Hi, looking at the scores, I would say, and that's just my poor tired brain trying to get my head around them, that the differential is even wider actually. For example, last year we know that Tommies score of 234 was in Pates 120 and 237 was the last Denmark score we know to be in the 120. This year, the figures look more likely to be around 243 being the lowest Denmark score into the 120 and tommies, the lowest result we know for sure being in 120 is 239 as 236 gave a place of 148th ranking. So its got to be around 237, I reckon.
So, the cohorts are obviously different, but maybe, as my theory goes for this year, the boys found the tests harder than the girls. Just a theory.
An interesting thing I also have realised, from a group of people I know personally, out of 12 Pates passes, three quarters were pre Xmas birthdays and only 3 were boys. Totally random, but I'd love to know if this is indicative of the overall results this year. Ie favouring older in the year girls. Ooohh!
...and aiming to send the spreadsheet to one of the moderators for insertion tomorrow, after I've ensured it's in the format required.
