Singapore students have consistently brought pride to the nation through excellence in education. They have fairly regularly emerged tops in the Maths Olympiad. That has made many institutions, including those the U.S., adopt the Singapore model / syllabus for Mathematics.
Yesterday, they brought further cheer to Singapore when its students were ranked as the best in the world.
In fact, according to a report from the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), the top five places went to students from Asia – with Hong Kong, South Korea, Japan and Vietnam following Singapore.
Well done, Singapore! This is another milestone for Singapore, now focused on becoming the world’s first Smart Nation!
