Who's Interested in the QS World University Rankings?
And here are the first ten results (excluding this blog and the QS page) from a Google search for this year's QS world rankings. Compare with ARWU and RUR. Does anyone notice any patterns?
The QS rankings are so flawed, misleading and biased in favor of UK universities, and I think the list should be ignored completely. Use the Shanghai ranking table instead.
Shanghai ranking table is another funny ranking. King Abdolaziz University is in top 10 in mathematics. What a joke!!!
But agree, QS is also shit.
I think people should just ignore this ranking. There are too many flaws. Even the citations per faculty is flawed since it favors smaller departments full of deadwood professors. Just look at the subject rankings and how ridiculous they are.
