Age Limit to Taking the SCJA Exam

Hello everyone.
I will be attempting the SCJA Exam in the next few months. Currently I am under 18, and I was wondering if there was an age restriction specifically stating that minors may not be certified. I have not found any documentation stating thus, but I am worried that I may have missed something along the way, and I would hate to be turned down at the door after preparing for so long.

As a side note, I am fully prepared for the test itself, in case anyone is concerned that someone so young would be unable to pass it.

Thanks in advance to anyone who can clear this up for me!

I don't recall an age limit.

I wish you the best of luck!
