    LSE is worse than Imperial in every single possible measure, yet still manages to rank above it for like the third or fourth year in a row

    http://st.hitcreative.com/education/...ndex/year/2015 <= the year before
    http://st.hitcreative.com/education/...ndex/year/2014 <= (and although it looks identical on the main page) the year before that

    Because they have better 'grad prospects' and 'graduating with good honours' by about 2% on the full table, which happens to make LSE be 2 points higher than Imperial.

    Last year it was because they had a higher green score, ffs. No one cares about that when they select unis. Every other metric had them lower...
    Green score isn't included in the ranking calculation - it's only published in the tables

    gg fam
    See the table here: http://www.thecompleteuniversityguid...s/methodology/

    Complete apply a subject mix adjustment to 5 of the metrics (Entry standards, Student Satisfaction, Grad prospects, Student staff ratio and good honours) to adjust for universities not offering the intensive/skewing subjects like medicine/dentistry etc.
