4: Chinese students’ average GRE math scores rank top in the world.
The statement is true. Although I personally performed badly in mathematics at school, many of my peers were very talented in this subject. Look at the recent global GRE or GMAT scores, and you will see that Chinese students regularly do better than other nationalities in similar tests.
Also, China boasts high-quality elementary math education. According to a story in the British newspaper The Guardian, some primary schools in the UK will start using Shanghai’s math textbooks this September. “China’s wealthy cities, including Shanghai and Beijing, produce some of the world’s top-performing math pupils,” the report said.
To this statement, seven of the eight participants answered “true.” Only Vladimir from Belarus said he was not sure.
