Girls get better grades in school and university in general than boys- so come on guys, get your act together!
But here’s a surprise: boys in general outscore girls in aptitude tests. There may be several reasons for this such as:
- Boys treat aptitude tests as a game to be beaten and strategise
- School and university tests/exams reward hardwork, whereas aptitude tests reward skills
But wait a minute: In the UMAT however, there is no discernible difference in the overall UMAT scores between boys and girls because the second section advantages girls. MedEntry UMAT training provides strategies on how to identify and work on your weaknesses.
