Effects of mean A level grade, total AH5 score, and AH5 verbal and spatial subscores on various outcome measures. All effects are simple effects that do not take other variables into account; all analyses, however, take differences in general practice/hospital into account. Analyses for time to event use Cox regression and other analyses use multiple regression. Figures are regression b (SE) and P values
