The rankings are decided by the results of the so-called PISA tests, which are taken by 15 year-olds from more than 70 countries.

The tests, by the Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA), form the world's biggest international education survey.

They are held once every three years and test students on their maths, reading and science skills.

In 2012 Wales’ results were worse than all other parts of the UK and below the PISA average.

The results for 2015 will be published at 10am.
