Study: girls get higher marks than boys despite worse test results
Girls at secondary schools get higher marks than boys despite worse test results, according to new study by the consultancy firm Scio released on Tuesday. The analysis found that boys who received C grades in maths did better at tests than girls who got higher grades. The firm said this was due to the fact that teachers consider girls more hardworking and conscientious than boys. The study also found that strictest evaluation criteria apply to math as compared to other subjects.
