Gender, previous GPA, time of taking FES was dominant risk factors related to risk of FES score. The students who had higher cumulative Grade Point Average (GPA) had 72% higher on final FES score [adjusted relative risk (RRα) = 1.72; 95% Confidence interval (CI) = 1.22-2.43). Female than male students had 39% higher final FES score (RRα = 1.39; 95% CI = 0.93-2.09; P = 0.111), and the students who took than who did not take FES on recommended year of study had 29% higher final FES score (RR = 1.29; 95% CI = 0.96-1.73; P = 0.088).
