Apart from Oxbridge, the majority of them are just mediocre. A lot of them hand out offers on the easy end of the achievement scale like AAB and even ABB. So why are they considered the best when they're nothing special?
Why are Russell Group universities so revered? Watch

as far as i knew, they are a collection of the uk's best universities for research, or 'research intensive universities' as they are called
i didnt think aab or abb is particuarly easy to achieve, i would have said either are good/better than average resultsLast edited by bloomblaze; 28-12-2010 at 23:21.

Fact is, the "Russell group" is little more a collective voice for the purpose of lobbying now, it means little as a signifier of academic quality.
You have Bath university not in it, and you have Liverpool university still in it. Times changes, as does standards and qualities, but the membership has not.
