We studied the 9th grade science achievements, focusing on Biology, of Lao students in Vientiane capital, Lao People's Democratic Republic (Lao PDR, or Laos). Our survey-using selected questions on Biology from Trends in International Mathematics and Science Study (TIMSS) 2011-was conducted in February 2015 on a total of 388 9th grade students from 3 lower secondary schools (3 districts in Vientiane capital). We analyzed the average correctness of Lao students, and compared them with Japanese and average of all OECD countries. We found that a school with less ideal educational condition in the Outskirts Zone of the Vientiane Capital scored lower points comparing to the Urban schools. Also, it seems that science education in Laos focuses more on Reasoning skills than Knowledge or Application skills.
