Abstract

This project is situated in the context of debates about gender and achievement at university, where men are still proportionately more likely to achieve first class degrees and more likely also to achieve third class degrees (Francis et al, 2001). Women are now obtaining more first degrees overall than men and (if first and upper second results are added together) more ‘good’ degrees than men, with all subjects being taken together.
