also remarked that the study showed that performance was not merely down to effort, adding, "Some children find it easier to learn than others do, and I think it's appetite as much as aptitude. There is a motivation, maybe because you like to do what you are good at."
Genetics play biggest role in exam performance
36% of the variation in exam results across all subjects.Robert Plomin, an expert in behavioural genetics who led the King's College London study, said, "The question we are asking is why do children differ in their GCSE scores? People immediately think it's schools. But if schools accounted for all the variance, then children in one classroom would all the be the same."In order to investigate the role of genetics in exam results the team studied GCSE results from identical twins, who have 100% of the same genes, and non identical twins, who on average share half of the genes that normally vary between different people. Examining the results of twins allowed the researchers to work out how much of the difference was down to genetics and how much caused by environment.When a pair of identical twins get differing exam results, the cause cannot be genetic and so must be the result of what is known as "non shared environment" effects like one having a Converse Women 2017
The differences in exam results between different pupils at secondary school are driven more by genetics than teachers schools or home environment, a study has found. The research looked at the exam scores of more then 11,000 16 year olds taking their GSCEs.Results in sciences were more heritable than those in humanities. But the findings do not mean that a child's performance at school is determined solely by their genes, or Converse Price that school and environment have no impact.

better teacher. While a pupil's performance is influenced by their DNA it is not set by it. One child may excel while their twin might not. But by taking an average over the population studied, around half of the variation in GCSE scores was identified as being a result of genetics.Plomin Converse White Dainty 5.5
