Are you born in this month? You’re more likely to be successful
Researchers believe that people born in one particular month are more likely to become successful.
The study was conducted by researchers from the Universities of Toronto, Florida and Northwestern. They looked at data from around one million public school students in Florida, born between 1994 and 2000.
It has been found that students born in September were more confident, more likely to go to university and less likely to go to juvenile prison, as the Independent reports. Furthermore, students born in August tended to struggle more in school.
The reason behind the extremes might be attributed to the school year – in England and Wales, as well as many US states, school begins in September, making September birth the oldest and August births the youngest. The 11 month-gap might impact the confidence of the students.
