19a Person driven from class, almost expelled, having turned 20 in it(8) - I think the answer to 20 is Behave.
o?t?*?t?

18d Upset old Indonesian islander's native people(6)
?*?a?o
The answers share the same letter where the asterisks are.

I too have he answer behave.

I am also struggling with 19a and 18d, but think 19a may be OUTCASTE (though I don't see what 20 turned has to do with it) and 18d - could it be something like Malayo, though again I can't see why.

Thanks again for helping me out earlier.

18d is NAVAJO (anagram of 'o' and 'javan') so I think 19a could be OUTCASTE or something like it.

I can see now it is O(ld) Javan backwards

Ouste(d) = almost expelled.
act(backwards) = behave

Just seen why it is OUTCASTE

Almost expelled is ousted (without the d) and this contains act backwards, which is behave.

Thanks everyone.

I would think BEAU is right Trevor ('Bea' being short for 'Beatrix' perhaps).
