Is 19 too old for McGill?

Hi! This might be a dumb question, and I don't really know why it worries me haha...
Anyways, I graduate at 18 this December (I'm from Peru), and therefore would start at McGill next September. My birthday is in July, so I would be 19 when I start... is this to old? I think there are even 17 year olds that are will be going...

The reason for graduating at 18 is because I am doing the IB, which lets me "skip" in a sense the first year of undergrad, so in my classes I will be with people my age. In the dorms, however, and meeting all the "freshmen", will I be the oldest?

Thank you!

    Absolutely not, there are students much, much older.

    In fact, most students from Quebec are probably 19 as well because they do CÉGEP.
