I am a scottish school student hoping to go to uni next year, straight after sitting my highers(if everything goes to plan). The catch is that when I start uni I will be only 16 about to turn 17, so my question is, will this put me at a disadvantage? I would say I look and act pretty mature for my age, and have friends who are a couple of years older than me; on top of that I also have a good fake id so I am planning to still go out and enjoy myself. so what do yous think? am i going to struggle?
thanks in advance for your replies! x

I'm Scottish too. My cousin started uni at 17; he said he didn't stuggle at all.
Then again he doesn't drink.

It’ll disadvantage you in the sense you wouldn’t (legally) be able to go out drinking... but as long as you look fairly old you’d get away with it. So socially you may have to put more effort in to make friends. As far as the course goes; you’ve clearly got to where you are for a reason so you’ll be fine
