Researchers at the University of Bath claim that results of Maths and English tests are linked to the length of pupils’ fingers. They believe that parents can predict their children’s exam performance just by looking at their hands. Apparently pupils with shorter ring fingers tend to be more literate and better at English, whilst their peers with longer ring fingers tend to be more numerate and better at Maths. Interesting.

Meanwhile a survey reveals that more and more people in the over 50’s age group are learning how to use Ipods, mobile phones and computers, after inheriting their children and grandchildren’s “cast-offs!” Apparently kids are passing their “old” gadgets onto their parents and grandparents when they upgrade to new, more sophisticated ones!
