    I have always been quite friendly with most people at school. Was a bit worried when I went to uni that I would not have the same relationship with my new friends at uni. However, I have been at uni over six months now and I am already closer to some of these people than my friends at home. I would tell some of them anything and they would do the same with me. I can honestly say they will be friends for life.
    That's quite reassuring! Most of my close friends are actually going to edinburgh too - minus a couple.

    I'm both excited and rather apprehensive, with my main worry being that my idea of a good time will be too different from everyone else's :dontknow:.


    Well, there's only one way to find out!

    Looking forward to it for the most part, but I'm mostly worried about making new friends... I do think a lot of people just want to leave school now, I'm kinda the same but it'll be weird leaving after seven years.

    It isn't so much about what interests me, but about what doesn't. I've no interest in clubbing or alcohol, which I feel puts me in a bit of an awkward position.

    Nightmare Scenario 1:
    Me: Hey guys, let's go do something!
    Friendly Group 1: Yeah, we're going down to the bar! Tag along!
    Me: No thanks, not really my thing.
    Friendly Group 2: Hey Vian, we're going clubbing! You in?
    Me: ...

    I think during freshers you generally just tag along to experience it, but I'm assured that not everyone at uni is obsessed with clubbing. I hope..

    Excited!

    All of my choices made an offer for the Japanese BA, a course I've wanted to do for years. I have enough Distinctions to get into my insurance choice (University of Manchester), so just need to keep working hard to get into what will be my top choice (SOAS in London, or University of Sheffield).

    I'll miss life at home, but it feels good to be making progress in what I want. However, I won't miss my ****ty job at Starbucks.

    Like some of you, I'm also worried about the social life side of it though. I do get hammered, but it's more like every 2/3 months. I want a social life, just not one that relies so heavily on clubbing. I've seen some threads on here where people have asked about the good points of certain unis, and beyond 'clubs' and 'shopping centre', they don't list much. This is partly why I'm leaning towards London, because it's not a traditional uni, and it's London! So there'll be plenty to do that doesn't involve clubbing.

    Not really worried or apprehensive. I go to boarding school so moved out at 14 technically, I'm more worried that I won't get the grades

    I'm neither excited nor unhappy. I am on my gap year and spent almost all the time searching for a course I would like. Since I found one, I learnt a lot of stuff about it and compensated my lack of knowledge in that field. I was unfortunate to not pick up that subject in school because I had no more space in my agenda... I don't like uni because of deadlines but wait for it because I got in where I wanted and will be taught by world experts in their field... I guess it's just new environment which is going to cause troubles. I'm from small town and the uni is in big city so..

    I'm sure it'll be fine overall, if we've joined various societies and stuff (though they all seem to have weekly socials too ). It's mainly a little nagging worry at the back of head making me apprehensive!

    Though it doesn't help that my firmed Uni is famed for its nightlife...

    Absolutely dreading it, if I'm honest. I stupidly picked a hard subject, I'm not going to make any friends, and my anxiety is going to rip my insides apart

    I'd do anything in the world just to stay at sixth form for a few more years.

    I'm kind of looking forward to it, the whole moving out and getting more independance thing, as well as studying science with more enthusiastic people than at sixth form. I'm a little apprehensive about the whole social side of it though, I'm useless at socialising, and it takes me ages to make new friends. And I hate clubbing/ getting drunk/ partying/ all the other things which most people my age seem to consider 'having a great time'. And I'm not sure how much more work there will be compared to A levels, or how much free time I will get...
    And finances are going to be a nightmare, my student loan doesn't even cover accommodation costs and students aren't allowed jobs during term time :'(
