Abstract: We use Schlage-Puchta's concept of p-deficiency and Lackenby's property of p-largeness to show that a group having a finite presentation with p-deficiency greater than 1 is large. What about when p-deficiency is exactly one? We also generalise a result of Grigorchuk on Coxeter groups to odd primes.
