    18 is the most common age straight after school, but you can go anytime(and people do) until you drop dead.
    I started last year and I'm 68.

    20 now, but I'll probably go when I'm 21/22 or even 23. Uni isn't a priority for me. Money and experience is important for me atm.

    This thread gives me hope and reassurance that it's not actually that embarrassing if you're 19+ going to uni

    I left school at 16 with few standard grades (GCSE's) after illness. I completed an HNC 3 years ago and just completed highers (a-levels) this year.

    I'll be 4 days away from my 29th birthday when I walk onto Uni campus in September.

    You're never too old!

    I'm from Ireland. I chose to do GCSEs and A Levels at this private school because Irish Educational system is pretty bad. The college I went to sorta specialised in British education and allowed us to sit exams whenever we felt ready (January, June and now October!).
    I did my GCSEs for 2 years as opposed to the 4 years which seems to be the norm in the UK and my A levels for 2 years too which is why I'm 2 years younger than the average applicant lol.
    However, I'm most likely gonna take a gap year because my age did prevent me from applying to some universities I wanted to go with a 18 year old lower age limit.

    It's definitely not, I started at 22 and I'm now 24 and one year left.
