Results of the data analysis that cognitive ability was positively and significantly related with academic, with no difference between girls and boys on cognitive ability. Albeit the result shown that there was no gender-based difference cognitive ability (i (112) = -1.045; p> .05), however, we found an interesting finding in girls (M = 79,37; SD = 5.84) outperformed boys (M = 73,32; SD = 4, 49) on academic achievement.
