TES have reported that taller students do better at school based on a study of over 10,000 students in the USA.

Each extra foot in height was associated with staying in school for half a year longer, on average, as well as higher grades.
The pattern was a much stronger for boys than for girls.
According to research that may grate with those of a smaller stature, taller people can typically achieve higher grades and stay in education for longer.


Is it true for UK students? Post your height and your average grades and let's compare

Yep

Apparently 'taller students' say in school for longer too......

I'm 5"8 and I think my average grade was a B..... and 2:1 at uni averaging around 65%..... but that was a long time ago

Is that because they can't get out of the doors?

You need to control for gender. Otherwise boys will do "better" than girls.

But the original study accounted for factors such as gender, race, age, parental education and health

We're going for a straight forward 'nice and easy' comparison between grades and height :idea:

At GCSE: 5'3 - 2 A*, 1 A, 5 B and 1 C
At A Level: 5'3 - BBC
At uni: 5'3 - First

So I haven't grown in 7 years, I think that's the main worry here.
