(BREITBART) – Work by Swedish researchers suggests that the grades of attractive female students are boosted by a “beauty premium” which they lost when classes moved online during lockdown, while the grades of attractive male students were unaffected.
In a research paper titled ‘Student beauty and grades under in-person and remote teaching’, Adrian Mehic of Lund University examined “the role of student facial attractiveness on academic outcomes under various forms of instruction” by having a “jury” of 74 people rate the looks of 307 engineering students from 1 (extremely unattractive) to 10 (extremely attractive).

Mehic found that there did indeed appear to be a so-called “beauty premium” for attractive students, with both males and females receiving higher grades “in courses with significant teacher-student interaction” — at least, when education was in-person.
