    I can't wait to leave this flop of a city. Just wish it was September already! The only thing that I'll miss is that I can't see the boyf all the time but apart from that, I'm way excited.

    It's worse in Scotland: I don't even need to try anymore. My offer was based on higher results - last year! A good number of people get unconditionals in scotland. It makes the place seem even more painful!
    So is the system in Scotland meant to be that you apply to uni's with your grades (Highers) already in hand so technically you're almost on a gap year and save a year studying? If so that sounds way better than the English system why do people do advanced Highers if uni's only ask for Highers then? I'm curious as hell

    btw I'm hoping to do Medicine this September this year, at Glasgow

    Overwhelmed. I guess both excited and scared at the same time.

    I'm excited because my degree seems perfect for me. I'll be studying something that I want to study. But I am a bit nervous about making new friends. I'm pretty talkative but it's still slightly strange having to be with all these new faces. My introduction will be something like "Hi, I'm Asma. Everyone calls me Ron Weasley because I am clumsy."

    Weird really.
    I'm excited to go, and really looking forward to moving out, but at the same time it's a bit sad. I had the 'first of my lasts' last term, as I had my last ever music lesson with a girl who I've been having them with since year 2. It's like 11 years all of a sudden came to an end, and it just felt strange.
    I used to feel quite worried about making friends as I'm quite a shy person, but having interviews and staying there for 3 days really reassured me, as it's strange how easily you can get to meet people.

    This! I've been getting distinctions and merits across the board thinking my first choice Uni would give me a tough conditional offer. Turns out my interview and personal statement went really well and they just want me to finish my course . . . basically an unconditional offer really. Now I just want to finish my course and leave!

    I'm on a gap year, as I didn't feel ready to apply last year. Now that I know what I finally want to study I just can't wait to start! Excited about my course, university and joining societies. Never felt more ready for anything before - bring it on!!

    I know! You want it to come quickly, but also want it to stay away because of exams...

    Can't wait! Especially when everything would be so different from what it is for me now. But i think i'll miss my family (they're an 13-hours flight away from uk) , food and the weather. But other than that, i can't wait.

    I'm looking forward to it. However for numerous reasons I'm anxious. Although I grew up in Britain and am British, I feel that having lived abroad for the past 6 years has reduced my Englishness. I often feel like a foreigner when I'm in Britain. My English family is a bit weird and not very tight so I don't really feel a family connection. I'm a bit worried about being too culturally different and not enjoying my time there.

    I've been living on a tiny island all my life, so the concept of getting off for a few years is pretty damn exciting. I kind of regret taking a gap year, although its given me a pretty good insight into work, and given me the chance to save some cash to blow on a big summer holiday and freshers! The idea of not knowing anybody, and having a completely fresh start to make impressions on people is the part im most excited about, living where i do everyone knows everyone and has preconceptions of them, and i absolutely hate it!
