This was proven on our basic course when the majority of people who failed and never got recourses were younger students whereas the guys aged 25+ are doing relatively well so don't let HR and the ATCO interviewing you at stage 3 try and manipulate you by saying that because you have been out of school for 10 or 15 years, you will struggle to study because that is a load of !!!
Hey don't scare off all the younger guys. On our course it was the younger ones who managed to get through Basic.

Age has nothing to do with it.

Maturity, motivation, and a myriad other factors do.

Is that because the food it hot?

Make sure you don't just bring any old tray though, but one dried in the Rainforest.
