It's different for Girls - Physics Report 2012

Posted by Audrey Curnock on Monday, October 15, 2012
Interesting report form the Institute of Physics.  Two of the key findings are :
  • 49% of maintained co-ed schools sent no girls on to take A-level physics in 2011. The figure for all secondary schools is 46%
  • Girls were almost two and a half times more likely to go on to do A-level physics if they came from a girls’ school rather than a co-ed school (for all types of maintained schools in England)
 For the full report follow the link below.
