    I am currently doing my A level now and am 20 years old. By the time I finish my A level and apply to university I'll be 22. So will I be considered as a mature student in universities in Australia and Canada? Also, there was a 3 year gap between my O level (finished in year 2013) and A level (started in 2017).
    I'm very new to the 'mature age student' thingy so please give me some insight about it.

    Thanks in advance.

    Yes. the mature age has gotten lower and lower. I think its anyone 21+, but it could also be anyone not directly from school. It used to be much older. I wouldnt worry about it because its more or less irrelevant.

    Yep, as stated above, 21+ constitutes a mature applicant 😊
