Letter: GCSEs' success

The Independent Culture
Sir: Media coverage of the A-level results is unfairly girl-biased. Front pages show ecstatic girls hugging each other; every radio and television report is dominated by girls. In your UCAS Listings supplement (20 August) you show three jubilant cropped blondes on the cover with not a boy in sight. There is the inevitable pair of girls hugging on your front page (20 August). On pages 4 and 5, girls again outnumber boys by 5:1.
