Follow-up - Batoul Dawaa
Everyone knows the role of sport in improving physical, mental and psychological health alike. Studies have also linked the effect of sports on students' grade point average and academic achievement.
Studies conducted by researchers have proven that exercising regularly during study helps improve students’ exam scores because it develops their cognitive skills.
Swiss researchers conducted experiments on the levels of learning and activity of about 193 students between the ages of 8 to 12 years who exercised regularly.
And they found a link between physical fitness and test results, especially in French and mathematics, according to the British newspaper, "Daily Mail".
However, the team said the link was indirect. Physical fitness helps improve executive function and cognitive flexibility. Which in turn helps you excel in subjects and subjects that rely on specific and structured answers, such as mathematics.
Co-author Julien Chanal explained that “by analyzing these effects via a statistical mediation model. We demonstrated that the link between cardiorespiratory fitness and academic performance was
indirect and in fact. Physical fitness is linked to better executive functions, and it really is an executive function that affects school performance.”
