Age Limit Maze Entry

Hi, in the Official Rules for Maze Entry 2024 it says that this category is open for students up to 16 years(age as of 1 July). For me the Problem is that i am the oldest one in my Team and in 2025 only 3 weeks earlier I get 16. Now i have heard and somewhere read something about an one time Exception in special cases. Could anybody tell me if that is true and where to find it written down?
