Durian Daily 18: Academic Ranking of World Universities

It is unlikely that the local media will report the national's university ranking done by the reputable Shanghai Jiaotong University. Well, the survey of this Chinese University is probably unbiased given that their nation's best university ranked out of the top 150 range.

Now, for the shocking news, Singapore's top univeristy, NUS is not within the top 20 or even within the top 100, out of 500 universities world-wide. USA dominates the top places in the world-wide rankings, while Japan topped the Asian region.

I think they knew it already, just that they are too embarrassed to announce it. They have to wait till someone rank them top 10, then they tell the whole nation.

does that mean that.. most locals will end up in polys in the future, since it is viewed as an equally competent institution?
