Should I wait another year?
Will I end up with no friends?
Will I not be able to get into freshers?

Anyone else going to be 17 at uni or where 17 in first year? I'm not 18 until the start of second year.

I think its a personal choice really. You wont be able to join in with the events involving alcohol but doesn't mean you cant join any societies or sports teams or anything like that. People make friends through their course itself and your flatmates so dont worry about making friends too much

No I'm in school and planning on entering uni for 2016. I'm from Scotland and assuming you aren't in Scotland you stay in school until you are 16-18 then go to either uni, college ect.

Thanks yeah one of my biggest worries was not being able to do anything at freshers plus missing out on the whole going out experience whilst everyone else does. But then again I have the rest of my life to go out right?

One of my closest friends at university was 17 in the first year while I was 19. There are plenty of people who skip the night events for various reasons, you won't be the only one. He was really active in a few societies and made loads of friends, nobody ever said anything about his age. If you feel ready generally then don't let a fear of not making friends hold you back

I'll be 17 going to uni this year, I've taken a gap year this last year otherwise I would have been 16. Fortunately I'll be 18 this November so I'm only miss out for about a month, but I also worry about missing out on freshers. I think I'd take a gap year if I wasn't turning 18 till the second year though personally.
