    Why did you not do the transition year? (I think that's what it's called).

    Congratulations! I'm thinking of doing my masters as well. I knew I wouldn't be the only one but it's nice to know that you graduated with masters at 21. I'm tempted now

    Yeah it's transition year. People who did it the year before me complained that they didn't enjoy it and it was hard to get back into doing work so I thought I'd skip it. Kind of wish I'd done it though just so I could really enjoy the uni experience

    go for it!!!, you have nothing to lose. In my case ,I was fortunate as due to admin I was put up a year by accident but kept with it. I turned 18 around freshers week in first year so evwen though I started freshers as a 17, I spent most of the year as a 18 year old. when I graduated, I was like 3 months from turning 22.

    Did you find it difficult going to uni and being younger than everyone else? I know the feeling myself: I've skipped first year so I'm the youngest in my year.
