    I did NCS when there was results day and they let you leave to go there and you have time to stay. So it's not like you actually miss out on anything.

    But don't they allow you to have a day off for results day? It says so on their website

    You're not band from phones lol
    They're basically just saying bring them at your own risk, my whole wave had their phones.
    And whether you get nice people in your wave is potluck, I had a really good wave and I'm still in contact with some of them now. But some of my mates had a really crap time cause their waves were full of people they didn't like.

    From what I've heard, everyone's pretty much in the same position (not knowing who anyone is) so people are very friendly and are willing to bond

    Just try it out? You never know what could happen, I know loads of people who wish they did it when they had the chance, you don't want to regret it, and if you complete the first week and find that you really hate everyone in your group, make up an excuse and say you broke your leg/in hospital or something to get out of doing the other activities on week 2/3 lol

    Then drop out somewhere in it, but you don't know who you're with till you try so it makes sense to give it a go. It was one of the best experiences of my life, I always recommend it.

    Would it look bad if I do the first 2 weeks and then drop out?

    Nope, I had a person drop out after week 1 in my wave haha.
    Week 2 means you gave it a proper go at least, cause week 1 starts off uncomfortable but by the end you all become really close or you should do anyway.
