Press/Media: Expert Comment

Description

Australia must raise the ATAR score for those wanting to study education if it is to catch up in the international education stakes, advocates say. On Wednesday a chorus of concerned parents could be heard across the nation as the results from the triennial Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA) showed Australia recorded one of the sharpest falls in performance of any country. Australia ranked 16th in reading, 29th in maths and 17th in science, while China dominated the top spots, followed by a strong performance from Singapore.
