    I love how you went from BBC to a first at uni; there is hope
    A level grades are not contributory/predictors to doing particularly well at University.

    I think this has to do with nutrition and diet. The taller you are, the less chance of stunted growth, and hence, a more developed brain - which speaks for itself

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







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

    Wow, this is an interesting study:
    I'm 5ft 2 and I'm at GCSE still but I'm predicted 12A*s(8 in English, 9 in maths) ( I already got A* and A in chemistry and Physics last year)

    My friend who is just under 5ft is also predicted 12A*s(8 in English, 8 in maths) (got AA last year)

    Dunno if this helps you or not?
