Australia: Girls now out-performing boys in nearly every HSC subject

Article here. Excerpt:

'Girls are outperforming boys in most Higher School Certificate subjects and doing almost as well in the historically male strongholds of mathematics and physics, leaving chemistry as one of the few subjects in which the top bands are dominated by boys.

Girls’ particularly strong performance in English renewed concerns about the subject’s mandatory inclusion in students’ Australian Tertiary Admission Rank, amid concerns it disadvantages boys.

Ahead of the release of Higher School Certificate results, NSW Education Standards Authority data from 2019 to 2021, obtained by the Herald, shows the trend of boys falling behind in key areas earlier in high school continues into senior years.'
