    Where Oxbridge/LSE/UCL/Imperial would constitute the top tier?

    Both Kings and QMUL are shocking though. I know of two accounts people getting into an AAA course with ABB and BBB to Kings. Likewise someone from TSR got into an AAB course at QMUL with BBC. I have no idea why QMUL is in the Russell Group and KCL is literally piggybacking on it's past legacy.

    I think rankings in general are arbitrary and really apart from the top 5 (Oxbridge, UCL, Imperial and LSE) there's a marginal difference in quality of teaching between the other RGs. I'll give credits to Birmingham though, they've really improved in the last few years. Leeds is terrifically underrated as well.

    According to QS univeristy rankings, the complete university guide and times league table, Birmingham ranks higher than both Bristol and nottingham. Don't know what made you say otherwise.
