It is a misconception that girls cannot outdo boys in science.

It is a wrong belief that girls can't outscore boys in science subjects/courses.

Do both of the above sound right and mean about the same? Thanks.

Hi,

They sound the same to me. However, I think adding subjects/courses in the second sentence tends to diminish the generality of 'science'.
