Has the Sunday Times University Guide been published today in newspaper form? The league tables seems to have changed on their website so I presume it has been updated for this years tables. Has anyone bought a copy of the Sunday Times today?

Oh bugger. Yet another round of pre uni students wondering if they're accurate, insecure undergrads defending their institution and the age old mantra of "they're all ********" falling on the deaf ears of prestige whores. :sigh:

Oh the Sunday Times league table. Brilliant. I wonderd how long it would take before someone created the thread and it's no suprise it was you, Mr Hereford.

I particularly like the head teacher ranking (who are, in my opinion, completely out of touch with higher education). Let's place a university 40th this year then 15th the next.....

Does the actual newspaper edition of the league table have all the extra tables, such as lowest drop-out rate, most middle class, etc.?

Additionally, I've just noticed the PDF format lists most middle class as classes 1, 2, and 3, while the most working class is from 4, 5, 6, and 7. What rankings for class are they using?

I thought it was A, B, C1, C2, D, and E?

How do some unis have negative dropout rates? Do more students graduate than those who enrol?

That was The Times one, wasn't it? They publish two different ones: The Times and The Sunday Times.

The ABC1 etc classification is the NRS classification. It was used in market research but has become increasingly criticised.

I know that in the 2001 Census the government/National Statistics used a different system (NS-SEC).

http://www.ons.gov.uk/about-statisti...ons/index.html

I think this is becoming the standard classification. I've seen it used more often than the old NRS anyway.
