    Hopefully going in Sept 2010, so I'll be 20. Definitely think waiting rather than jumping straight into it was a good decision. I've got tons of mates who hate their courses which lead to their esteemed career paths are keep continuing, despite not being happy.

    I'll turn 22 a few weeks before I begin university! It feels strange to be starting so late, but I'm glad I didn't try to go earlier for the sake of it.

    I was 18, I couldn't wait to go to university. I went and visited my big sister at hers (she was the first person in my family to go to university) while I was doing my GCSEs and the next two years were spent desperately willing time to pass.

    I started my PhD last September, and turned 22 this January. If all goes to plan I'll be a doctor at age 24 and thus will have made myself hopelessly overqualified for most jobs. That's all fine though because I want to work in a university anyway.
