Applying material from Item B and your knowledge, evaluate the claim that although girls outperform boys in terms of achievement, the experience of schooling reinforces traditional gender identities. (30 marks)

The 'examiner's advice' says you should consider a range of explanations for the difference in achievement between boys and girls

Why? This doesn't seem to be what the question is asking you to do
"girls outperform boys in terms of achievement" this is given as a statement of fact, why do I have to analyse the reasons behind it?

I would of just focused on the second part of the question about gender identities
