PUTRAJAYA: Malaysian students are improving in Mathematics, Reading and Science under the Programme for International Student Assessment (Pisa) 2015.

According to the results released by the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD), Malaysia scored 446 in Mathematics, 431 in Reading and 443 in Science, an improvement from 2012 when it was 421, 398 and 420 respectively.

The global average score is 490 in Mathematics and 493 for both Reading and Science.

Pisa is administered by the OECD every three years on 15-year-olds in both OECD and non-OECD countries and offers students questions in the main language of instruction in their countries.

Each round focuses on one area from Reading, Mathematics or Science.

The assessments have been conducted since 2000, with Malaysia taking part for the first time in 2009.
