I've been asked to go this year...I'm not quite sure about it. 4 days and 3 nights with 49 others? somehow that doesn't sound very appealing...but on the other hand I want to give it a try, could you tell me more? What kind of things did you do and did you enjoy it? Thanks!

I felt the same when I was asked, but what can u loose?

Most of the time isn't spent doing Chemistry stuff, but socializing and it gives a gud insight into uni life.

i know some girl who went there and she liked it, but shes a bit of a slut, so she probably did.

so u think i should go? i'm usually quite shy about meeting people and i do agree its a good idea. this way i'll be forced to talk to people who i don't know instead of shying away with my usual friend...but one other thing that concerns me is the fact that it starts before school term ends from the 6th-9th July (tues-fri) at Birmingham for me...i'm currently in yr 10, do u think i would be missing out on a lot of stuff? would it be hard to catch up on? I'm usually quite unwilling to miss school cos of the catching up and the whole panic panic! everyone knows someting i don't! *screams rips hair out* lol...so missing school, especially in a GCSE year seems pretty bad and i don't know if it's gonna be worth it... any advice?
