything to go by, we should get ours by the end of this month or the beginning of the month after.
