    Based on reputation Liverpool definitely outweighs Kent.

    However go to the open days for both and find which you prefer.

    Do you live in a cave?

    Kent is WAY higher than Liverpool and more prestige.

    Kent is 16.
    Liverpool 59.

    The same league table which ranks Sussex over Oxford and Cambridge for physical sciences.

    Liverpool from an international level is extremely more prestigious. They're a russell group for a reason.

    I dont but I have a few friends there and they like it (granted they do science subjects so it will be different)

    Go to both and check them out for yourself. However in terms of rank/prestige/international rep Liverpool is better.

    Surely they wouldn't have such a big gap if they were wrong about it.

    The Guardian is infamous for its bizarre league tables. Surrey and Lancaster are great unis but they don't come close to UCL and LSE (I have no bias here, haven't gone to any of these unis) I think this league table uses different criteria than the others which is why the results come out so bizarrely

    Your guess is as good as mine. Probably just pick names from a hat.
