    Nope, I'll be 19. You'll probably find the average age of starting uni is older than 18, as few people start a year "early" than a year (or more) "late".

    Yeah but my point was that people who start university early are far less common than people who start late. I'd guess that far more people take a gap year than start a year early, and then you've got all the mature students.

    Remember, when you go to university in 2006 or later, you will need to pay the top up fees. However, you will pay them back when you get 15,000 quid or above. Furthermore, you can apply for loans, grants, etc...

    I'll be nearly 19. Being under 18 would seriously suck, you might not be able to go out and drink with everyone if the places are strict about ID. xx
