I'm 18 going to uni next week. My provisional license hasn't arrived yet as they're taking longer than usual because of corona. I have my passport but it was taken when I was 13 and it looks nothing like me. I've just had a idea in case they try to kick me out at night but please tell me if it is stupid. If they don't accept my passport as id, I have a railcard which has a picture of me (taken just a few weeks ago), my name and my date of birth. If I show them both my passport and railcard and they see that the name and date of birth matches, they should accept it right? My first name is very rare as well so I wouldn't be able to get it on fake id anyway.
EDIT: I just realised this is in the wrong forum and I can't seem to move it. Mods pls feel free to move it x

Does your university provide you with a student card?

Could work but generally as a blanket rule most pubs will only accept passport or driving licence, so even if they know the railcard is real they might not accept it. Id use the passport, on my driving license the photo is probably 8 years old and I'm in my early twenties, only been questioned a few times but never been rejected because of it
