    Cambridge is still better. TBH those rankings look pretty dubious - Harvard at 6th, for instance?

    A lot of people say Cambridge is better than Oxford, then again I wouldn't know. On Russell group I see Cambridge as top for most courses.

    A lot of people also say Oxford is better than Cambridge so that's really irrelevant.

    There are more Cambridge people on TSR so obviously TSR favours Cambridge.

    Oxford has topped Cambridge on The Compete University Guide in the past, and Oxford has been above Cambridge on THE every year since its foundation. It was also No 1 globally on that French employment table.

    Wikipedia also said Oxford is No 1 in the UK on that table of CEOs and No 1 among top employers.

    Yeah that's true. Personally if I had a chance to go to one of them I wouldn't really mind I consider both as good and prestigious as each other.
