“part of final year exams which students take in year five”
Isn’t this actually an insult to women? You can take the exam home because you’re not as smart as men.
The New York Post reported:
University lets female students take home exam to try and close gender gap
In an effort to help female students close the gap on men, they will be allowed to sit exams at home.
Oxford University in the UK is going to let history students answer a paper from home. The paper is part of final year exams which students take in year five.
On a closer look at the data, it was found that 32 percent of women scored the highest grade in history at Oxford. That’s in comparison to 37 percent of men. The learning from that was “men are much more likely to get a first-class degree,” reports The Times.
The new exam format will begin in the next academic year.
Oxford is one of the most renowned and elite universities in the UK. Sitting closely alongside it in those terms is Cambridge University.
The Times reports, the average gender gap is nearly nine percent across all subjects. As a result, Cambridge is reviewing their system “in order to understand any variations and how we can mitigate them effectively.”
