    It's interesting seeing how most people seem to go at 18, but there are a lot that go younger or older than that. I'm still at sixth form, gonna do a gap year next year and entering uni at age 19, nearly 20. How about you? What age did you enter uni? Or if you're not there, what age will you be when you enter?

    I'll be 19. Hopefully the gap year will prove its worth (I'm sure it will).

    I was 20. The gap year was well worth it since I made enough at poker to fund myself through Uni.
