Anne Spence, 66, liturgist, Gosforth: Girls mature before boys. They are more serious with their work.

Pat McMahon, 68, child care consultant, Durham: Boys are more easily distracted and lacking in confidence.

Arthur Haggan, 58, care worker, Washington: Girls do well whereas boys are more interested in getting jobs

Ross Allen, 27, revenue manager, Jesmond: Boys have other things on their minds. They get serious when they turn 18.

Lucie Brownlee, 29, council worker, Gosforth: Girls are higher achievers. There is still a long way to go to narrow the gap.
