Seriously they are, how are us men supposed to multitask. i did a mock involving counting bulbs and on how enzymes work and it would be a great skill to multitask. I realise i probably sound really sexist.

Not true. I'm probably the worst person at multitasking in my entire class, and I'm a woman! I'm pretty good at Bio, but I'm rotten at its application... I get extra time on my exams and I'm still worse at multitasking than anyone else. Not sexist, just misinformed...

what do you mean about multitasking in bio exams? You sit there and answer questions, it's not like you have to do a headstand at the same time....

Although yes some research has found women can multitask better than men, the biology practicals involve such easy multitasking that this would have no effect anyway. Practicals often involve doing a task whilst leaving another task (cutting seeds whilst other seeds in water bath boiling), which isn't actually multitasking anyway because you only have to focus on one thing at a time, although there may be many things to be done during the whole practical.

If you think you are going to do badly i'm sorry but your gonna need a better excuse than that.

not reeeally, we don't know when what hormones are released and what they do. That's equally hard to learn if you are male or female.

If you believe that you can multitask, then you can!
I know it sounds lame but it's so true. I think the only reason that things like 'only women can mulitask' comes about it because people have come to believe it, consequently and unconsciously 'stereotyping' themselves into it. I don't believe in it.
