SPAIN’S maths skills have been ranked bottom of the class in a recent education survey carried out across Europe.
The study, carried out by the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), tested adults between the ages of 16 and 65 on their mathematics, reading and comprehension skills,
Spanish participants fared the worst out of all participants in the numerical section, and were second bottom on the literacy test, just beating the Italian participants.
The poor scores puts the country 23 points behind the European average across the board.
The gap between Spain and the high scorers, which included Finland, Holland and Sweden, is so wide their high school participants received similar or higher scores than Spanish undergraduates.
