Born After May 1st Rule?

I guess I am just a little bit confused with this rule:
Student - Anyone born after May 1, 2001 (i.e. who will be 18 or younger at VEX Worlds 2020). Eligibility may also be granted based on a disability that has delayed education by at least one year.
• Middle School Student - A Student born after May 1, 2004 (i.e. who will be 15 or younger at VEX Worlds 2020). Middle School Students may “play up” and compete as a High School Student.
• High School Student - Any eligible Student that is not a Middle School Student.

So if you are born on May 1st 2001 are you still eligible?
My brothers birthday is that exact day and I guess even though it doesn’t matter anymore I was still wondering. -Kfc Team 404 Team Not Found

In my work, documents saying “after” May 1st mean just that - after. As in, May 2nd is a no. Saying “on or after” would mean May 1st is a no.


Ok thank you that helps a lot.
