Oxford University Give Women More Time On Exams To Promote ‘Equality’

Oxford Uni grants more time to women in exams as part of equality

Oxford University allowed female students extra time on their summer 2017 exams in an effort to promote ‘equality’ among the sexes. 

Women taking exams at the prestigious university are given an extra 15 minutes to complete their tests so that they score higher in math and science  – two fields women fall abysmally short of men.

Dailycaller.com reports: The policy change came after school officials decided that women were more adversely affected by time constraints than men, based on their own conjectures rather than any recent studies which have reported such results.

In fact, men and women perform equally well on high-time-pressure math tests according to a Harvard study on gender differences in output quality and quantity under pressure. Women also significantly outperform men in low-time-pressure verbal tasks.

An Oxford university spokesman maintained however, that allowing women more time on math and science exams is “academically demanding and fair” because 39 percent of women earn what are known as “first class degrees” in math, while 47 percent of men do so.

While some female students are upset over the insinuation that women are not as academically capable as men, other students are quite happy that they’ll now get extra time to improve their scores.

“I am uneasy about schemes to favour one gender over another,” Oxford undergraduate student Antonia Siu told the Telegraph. “But I am happy when people see gaps between groups of people who should not reasonably have such gaps – such as between genders, races or class – and take that as a starting point to think about the kinds of people they unintentionally are leaving behind.”

The extra allotted time for female test takers comes after the university’s board of examiners suggested that the Math and Science departments do something to equalize the results of male and female test takers.

    So women must be mentally, as well as physically inferior to men for this decision to be made.
    This is not equality, this is blatant feminazi sexism at its best.
    But society seems to be ok with sexism against men, and racism against whites these days.
    A revolution is coming.

    So basically women are dumber and slower than men…. WELL WE ALREADY KNEW THAT…ffs where is the news in this..

    Before bone heads start thinking they are superior to females…and no i am not a feminiza – i do believe we are both equal as humans, but in different ways – lets say we complement each other and adjust differently to issues
    i suggest reading this article that explains why women are ‘slower’ than men in certain exams


    …However, Professor Averil MacDonald, a board member of the Women in Science and Engineering campaign and chairman in science engagement at the University of Reading, said his statement was ‘factually incorrect’.
    She pointed out that while boys dominated subjects such as physics, girls actually achieve better results across the board.

    She added: ‘Girls are outperforming boys at all subjects. They are getting better results than boys even in subjects like physics, which are traditionally seen as a male preserve.

    ‘Boys may be following gut feeling, but that isn’t necessarily the way to get the right result.’
    Professor MacDonald agreed that boys did tend to be favoured when more weight was given to exams than coursework.

    to put it simply – i prefer a good surgeon operating on me to take his time to get things right from study and experience, not a surgeon with ‘gut feelings’ and chance
    (and that counts for male or females)

      BLA BLA BLA … SHUT YOUR CAKEHOLE smudgeFACE…LOL..fuken women.. women should be seen and not heard..just like kids…

    Now that is super sexist, so they are saying women are much less intelligent than men so they have to give them more time to try to just complete the test.
