    Hey Guys;

    Well, I am giving myself a headache here (have been trying for hours) and am having no luck finding percentage pass rates in other countries for subjects.

    By this I mean, you can find the GCSE pass rates of subjects no problem but, trying to find them for other countries like China, Japan, Finland etc... It is a nightmare...

    Can anyone help please?

    Also, I don't mean PISA or anything like that, actual percentages would be very helpful please...

    Thanks.

    The various countries are using various statistics for calculating the student's communication skills and it is very different also.The education plays an important role in everyone life.
    I know, that's what the work I'm doing is based on.
    Comparing teaching methods and the results obtained. Main reason I'm doing Finland is because they do virtually no exams before they are 14, have fewer school hours, virtually no homework and yet still do better than the UK.

    Japan, China and South Korea however are the complete opposite. =l

    Hence why I am looking for the stats.

    http://www.oecd.org/edu/education-at...e-19991487.htm Is probably your best option for getting data that is roughly comparable.

    Most countries have their high school exams at 18 not 16 so finding GCSE equivalents isn't easy.

    That's the one I've been thinking off. Completely forgot it despite using it :') it is a good one.

    GCSEs do not exist in other countries.

    In addition, many probably don't have exams at 16 but only 18.

    Saying that, I would try the OECD, they have a lot of data.
