A study carried out by The Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) in 2017 assessed 125,000 15-year-olds to test how well they solved problems collaboratively. The study found that girls were more 1.6 likely than boys to be top performers when it came to this skill, whereas boys are better in individual problem-solving tests.
According to analysts, the findings imply girls are better equipped for the workplace and modern working methods than boys.
