These are the kinds of measures universities like Warwick without any significant achievements or resources excel in.
Skewing rankings since 1965.

(Original post by LutherVan)
Do you believe anyone thinks Surrey is a UK Top 10 university for the last 2 years?
Their students seem to be easily "satisfied". No work is done there???

(Original post by LutherVan)
No. Prestige is mostly decided by the achievements of a university.
Correct. Correct. and sets the pace for the undergrad courses.

(Original post by LutherVan)
If I create a university today in Scunthorpe and then state that minimum entry tariff is going to be A*A*A*A, that would not make my university prestigious? It is the prior achievements of my university that would make it prestigious.
More people should see this.

(Original post by LutherVan)
Apart from that, Warwick has no significant achievements for it to have any prestige close to the Golden Triangle, Edinburgh and Manchester.
Forgetting Bristol? https://www.ucl.ac.uk/ref2014/ref201...nsity-weighted
Cambridge
Oxford
Imperial (only science, helps with rankings)
UCL
Bristol
LSE (small proportion of a uni)

Durhams research is very average. Could not make top 10.
Warwick is not overall strong.
Exeter shouldnt be near that list
St Andrews is strange choice as well

Wouldn't have Durham behind KCL if I'm honest.

Switch Durham and KCL. Then switch St Andrews and Durham I would say.

I think people tend to give way too much credit to KCL if I'm being brutally honest. Durham I would put higher than KCL and St Andrews.

The difference between these universities is so thin that no order is "wrong". Some people have not even included Durham in their top ten. To me, that's unfair, but that's how some people perceive it.

I think the differences are bigger outside the G5 universities. Obviously in the grand scheme of things the differences aren't that great. It's very very subjective though
