I was age 5 when I first knew my age. Birthdays before that time was in my eyes just another big feast with loads of dessert and lolly pops.

(8 may have to be interpreted as 8 or older but that last option did not come up)

I probably learned it at 4 years old, and forgot it around 20 years old. I hate math.

3. Recall quite clearly looking at the ground, taking in the distance, thinking: "I am three years old right now" and trying to get my head around the fact that the distance between me and the ground was set to become only bigger. But somehow it doesn't feel subjectively as if it's bigger.

I know for a fact I knew my age before I turned four, so I'm assuming I was three.

Or at a young age look back at certain moments and remember yourself as an adult when you were actually only 5?

I remeber being asked how old I was as a child and always looking at my mum in silence, knowing she would answer for me.

I was probably 9 or 10 beofre I could remember my date of birth....

First time I knew about my age and birthdate : 4 years. I remember that day (october 19th, 1990), I was arriving to the school with my mom, and she tells me: "Today is your birthday, now you're 4 years old" :D

I can remember being 5 and knowing I was 5, but not turning 5. There were 7 other siblings as well as both my parents who all celebrated their birthdays in a big way. I just felt I was the center of attention to all of them when I was 5 years old or younger. So I believed up until the age of 5 I had more birthdays than I could count every year. It was not until I turned 6 I realized that only one of those birthdays were mine.

I'm guessing around the age of 4 was when I was aware of my age. I don't remember much about my early childhood, so I'm just guessing.

I guess three because I remember thinking, on the day I turned four: "I'm four now" which must therefore mean I knew I was three beforehand. I'm surprised though, as we don't celebrate birthdays, and never have. I'm not sure how I knew - I suppose I must have been told.

During my earliest memory at age 3, I was aware how old I was. I also remember parts of my 4th birthday.
