Since December 2014 we have been carrying out a DNA study in which we have been contacting TEDS twins to ask them for new DNA samples. The DNA collected will allow us to conduct many original and exciting genetic studies.

New TEDS book: G is for Genes

TEDS researchers Kathryn Asbury and Robert Plomin have published a new book called G is for Genes, about genetic influences on teaching and learning. The book is largely based on results from TEDS research projects.

The TEDS 18 Year Study

In August 2014, the third cohort of TEDS twins received A-level results, and we contacted them for our 18 Year Study. This involves a short questionnaire asking twins about their exam results and their plans for next year. We will soon be sending the same questionnaire to the remaining twins, in cohort 4.

TEDS twins collect GCSE results

On 22nd August 2013, the fourth and final cohort of TEDS twins received their results for their GCSEs and other qualifications such as BTECs and OCRNs. We have now contacted all the TEDS twins with a questionnaire to find out how they did!

Wellbeing project underway

In August 2012, we started a new study on wellbeing called TWIST. More families were invited to take part in January 2013.
