When you say "if you are over 30 years old" or "don't trust over 30", are the people who are exactly 30 years old included?

Strictly speaking, you are exactly 30 years old on the day of your birthday, as registered in the birth certificate.
It should be '30 and above' if you want to be precise about it but is it necessary?
not a teacher
"30 and over" means anyone who is 30 years old or more.
"Over 30" means anyone who is 31 years old and more.
May I ask who told you "Don't trust over 30s"?
Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
"Don't trust anyone over 30!" was a rallying cry of the hippies in the 1960s.
Exactitude about the age would not have been a priority among them.
