Researchers claim September babies are the most successful, The Sun reported.

Research conducted by a team from the University of Toronto, University of Florida and Northwestern University, found people born in the ninth month of the year are more confident and have a higher chance of going to university.

You are even at a reduced risk of going to prison, according to the study, the report states.

The reason for this is because the school year in most Western countries starts in September making babies born in this month the eldest in the academic year.

Education in your early years can have a huge impact on maturity and development.

That bit of extra experience in these formative years, helps babies get ahead in class, which results in better school performance.

The study's results are based on information collected from public schools in Florida (US). September also happens to be the most popular time in Britain.

Since India's school year start in June this may not apply to us, but research is needed to find out the success rate of babies born in the six month in the country.
