According to recent studies, it has been proven that girls have a much faster learning speed than the opposite gender. Most girls have been able to absorb information with less difficulties. Even according to this opinion in debate.org has proven it.

Girls indeed get better grades. I have no more words to add

Boys generally demonstrate superiority over female peers in areas of the brain involved in math and geometry. These areas of the brain mature about four years earlier in boys than in girls, according to a recent study that measured brain development in more than 500 children. Researchers concluded that when it comes to math, the brain of a 12-year-old girl resembles that of an 8-year-old boy. Conversely, the same researchers found that areas of the brain involved in language and fine motor skills (such as handwriting) mature about six years earlier in girls than in boys.

So, do these sex differences even out over time?

Females and males maintain unique brain characteristics throughout life. Male brains, for instance, are about 10% larger than female brains. But bigger doesn't necessarily mean smarter.

Disparities in how certain brain substances are distributed may be more revealing. Notably, male brains contain about 6.5 times more gray matter -- sometimes called 'thinking matter" -- than women.

Although I do think somehow, this is a very opinion related question and depends how you see it. I will now begin Round 2 .
Scientists have proven that many girls can do well in Mathematics too. Science and Math papers were given out to the group of boys and girls. Most of the girls got perfect scores. There were less perfect scores for the boys. Although that doesn't actually prove the intellect of girls is higher, it proves that girls can be just as good or maybe better.

I guess it's because this is an extremely debatable question therefore it really depends on the girls or boys the scientists are testing.

You have restrictions on this debate, but I'll make comment. Up to a point, during early years in education do girls perform slightly better than boys. This is due to different growth rates. There are many variables at play, but boys do catch up where both become equal in learning capabilities. In the end, neither boys or girls are more intelligent than the other.
