A hypothesis is a theory or statement that you set out to try and support or disprove. In this case I think that yours would be something along the lines of "boy in my year are generally taller than girls in my year". You would make this prediction at the start of your project and then during the evaluation you would say how your tests . research support or disprove your hypothesis!!!

"A proposition that is consistent with known data, but has been neither verified nor shown to be false. It is synonymous with conjecture."
