Singapore primary school pupils rank No. 2 in global reading test
Primary 4 pupils in Singapore have emerged second out of 58 territories in an international test that measured how well they can read.
The results of the Progress in International Reading Literacy Study (PIRLS), released last month, also found that pupils here outperformed their peers in other countries in navigating online texts.
Singapore pupils came up tops - surpassing 13 other territories and countries, including the US - in the online task, where they answered questions related to information on the Web.
