I'm going straight from school, I guess a gap year would have been good to build up money but I don't want to wait a year! I'll get a transfer from the Tesco where I work to wherever I go, hey presto - guaranteed job!

Completely agree with you, Peapod and mjf - I too am on a gap year, which was very nice to begin with but now its appeal is starting to wear rather thin and I just wanna go to uni!

I want to go now too, it's just a little bit scary.

I mean, it's about the biggest lifestyle change most of us will have gone through. How can you not be apprehensive?

Not really. I've gotten over the excitement phase with exams looming close and saying goodbye to all my friends and everyone i know in sixthform. Also the head girl has gone to America and i'm standing in, just can't seem to keep composed and collected, far better being deputy head girl to be honest. But university, after lots of tears and the stressful planning of the best year book ever -i 'll be excited again

Yes I agree. Though I am looking forward to it I do wonder about it. Like will I like the place, the subject, the people, the accomodation etc. From what I saw on the visiting day I think I will....but it's the next 3/4 years of your life so it'll be nice to get there and reassure yourself that you really do want to be there.

Just wait until a day or two before you go, and think back to how you are feeling now. I was praying to leave around this time, but once it came to actually packing I suddenly felt about ten years old again, and so not ready to leave. But now the thought of going back home for Easter is a scary prospect!

you get over it as you grow up.
When I first went to uni I was absolutely up for going then the night before I nearly dropped out. My first term I was totally homesick - dating one of my flatmates and then breaking up (not recommended) didnt help and I didnt want to go back after xmas. I was miserable for the whole year and it was only my second year after a *****y summer at home that I really started to appreciate uni and enjoy it.

Going back to live at home after being free is definitely a bigger lifestyle change again not at all recommended. Once you move out of home get a decent job and stay out.

I must say the good thing about a gap year is the lack of summer exams - if I hadn't taken it I'd have had four years in a row of summer exams! you start to associate sunshine with stress!

Sound advice. I was ok up until the morning i left when it hit me. Waking up and seeing the room you've lived in for the last 18 years totally empty and all your personal posessions stuffed in a few boxes is really sad. Also small things your parents do for you like ironing one of your tops of buying you some small items for uni suddenly have major significance when you realise you are not going to see them again for the next 10 weeks.

I would say the one of the hardest parts of the uni experiance was just the few hours walking around my house with nothing to do before you set of. Once you get to uni there will be plenty to do, but in the few hours before I left I felt pretty sad.

My parents probably wouldn't like it, but after less than 2 terms i now think of my room at uni as home and often feel awkward when I come back. I expect I'll survive the holidays, but it does feel very strange to forget about what has been your entire life for 10 weeks, and then suddenly come back to it.

Anyway I've rambled on enough - uni is fun, but the time spent in 6th form should be as well. Make sure you have a really great time with your friends, as in 6 months you probably won't see most of them again.
