    Basically I was one of those guys in college who messed about in class, left my BTEC with an embarrassing MPP where as most people had enough to go university. I left in 2014, got a job and just got on with life but it's kind of hit me now how stupid I was.

    I've decided that I'd like to go uni and do physiotherapy, I know no where at all would take me with those grades so I'd have to look at an access course and I was looking at staying home while at Uni but every single person has told me I'd miss the real experience, so now am looking at moving away but here's my real question.

    Would I look weird as a 22 year old showing up for his first year of uni, going out to freshers, doing stupid things, partying ect or do I have the wrong idea about the age group? I'd imagine everyone there would be 18-19? surely? or am I deluded here?!

    I just don't want to be the oldest one, since am the class clown, most of my friends have all gone uni, finished it and now won't shut up about it, it feels like am missing out big time.

    What do you's reckon? am I over thinking this or have I grown to old to move away?

    Cheers!

    Not at all. I know some 50 year olds studying to be doctors.

    I would say it's probably going to be fine I mean yeah you might be a little older than the majority but that doesn't matter you're all mature and you'll be able to get on with everyone just fine and I think it would be a great experience for you, don't worry if there's an age gap, especially if doing this means having a better lifestyle :yes:

    Well, I just finished my degree this year at the age of 23. But, the oldest girl in my class was 23 when she joined first year, and now she was 26. So, I doubt it matters. :dontknow:

    People won't know your age unless you tell them.
