The Singapore Education System
Singapore consistently ranks at the top in international testing.
Singapore students rank highly when it comes to “global competencies” needed to live in an interconnected and changing world, according to the results from the Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA). PISA is a triennial OECD study that examines and compares how well education systems are helping their students acquire the knowledge and skills essential for full participation in modern societies. It assesses the capacity of 15-year-old students to apply knowledge and skills in Reading, Mathematics and Science, and to analyse, reason and communicate effectively as they solve problems in a variety of real-life situations.Students from a total of 66 education systems answered questionnaire items relating to global competence. Based on their mean scores, the Singapore students came out tops, beating second-placed Canada, with Hong Kong, Scotland and Taiwan rounding up the Top 5.
The Trends in International Mathematics and Science Study (TIMSS) takes place once every four years, and tests students at the grade four and grade eight levels. These are equivalent to Primary 4 and Secondary 2 here in Singapore respectively. The test was administered by the International Association for the Evaluation of Educational Achievement, a non-profit research cooperative based in Amsterdam. At both levels and for both subjects, Singapore students came out on top in 2019, beating students from other East Asian territories like Hong Kong, South Korea, Taiwan and Japan.
