    They should let you go, NCS is a great way of meeting people and building confidence.

    Surely your parents would be encouraging you to go? Anyway, mine would be forcing me to go but there we go. Ask them why and say it's a really good thing to do, looks good on CV and after all "It all starts at yes"!

    Say it's helpful for uni. Especially the personal statement. All of my friends used it as their basis.

    It also gives you the experience of living away from home and being independent! Useful for uni too

    You develop new skills, confidence and friends, and make a difference in the community within the 3rd week.

    Why do they not want you to go? God, my parents couldn't get me out the house fast enough!

    Also, the government heavily subsidises it. You only pay £35-50 of a place worth £1600! Surely that's worth it!
