South Korea topped the OECD list, with 32 per cent of students in the country studying in a scientific field.

Germany ranked second with 31 per cent and Sweden came third with 28.

Finland and France occupied fourth and fifth place with 28 and 27 per cent respectively.
Meanwhile, Estonia landed in seventh place, while also being declared a champion in gender equality in the field, with a whopping 41 per,cent of Estonian scientists being female.
Mexico, Austria and Portugal also made the cut, with 25 per cent of the population opting for the science and research field.
