    This is the league tables for "economics " As you can see Oxford and Warwick are first and second this is fair enough but then we got a tad bit lower.

    Yes you saw it too LSE is apparently 13th. Now I'm no genius But come on the London School of ECONOMICS yeah ok... has been beaten by a few unknown unis such as UEA. I would not base your uni choices from their list.

    Any thoughts on their rankings?

    Guardian Rankings are not to do with prestige but to do with student experience. If you go to LSE you probably will get a better job than someone from UEA, but you might not have as good a time or lecturers who are as good at teaching at UEA.

    It would be interesting to know how they determine their "Guardian Score/100".

    League tables can be unreliable at the best of times. Outside of the top 5 most of the next 40 odd yo-yo every year anyway.
