The main purpose of this cross-sectional study was to compare the acceptance rate (AR) of left-handers (LHs) with that of right-handers (RHs) in the college entrance examination (CEE) for the national universities in Iran. During 5 successive years, fifty thousand participants in this exam were randomly sampled. We evaluated the relationships between AR and hand preference, sex, college admission (CA), entrance exam score (EES) and study areas: Mathematics, Natural Sciences, Humanities and Art. The acceptance rate of the LHs over the entire study period was significantly higher than that of the RHs (27.3% versus 24.3%, p < 0.0001). The mean score attained on examination by LHs was significantly higher than that of RHs in all study areas (p < 0.002). The acceptance rate of LHs in all study areas was higher but the difference reached statistical significance in the Art area only (p < 0.01). It is concluded that left-handers may be regarded as a heterogeneous large group consisting of different subgroups. Those who are able to compete for the college entrance examination score are even more successful than right-handers in terms of average EES and the rate of CA.
