SINGAPORE – Singapore has done it again, topping the biggest global school rankings published by the OECD (Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development). Asian countries took the top five spots; African countries were at the bottom.

The analysis, based on test scores in maths and science in 76 countries, is a much wider map of education standards than the OECD’s Pisa tests, which focus on more affluent industrialised countries. The latest Pisa test in 2012 polled 65 countries and regions.
