Teenagers in England are ‘significantly above average’ in terms of their problem-solving skills, according to the results of international tests. Following a slew of disappointments in international school tests, the latest global rankings from the OECD put England in 11th place overall and second only to Finland in Europe in tests of how pupils can apply their knowledge. The problem-solving tests, which examine how well teenagers can use their knowledge in practical questions, were taken at the same time as the Pisa tests, which compare pupils’ performance in maths, reading and science.
