    With application and offer receiver ratios swinging to show that more girls than boys begin medical school, should schools begin to offer more places to boys? Girls are of course statistically, likely to better at school than boys, and therefore get better grades, so do we offer less academically astute boys a place?

    Is there any scope for conversation regarding equality of opportunity, employability or just sexism?

    Let's keep things clean guys!

    No, that's sexist. People should get in on merit alone.

    I think that with anything, an introduction of caps could happen with nursing, as the gender ratio is insane. I personally don't think that they would introduce caps based on gender but rather based on part-time and full-time job applications for doctors.
