Pisa results show progress, Ministry of Education says

Nearly two thirds of UAE schools included in the Programme for International Student Assessment (Pisa) have shown progress in mathematics, the UAE’s Ministry of Education said on Tuesday.

The 7.5 point increase in average maths scores was hailed as “remarkable” by the government, that said it remains committed to entering the worldwide top 20 in the next round of assessments — which will take place in 2021.

The UAE has participated in the rankings since 2009 and they are taken seriously by the government. Last year, pupils across the UAE sat ‘mock’ Pisa tests in an effort to prepare them for the assessments.
