2011 GCSE Exam Results

The GCSE results for 2011 showed that the gender gap between girls and boys in terms of exam success increased from the 2010 figure. Over 26% of girls got an A* or A grade compared to 19.8% for boys. The 6.7% difference at these grades between girls and boys is the highest on record but confirms a trend that has been continuing for some years. Nick Gibb, the Coalition government’s Schools Minister, called the trend “a concern”. The gender gap widens when the grades A* to C are taken into consideration – 8.1% - but reduces to 6.6% when the grades A* to E are assessed.
