    Has anyone done NCS ? I have moderate social anxiety and I want to do NCS but I don’t want to do it if I’m going to get separated from my friends for long periods of time !! Will I Be separate from my friends or will I stick with them for the majority of the time ?

    What experiences has anyone had with it ?!! It looks good fun, I just don’t want to get stuck in a group with people I don’t know

    Thank you !!

    I did it this year infact.

    Honestly even if you applied with friends, you are put into different groups so most likely wont be with your friends unless you are lucky (some of the people in my group were already friends.) I applied with two people but they were in different groups.

    I think though it would be a good idea to get out of your comfort zone, which is something I had to do several times whilst doing ncs.
    Plus, its fun to meet new people and become friends with them, which is one of the good things about ncs. I even ended up becoming good friends with people that werent even in my group, but still got along with.

    Before going on, I really had confidence issues and with the amount of teamwork and stuff you have to do, you will probably end up having to improve communication skills, which is something I ended up doing as a result.

    I mean im not gonna lie, the last week was really boring, but besides that its a good experience.
