Well, it's not really that bad of an experience compared to others :biggrin: but anyways... I thought I had completely bottled my a levels and was stressed throughout the whole summer. I was already considering where to retake year 13 and stuff, and was worried that my life is turning upside down :s-smilie: :biggrin:, my parents wanted to kill me (not literally of course But they were really mad when I told them).

Results day came, I logged onto UCAS Track (uni application service) at 8 am and I see that I was rejected from my firm (Which was a good uni), and insurance which was ranked around the 50-60th in the UK (pretty average). At that point I didn't know what to do - even though I "thought" it would happen. I got rejected from my unis and thought that I got terrible grades apart from one ok one for a levels.
I went to school to get my results anyway, and was dreading how bad Clearing will be (since an average uni even rejected me.) I got my results and... I was actually surprised, my grades were way better than I thought they would be (But not good enough to get into my firm or insurance uni) so I still had to go through Clearing - was really scared.

The advisor at my school was crap and told me I should call average/lower ranked unis (as my course is really competitive). I got an offer from one and I was happy at the time that I actually got an offer after thinking that I failed completely.

Later I went home, called a few more universities, a top7 uni in the UK said they would've considered me if I had 1 grade higher :s-smilie: but..

I eventually got a place at a top10 russel group university through clearing despite being rejected by a 50th (and my firm) uni and thinking that I have failed and ruined my life. :smile: I got really lucky and it went way better than I thought. :smile:

Not the best story/experience 😂😂😂 but here you go.

OMG how do I do that?
best experience - ever single time i'm on stage. i love performing and i can't quite explain the thrill i get when everyone is watching me waiting for my next moves. especially when i'm making people laugh or i have a solo.

worst experience - plenty. only one i feel comfortable sharing was when i got locked in a closet by my bullies when i was a lot younger. looking back it was minor but at the time it was so frightening. i was in there for more than an hour which made it so much worse. oh and i didn't speak english properly either so i kept it to myself.
best - my first acid trip
worst - my second acid trip
Worst Experience: breakup during the summer of 2014 with my GF of the time

Best Experience: My one and only Ketamine trip when I was 18/19? Haven't experienced anything like it before or since, completely indescribable!
Worst experience: running away to London, and at night I had to sleep rough under a bush the worst about it wasn't the danger, it was that I was in the lowest part of my life, I was going to attempt suicide, but I was extremely tired and broken down to my deepest feelings

Best experience: Depression to the point I cooperated with it, that it comforted me.

Erm, best experience was graduating with a first in 2016. Worst was finding out one of my best friends killed themselves back in 2015.
Best - Falling in love and for them to be in love with me too
Worst - Mental health conditions and the problems, struggles and misconceptions that come with them

Just curious what the best and worst experiences are to be honest.

Best experience: either spending time with my friends a year and a half ago and just feeling so accepted and cared about, or getting my first boyfriend when I thought I’d always be alone.

Worst experience: sixth form. I made the huge mistake of staying on at my secondary school, where I didn’t have anyone. I had a terrible flare-up of anxiety which lasted around 8 months where I felt like I was going to die and that I had a brain tumour. I stopped drinking out of plastic bottles because I was paranoid about getting cancer, and switched to this really weird deodorant that smelled bad and didn’t work, because it didn’t have antiperspirant in it (thought to cause cancer). I had no friends and was constantly getting told off by the teachers because my work was bad, as I had no motivation. Was getting picked on. Took loads of days off and generally couldn’t cope. Was constantly crying.
