Hi Stata People

I just joined this community, and I am hoping someone can help with my issue.

I would appreciate some help with transforming the dataset below.
Reshape does not seem to work, but I may be applying it wrong.

The original dataset is as follows (with many more grade and subject
combinations):

StudId Gender  Subject1 Grade1 Subject2  Grade2   Subject3  Grade3
Subject4  Grade4
121    F           MATH       3        ENGLISH  4           GEOG     5
        FRENCH  5
122    F           ENGLISH  4        GEOG      5           MATH      5
123    M          FRENCH   2        ENGLISH  3           MATH      1
       GEOG      3
124    M          GEOG       1        MATH       2          ENGLISH  2

I would like it to look like this:

StudID  Gender  Math  English  French  Geog
121        F          3         4             5        5
122        F          5         4                       5
123        M         1         3             2         3
124        M          2        2                        1

Thanks for any help you can provide.

Cheers
