Based on my observations, and personal experiences, I believe older students do better in college. For the sake of argument, I'll define older as 24 and older. From my own experience, I didn't take college as seriously as I probably should have when I first began. I will also say that people fresh from high school I don't believe have the maturity level to make decision that will affect them for their entire life.
Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!
Science tells us that our brains do not fully develop until we reach the age of, at least , 25. Therefore, teenagers tend to have a limited understanding of what a "serious" relationship truly is. Sex and friendship do not equal a serious relationship. But those are the factors that many teenage relationships are based upon. Anyone who has ever been in a long term, committed relationship like a marriage understands that sexual excitement wanes and other feelings and emotions develop toward your partner over time. Feelings such as selflessness toward your partner, and being able to compromise and love during even the most difficult times you encounter in your life are hallmarks of a "serious" relationship. Teenagers change over time as their brains develop and mature and therefore, they cannot truly know who they want as a long term partner. The person who seems like a great fit for a 17 year old may appear to be a "bad choice" to the 18 or 19 year old.Teenagers under eighteen are not mature enough they just think about looks and the who is the coolest girl. Many teenager care about other people and what they think, so they look for the hottest guy or women and if it inset for what other think and they actually fall in love it usually because of their looks. Study shows that 42% of teens fall in love because of their partners looks not on who they really are.
