The latest international student assessment from the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development has placed Georgia in the bottom eight of 79 countries, ranking alongside Kazakhstan and Panama.
The result is found in the 2018 Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA). Released on Tuesday, the ranking presents results of tests on about 600,000 students aged 15 in 79 states across the world.
Published every three years, the report follows a series of tests that students sit in volunteering countries or regions to identify their knowledge and skills in reading, mathematics and science. The test aims to identify what knowledge the students have as well as how they can use it for comprehension or finding solutions to scientific challenges.
The national average score for Georgian students in reading was identified at 380, placing the country between Kazakhstan (387) and Panama (377), with the top-ranked Chinese provinces of Beijing, Shanghai, Jiangsu and Zhejiang at 555.
