Blame your Genes for your Poor Grades in School

Children’s ability to score better grades may be encoded in their DNA, say scientists who found that around two-thirds of individual differences in academic achievement can be explained by comparing genes.

For many years, research has linked educational achievement to live trajectories, such as occupational status, health or happiness.

However, researchers from the University of Texas in the US and King’s College London in the UK showed that genes have a substantial influence on academic success, from the start of elementary school to the last day of high school.
