    The criteria on which the tables are based is vastly different...

    Suday Times - Based on relevant information that seems logical.
    Times - Based on utter crap to allow them to fiddle with the tables to fit with thier own views.

    definitely sunday. Or the guardian online league table is good simply because it allows you to work out your own list based on the criteria thats best for you. eg. if university reputation is most important for you, you can click on that and have them lined up in order of rep.

    Sunday times.
    btw guardians actual rankings are a joke, Bath below 20th if i remember correctly.
    Not an admirer of bath but i think it deserves a bit more than that.

    I guess it depends on what criteria you regard as being most important. They can be wildly different. For example, when I was researching georaphy courses in September, I was looking at LSE for geography, the Times placed them at number 2 for the course, the Guardian placed them in 28th! Thats a difference of 26 places!

    The Sun us aimed at people with reading ages between 8 and 11. The sentences are deliberately short and monosyllabic to make it easier to read. It is also the most popular newspaper in this country, which gives a worrying refelction of the intelligence and education of most adults in this country.

    I was being a little sarcastic - I don't like that paper much either. But a lot of the times I'd rather read it than The Times, which is a boring paper which shows worryingly that some people have no life - where are those celeb. pictures?

    What is sad is that people actually buy magazines just to look at pictures of celebrities - they are normal people! they are not interesting at all! At least The Times deals with issues that matter and actually have an impact on the world and at least its readers have more intelligence than a mentally deficient stag beetle!

    I agree. That said , it seems people can't have enough of these celebs. I've never heard of a celeb. reality show being used as the main prime time programme at the christmas period before ( posh & becks ITV)
