Singapore still top in science


From The Straits Times:

SINGAPORE has retained its top position in a worldwide study of young students’ performances in science, but fallen to second and third position for Primary 4 and Secondary 2 respectively in mathematics.

The results of the Trends in International Mathematics and Science Study, which involved more than 400,000 Grade 4 and 8 students – aged 10 and 14 respectively – across 59 global education systems, were released yesterday.

Great news for educators and students in Singapore. I was wondering what are Singapore students’ positions in languages and ICT skills. Any studies?
