Dyslexics are generally served by having extra time in the implementation, but You can not rule out that the extra time that dyslexics are offered leads to them experiencing less time pressure compared to everyone else who writes the test without extra time. The result can be problematic from a fairness perspective because the goal of the extra time is for dyslexics to be allowed to write the test under the same conditions as other participants.

Students with foreign-born parents generally perform worse than expected in higher education. In a study, the proportion of completed higher education credits during the first year is used as a measure of study success and expected results are based on regression models with grades and higher examination results as predictors.
