PISA Report 2015: UK Students’ Math, Science and Reading not as Good as their Peers

Finally, much awaited PISA 2015 results are out and it is not so exciting for UK. Yes, in the education survey, UK is ranked 15 for science, up from 21st position, but math rankings dropped one place to 27th and UK students got ranked at number 22 in reading, moving one place up.

Study

The organization for economic co-operation and development (OECD) said that English 15 year olders performed average when it comes to science and reading, but possess poor math skills compared to other countries.

Singapore is ranked one in all three subjects among all the 72 countries that were surveyed. When it comes to the European countries, Estonia, Finland and Norway have performed better than UK in math.  Poland and Slovenia are also ranked above UK when it comes to reading.

PISA report highlights that there is a “relatively large gap” between top and bottom performers in British schools in the subjects such as science and math. It furthers explains that there is an eight year schooling gap between two groups of fifteen year olders.

Report has also revealed that there is a little gender gap in science. However, boys won the battle with girls by fetching 12 points higher in math while girls have beaten boys when it comes to reading. OECD have found the students who were born and raised in UK have achieved higher grades compared to their immigrant peers.

This report further say that white students have also performed better than the black and Asian students and white kids from low-income backgrounds could not beat the white kids from high-income backgrounds.

However, the PISA report also praised science teaching standards in UK and said that England has some of the finest young scientists in the world. According to the OECD, England does an expenditure of around $114,900 on a student from age of six to fifteen. It is higher compared to the average cumulative spending across OECD countries ($90,300) and more than the $75,300 across all 72 nations  that were included in the study.

UK students earned 509 in science, lower than last year’s 514, but this score is above the OECD average of 493. This way UK is matching footsteps with Germany and Netherlands and have slightly  better rankings than Switzerland, Ireland and Belgium.

Countries like Singapore, Japan, Estonia, Chinese Taipei and Finland are ranked above England.
