From perspective of male students, the presence of females in their surroundings will make them more cautious about their attitude, body language, and performance at school.
Coeducation creates sense of competition, but this sense of competition is not just limited to the boundaries of academics, the influence is to the extent of extra circular activities; therefore at coeducational units the focus on extra circular activities is severe than single-sex schools.
Research results have verified that single-sex education has academic and social advantages; it gives ample opportunity to the students to focus more upon the academic challenges. The academic struggle invested by the students in single-sex education is more extreme compared against coeducation institutes where element of extra circular activities prevails.
As per research, no negative effects on the performance of female students have been observed while studying in single-sex schools.
