There was a comparatively smaller sample derived from studies at the primary level. Academic performance was found to correlate significantly with Agreeableness, Conscientiousness… Expand

TLDR
The Eysenckian scales do not add to the prediction of academic performance beyond that provided by FFM scales, and the measurement and validity problems of Psychoticism mean its continued use in academic settings is unjustified. Expand
