    I was wondering if there are many students on the forum who've taken a gap year and are starting in September? It'll make me feel slightly less old!

    If so, what are you studying and what hall are you in?

    Alex-hustu has taken a gap 2 years during which he passed his first year of physics and then miserably cocked up his second year, now he is taking comp sci. If you find anyone else who has 0 and 1% in two exams, then let us know as we know of no-one else to equal this feat!!

    I started my course when i was 21, ONE year outis nothin!

    Seriously though mate, it seems like at least half the people at my halls (spc) had taken a year out or more, so you wont be on your own at 19 or whatever you are. The oldest 'fresher' at spc was about 33 if i remember right

    Yea one of my mates michael from this year (who was elected to be hustu bar manager before NH took it over as a cafe) was 23, he had taken 5 years between school and his a-levels and had a bit of a shocker to say the least, studied phys and has just transferred to comp sci with alex, they have a similar path in life...

    I have technically taken a gap year because I'm restarting in Sep to do Art History So I'll be a first year again! My "gap year" was essentially the trial year where I thought I wanted to do Neuroscience just to realise no way do I ever want a science job!

    I'm in a house in Lenton but am trying to mix with first years and am a little anxious about not being able to hence why I'm on the forum lol! What course are you doing? PM me if you want

    I cant use html either, i tried to use a java version of my current sig but obviously the scripting involved was possibly "malicious" so you cant.
