The Pearson’s chi-squared test was used for determined the significance of differences between the answers of male and female students.
It was found that male students are significantly more likely than female students to engage in sections in one of the types of physical culture and sports activities (48.6 and 18.6% of the respondents, respectively, p = 0.030), they more easily fulfill the requirements for the discipline "Physical Culture" (I perform "Easy" and “Rather easily” were answered by 62.2 and 21.6% of the male surveyed students and 27.9 and 27.9% of the female students, p = 0.012), more often they find opportunities for performing hygienic procedures after classes (51.4% of the male students and 14% female students take showers, p = 0.001). Male and female students generally positively assess the content and conditions for conducting classes in physical education, consider them an integral part of the curriculum. At the same time, most male and female students do not consider it appropriate to introduce a larger number of theoretical classes in physical education; most of them feel tired in subsequent sessions. Recognizing the importance of the biologically justified amount of physical activity, only 46.8% of the male surveyed students and 18.6% of female students find opportunities for extra-curricular physical exercises.
