    The numbers don't lie. Kudos to the countries on the list! Are the PISA tests also a good predictor of a country's future GDP? Do you foresee a shift in the world economy?

    These scores were actually depicted, and not an average. If it were to be a complete average, the UK would be 6th, Belgium 5th, Sweden 4th, China 3rd, Japan 2nd and South Korea 1st. However, I would like to point out that the UK would actually triumph all from an educational standpoint, not score point, because of the universities, English and Maths scores (which are now out of date) and also the amount of funding plunged into it.

    singaporean education is way ahead than other countries. like for example, at grade 9 they would be studying lessons for grade 10+ in other countries. so Im not surpirsed that they came first in the list lol.(my school uses singaporean education and it is considered to be one of the hardest school in my area, its difficult but I'm pretty much used to it 😂🤣)

    The reason the US as the richest country on earth isnt in the top ten is the same reason why rich people's kids fail in school: They become complacent because of their parents' success and feel entitled that things will be handed to them. They're no longer hungry. This is why kingdoms rise and fall.

    Really sorry, but US needs to be a bit more humble... must admit, most Asian countries are doing better than the US in this day and age, in many different sectors, they can’t always think they are ahead of everything. At the same time, US is a formidable country which excels in many different areas, however, it’s not 1950, US is not the best in everything

    Although East Asians have the highest IQ in the world, their traditional education teaches them that they can't be different, otherwise they will be excluded from their peers in companies or schools. So Chinese, Koreans and Japanese, they are always unable to create new inventions.

      East Asians do have higher AVERAGE iq than white people. However white people have higher variance(refresh your statistic knowledge) in iq which means that there will be more genius from white race, who will actually contribute to scientific discovery and innovation. In summary, Avg East Asian IQ>Avg White People IQ, Number of genius from East Asians < Number of genius from White People.

    The data should exclude city states like Hong Kong and Singapore. It wouldn't be fair to include those tiny cities in the statistics because obviously students at a large city would score better marks compared to the national average.
