    I'm 15 and I'm considering doing NCS next summer. I live in the East Midlands and I was wondering if anyone had experiences doing NCS here. Also, would you say it was a good or a bad experience, as reviews are very, very mixed! Thank you!

    Hi, there. I'm going on NCS from 22nd July and IIRC you're old enough to do it now but I think places are going quickly now; I was really lucky to secure a place last minute. :P From what I've heard from people, overall it's a good experience but it's best to try it out for yourself. :P

    Did it last summer and it was great. You're in another part of the country though, so your mileage may vary. I guess the only thing that could ruin it is if your wave is just full of shi**y people

    I did NCS, probably one of the funnest experiences of my life lmao. You get to mix with awesome people, when i went i didn't know anyone. But i tend to make friends really easy. If your scared that they wont like you, don't... everyone is in the same boat and i met some of the nicest people i have ever met there. You will love it imho. Unless your some crazy sociopath who is extremely shy and hates meeting new people, you will love it
