2 intakes of first year students (n = 54 and n = 60) were given the Eysenck Personality Questionnaire (EPQ; Eysenck & Eysenck, 1985) soon after arriving at university. 3 years later they wrote their final examinations consisting of 7 3-hour papers. Results showed that students high on Neuroticism were more likely to write their examinations in the health center or to provide a doctor's note than were students low on Neuroticism. There was no difference in Extraversion, Psychoticism, or Lie scale scores in their final grades.
