What kind of careers in science do 15-year-old boys and girls expect for themselves?

• On average across OECD countries, almost one in four students – whether boy or girl – expects to work in an occupation that requires further science training beyond compulsory education.

• Boys are more than twice as likely as girls to expect to work as engineers, scientists or architects; and 4.8% of boys, but only 0.4% of girls, expect to work as ICT professionals, on average across OECD countries.

• Girls are almost three times more likely than boys to expect to work as doctors, veterinarians, nurses or other health professionals.
