Why would any student put no on their student satisfaction for the rankings? Watch

    Hi

    I was just wondering why anyone would put anything but yes for the student satisfaction report. It makes no sense. If you put that you are satisfied then the percentage of satisfied students for the uni would go up and the uni would go higher in the rankings meaning the students have a more valuable degree and to any employers that are looking at the rankings, their employment prospects would go up. Saying no seems almost to be like shooting yourself in the foot.

    Thanks

    People probably feel some sort of responsibility to tell the truth, and so wouldn't put 10/10 for every section.

    Especially the students who had issues with the university will want to get 'revenge'.

    However, it's pretty pointless. As you said, if you lie and give your university top marks, then your university goes up in the rankings and your degree is worth more.

    Exactly. I mean seeing uni's with such low satisfaction and knowing that the students are causing this makes no sense to me whatsoever
