your opinion is of course, perfectly valid.

In my opinion these types of threads should be banned. They are just ridiculous and add absolutely nothing. If you search this forum you will see hundreds of threads all devoted to the same stupid topic. In this country age discrimination is illegal and nobody will judge you for being "too old" in higher education. Even if you were 90 and wanted to do the course you would still not be "too old" I know a guy of 75 who did a history of art degree and he loved every minute of it.
Please stop asking stupid questions. Age is just a number and to even think it may be a barrier is very sad.
as is the OP's
despite a back catalogue of x number of these type of threads, ppls anxieties tend to remain, and they like to ask Qs that may well appear tedious to u but to them, matters.
furthermore, we may well have legislation to counter ageism (or indeed many ism's) but u and i both know that to legislate against summat doesn't deter those with prejudice.
lastly, there's all sorts of ages at uni, that's v true, however, whether one fits in academically is not really the concern here and whilst i wish more thought like 'u' - some of us are worried that they won't.
