Now that girls have much better educational opportunity it's hardly surprising that there are more of them going to university than boys. As a teacher and tutor, the reason is blindingly obvious. In general, girls work a lot harder than boys. Unlike the bleeding heart liberals in education, I'm not going to agonize over this; boys are getting what they richly deserve for their laziness. I myself could have got better grades both at school and university. The only person I blame for me not doing so is myself! Because like most boys and young men, I was lazy.
