    Hi I'm taking a gap year this year, and I'm quite old for my year as my birthday is early october. If I take a gap year I'll be twenty by the time I start uni, with people who would have just turned eighteen. Would I be out of place? Hardly anyone I know is taking a gap year.

    I promise you, no one will care at all. So many people worry about this and it is so far from a problem.

    Don't worry about it honestly, noone cares much about age at uni, it's not a huge deal and 20 is still young
