Boolean keyword search

(“underperformance* OR “poor performance*) AND (“female students” OR girls OR Female pupils OR girl students OR female learners) NOT boys

After trying the Boolean keyword search on google

At first, the results were not helpful, and therefore had to refine them. At first, when I included all the synonyms, their results were generally on poor performance based on gender differences and therefore not specific to the female students; performance. Consequently, I had to use a few synonyms to get a helpful search result.
