Poor mark link with schizophrenia

8th August 2008

A study has shown that poor marks at school can lead to more danger of a child having schizophrenia in the future.

The UK and Swedish team looked at over 900,000 children and found that a low grade doubled the danger of schizophrenia. The study's leader, Dr James MacCabe said: "Doing badly at school is not a cause of schizophrenia, but it is a marker for something not being quite right several years prior to diagnosis".
