These Are The Top 10 Countries With The Most Efficient Education Sectors, 2018

Unsurprisingly, China’s education system is the most efficient in the world, based on the expenditure on education per capita and results on the PISA and GMAT tests. Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA) is a very influential international assessment administered by the OECD.

In the first place is China. It achieves 209 points more on the two tests (PISA & GMAT) than expected. Rounding out the top five are Vietnam, Singapore, Georgia, and Poland. Poland’s performance is exceptional given per capita income ($27,764) that is significantly below its OECD peers.
