The charts below show the percentages of male and female students getting top grades in 1960 and 2000. Summarise the information by selecting and reporting the main features and make comparisons where relevant.

The given column graphs compare the proportion of boys and girls getting top grades in five
subjects, which are science, arts, maths, languages and humanities, in 1960 and 2000. It is
clear from the graph that girls scored higher in Arts and languages, whereas boys scored
higher in science and math in the given years.

In 1960, slightly over 30% boys scored good grades in science and maths, whereas in
languages and humanities the high scorers were 20% each. Only one in ten scored high in
Arts. In contrast, girls did much better in languages, Arts and humanities, with 45%, 32%
and 30% scoring high in these subjects respectively. Only 10% girls scored high in science
and the least (5 %) scored high in maths.

In 2000, among boys, the percentage of top scorers in arts and humanities almost doubled
where as that in science and math became approximately half as compared to the figures of
1960. The percentage of top scorers in languages remained the same. Among girls, however,
the percentage of top scorers in arts, languages and humanities decreased moderately,
whereas that in science and maths remained the same.

Overall, it is surprising to see that boys scored better than girls in humanities in the year
