    I feel like I'm overthinking things here but I want to be sure I've got this right. I'm filling out an application form and got confused on what should be an easy question:

    Which one of the following applies to you?

    I am aged 18 or over I am of legal school leaving age
    I am not yet of legal school leaving age

    I'm 16 and have left high school. But I have to stay in education till I'm 18. So which of the bottom two am I? I haven't left education but I've left high school? I feel stupid but I don't want to get this wrong/

    Think of it like this; Are you 18? No? Select bottom option.
