    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

    This probably has something to do with shorter guys seeing themselves as less attractive and subsequently having less confidence/self-belief.

    Currently finishing a PhD and I'm 5'9 which is above average for women, though perhaps not 'tall'.
    I'd consider that tall, in the same way I'd consider a 6ft/6ft1 man tall.

    Edit: According to the ONS in 2010, your average UK woman is only 5ft 3 and weighs 11 stone! :eek: I call bs, it's 5ft 6 in the US.

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