Study suggests fitness and iron deficiency linked to GPA

Researchers at the University of Nebraska–Lincoln and Pennsylvania State University have found that a student’s fitness level and iron status could be the difference between making an A or a B. In the study based at Penn State, evidence suggested female college students who were fit and had normal iron levels achieved higher GPAs than unfit women who were iron deficient. The difference in grade point average was as much as 0.34—enough to drop or increase a letter grade.
