    I'm guessing: "There is a positive correlation between age of student and grade achieved in (Maths and English) GCSEs."
    And I would expect the correlation coefficient to be slightly positive but statistically insignificant.

    Monthly age difference, right? As she only asked for month of birth...

    Would be interesting to see if people born in August that start the school year a few months later than somebody born in February, does better or worse based on starting school up to 11 months sooner than somebody born early in the school year.

    Presumably the assumption is that everyone takes GCSEs in the same school year, and hence is within a one year age range. Not quite true, but it'll be close.

    Done, but did you mean English Language or Literature? I always forget which one I got the higher grade in, but I just put the higher grade anyway. :ninja:

    I'm August 31st- youngest of the young, it seems.
    Took Maths and English a year early too, got A*s for both.
    :dontknow:

    It shouldn't make much difference, right?
    I mean, even if someone's born a bit later, everyone enrols in school at the same time, and everyone gets the same amount of education.

    Yeah, I don't think there would be any difference. And if there is it'll probably be so small that it wouldn't matter. Would be interesting if there actually was though...

    I myself was born in late August too

    Oh yeah! I also took Maths a year early. The survey doesn't cater for that! :hmmm:

    On The One Show (that reputable source of information), they said August babies generally turned out to be dumber, and shorter than their peers.
    I mean, they weren't so blunt, obviously, that's just the jist.
