    These are a couple of years old but still interesting.

    I don't think it is very representative. It only tells us which country has an education system that prepares well for this test. There is a world of difference between passing a science exam and being able to use one's knowledge creatively to develop new products.

    Unfortunately there is no score for foreign languages, geography, history, and so on.
