This genetic factor is inherited from both parents and can be passed on to future generations.

Additionally, if someone needs to work during their studies, it may limit their ability to fully focus on their education and acquire additional qualifications. These factors can shape a person's educational and professional journey, ultimately influencing the qualifications they possess.
