females makes better student than males
female mature faster than male and focus more on school study than male
Statistically that is the case in all fields except STEM (Science, technology, engineering, mathematics) areas, where males excel more... As for spending more time on it, it differs per household. As for college there are more females in every class except STEM (again) classes, so in two decades every field except STEM and service work will have more females working in it rather than males. The UK is actively trying to make sure the genders are equal in all fields... this includes areas where males must receive a boost.
well the fact that females make better students than males can be proven:)
in schools the most amount of disobeying students are mostly boys/males
another reasons females make better students is that they are always at most times attentive and are less likely to get in trouble:)
In my own experience girls disobey more, but on little things they are less likely to get caught on. For example, texting in class, having banned substances in their purses, etc Usually administrators and teachers are more lenient with them as well.
Also girls tend to be more talkative and less interested in the subjects and more so in the social scene. They do have better memory and multi-tasking skills and most of the grading system for primary education here is just a measure of how well you memorized. I would say a better measure of how well a student you are is how well you can apply the material your learning.
Not in my experience. I sit in the rather comfortable position of being top of every class I attend - across the board and without exception. Indeed, such is my advantage as renders my position quite unassailable.
Yeah, but in Secondary School which must be said isn't very challenging. When you go to University it's much harder to be at the top, and there will most certainly be females who are much smarter and more capable. Fact of life.
I guess it depends on what age the students have! at a young age I think it depends a lot on the child's personality, and support the child has from school and home. however, if the female has to juggle other family and work commitments (apart from education) it becomes more difficult. this becomes harder when the woman is a single-mother, or has an unsupportive social system.
Remember that I am merely sharing my experiences, not objective fact.
With that out of the way, when I was in High School it seemed to me that the women were not much more proficient than the men. I met good students from both genders, but the chief difference I observed was that women seemed to be more effervescent than the men, who were more competitive and tended to act as clowns. In my later years I observed that women at that age seemed almost inane much of the time, too worried about small things like dating older men or looking mature.
Now that I am much older, the women in my age group seem more mature than the men usually. They seem more complex, and share more interests with me than my male friends (note I said interests, not hobbies). For example, my male friends would almost never be interested in antiquing, are less enthusiastic about dining, and seem less interested in tea ceremony. On the other hand, when I wish to discuss and brainstorm the latest project, like building a micro-welder or distilling Nicotine from Nicotiana, my male friends seem more interested.
So my official position is that both genders have equal potential to be great students, just that there is a tendency for different categories of interests and consequently different ways of expressing it.
There has been a lot of research in this field, and a couple other debates here on it.
Statistically girls are better students than guys up to a certain age, especially in non-math and science fields.
Not to say that some guys are not better students, but girls in general have a longer attention span, and guys think more visually while girls tend to do better in a lecture environment - which is what school is.
It's just the way girls and guys brains are wired. Again, not every guy and girl, but in general.
By college age the difference pretty much evens out I've read.
