Sir: Readers who are worried that they may have blighted their children's academic lives by carelessly causing them to be born in the summer months ('Children born in the summer months 'do less well in exams' ', 24 June) may be comforted by the following: my son informs me that, of the 14 undergraduates who have just completed their first year reading mathematics at St John's College, Cambridge, no less than six, including himself, were born in July.

Yours faithfully,


Clewer, Somerset
