Today :-New Delhi, Mar – The notion that girls are not good with numbers and science is just a myth, if date from a nationwide survey of more than 2.7 lakh students is any indicator. The survey conducted on Class X students showed girls performed on an equal footing with boys in mathematics, science and social sciences. Another common belief-that girls have better language skills. Girls outperformed boys in English and other languages in the survey conducted in 2015 by the National Council of Educational Research and Training (NCERT) in 7.216 schools following different boards across 33 states and Union territories. The Study also highlighted rampant under-performance among students in rural settings, those studying in government schools and hailing from underprivileged backgrounds such as Dalits and tribals.
