You can't really match a rating to an age.

There are 50-year-old 800-rated players, and there are 12-year-old Grandmasters.

But on average though

It depends how much time you devote to chess

I started chess when I was about 10, I've started actually playing more about a year and a half ago

This. An “average” of any age would default to somewhere around 800.

eh. I've been playing for over a decade now. Many others here like blueemu have been playing longer than I've been alive.

If you are not yet a GM, you will never be world champion.
