Your Birth Month Sets the Tone for Your Education

According to British researchers from the Institute of Fiscal Studies (IFS), your birth month may determine your academic skills. Researchers have studied around 48,500 students and teenagers. Cognitive skills seem to be connected to month of birth.

  • Lowest rate – August: Children born this month have lower confidence in their abilities and are usually unhappy during school days. They don’t attend top universities.
  • Highest rate – September: They might attend top universities. However, they prefer taking vocational courses. Also, they rate better in exam results than children born in August.

Birthday May Turn You into a Successful Sportsperson

Researchers from the Open University have studied football players from England, ice hockey enthusiasts from Canada and participants at the Beijing Olympics. They have found a correlation between birthdays of players and their success. First results have shown a significant percentage of 57% of the players being born in September, November and December. Only 14% of them were born in June – August.

  • Children born in January, February and March have more advantages than other hockey players. However, this is also due to the official cut-off date, which is January 1st.
  • January, February and March children are usually bigger than others, being born after cut-off dates.
  • Children born in September are usually older than other players from their teams and have more time to develop. August is the cut-off month, so children born the next month have size and coordination advantages.
