This is interesting. Data: The coefficients below use lots of data on grades at a particular third level institution, and a range of control variables, and show the overall effect of points on undergraduate grades (gpa-like scale) plus the additional effects of points in Irish, English and Maths:Overall 0.495***Irish -0.038*English 0.003Maths 0.230***(points are divided by 100)Interpretation: while overall points have a substantial effect on 3rd level performance, doing particularly well in Irish or English has little or no beneficial effect, but doing particularly well in maths has a strong effect. This is not evidence that doing LC maths is beneficial, but that those who do well at it will continue to do well. (Pardon the interruption; I just wanted to show that I have data).
Good,why not write it up and publish?
