Researchers found that compared with those with no allergy symptoms, British students who report allergies or take allergy medications during their
secondary education exit exams are 40 percent to 70 percent more likely to score a full grade lower than they did on their practice test.
For students allergic to pollen, Mr. Bensnes found
that a pollen count increase of 37 — large enough to cause symptoms in highly allergic people — is associated with a drop of about one-tenth of a point in exam scores.
The study used data from nearly 70,000 high school exit exams, which Norwegian
students must pass to graduate and are used for higher education placement.
Students take exams at different locations, and each student takes several at different times of year, providing multiple data points per student.
