    I'm 22 so not exactly 'mature' but that is now what I'm defined as. I did attend university straight after my A-levels but it didn't work out and I left after my first year. I have decided it's time I went back and bettered myself. I have always been good with numbers and enjoy challenging myself. My grades at A level weren't amazing though I got an A a C and a D plus a C at AS level. All the places I looked at want ABB and BBC etc. Am I considered differently because technically I am a mature student?

    I doubt it as I personally know someone who went back to uni at 24 no questions asked.
