I'm curious about this. When I started AS Further Maths last september there were 8 students in the class. All but 2 of the students were boys. This september 5 students will be continuing A Level Further Maths of which none are girls. Peeps I genuinely have this question in mind : Do (enough) girls do Further Maths? Haven't seen any on TSR!

It's interesting, at my uni the split for maths is maybe 60:40 M:F so they must exist somewhere doing Further Maths :lol: but in general STEM (with the exception of a few subjects) are male-dominated like that.

Sorry I don't understand what you mean. Could you make it clearer?

* I read the sentence correctly now so I understand the context. At first I read it like this : "Was pretty, even at my college"

I reckon Physics at A level or University is male-dominated. Is it true Biology female-dominated?

* Directed at everyone

In my FM class of about 15, there were 3 girls, but in maths it was an even split.

At my school a few years ago, the only person doing further maths was a girl. All the boys dropped out before year 13.

Wow! I think it's rare to see a situation like that.

Not that surprising at a boy's school.

Stats have been given already. In the year above me, only one person, a girl, did Further Maths. In my year, I was the only one to do Further Maths fully, while a girl did Further Maths AS. So in my experience, girls do Further Maths lel.

There wasn't a single girl in my regular Maths class (neither of us doing Further Maths attended as a rule, I went to a few lessons on S2). The girl doing Further Maths was the only girl in my Physics class. So in general my school had pretty stark splits. Well, there were far more girls at AS in both subjects but they all dropped it.
