Table 4 Results of logistic regression (within a Generalised Estimating Equations (GEE) framework) predicting the odds of passing each year at first attempt (compared to another academic outcome) according to standardised UKCAT scores compared to logistic regression (GEE) of standardised UKCAT scores, adjusted for school advanced qualifications. Both models control for time (i.e. year of sitting)
