Which country has the smartest kids?

Every 3 years the Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA) provides an evaluation of educational systems worldwide based on tests taken by 15-year-olds in maths, reading and science.

The next results will be due for release in December 2019 with Asian countries expected to dominate once again.

The tests aim to be more than just an assessment of each child's ability to remember information. They aim to evaluate how well they can apply what they learn in school to real-life situations. The tests also include an element of collaboration.

If you're feeling clever you can try some questions.

They are not perfect though and the results throw up just as many questions as answers, causing debates within governments around the world.

The numbers in the white circles are the aggregate score for the top ranking countries in 2015.
