Women 'surpass men' at UK universities

..and worldwide.

But that doesn't necessarily mean girls are improving:

"A science test taken by 11 and 12-year-olds in the mid-1970s had been successfully passed by 54% of boys and 27% of girls.When the same test was taken in 2003, the scores for both boys and girls had fallen to 17% - a much more rapid decline for boys."
