The impact of gambling on schoolwork
The survey also explored the potential impact of gambling on schoolwork, homework or personal studies. Less than one in twenty young people who were actively involved in gambling felt that it made it hard for them to put effort into their work or study either sometimes, often or all of the time (4 percent).
Those in the ‘at risk’ group were more likely to feel this way than those categorised as ‘non-problem’ gamblers (12 percent compared to 2 percent).
