In this paper the 1997 results of the CXC examinations for Jamaica are analysed in an effort to determine male female patterns of participation and performance. Data were obtained and scrutinised in terms of male female differences in a two stage analysis. Firstly, differences were examined for: the overall total of thirty-six (36) subjects and then for each of the sixteen (16) academic and twenty (20) technical-vocational subjects. At the second stage, differences were examined for: coeducational and single-sex schools, and school types.
