    Edinburgh and St Andrews are neck and neck, really. Glasgow takes third. Not sure about the others.

    Rather inaccurate considering that Glasgow, Aberdeen, Stirling, Dundee and Heriot Watt all appear ahead of Strathclyde in almost every ranking system

    Strathclyde is by no means above Glasgow - at least in terms of brand. Top 3... St Andrews, Edinburgh, Glasgow... After that, Aberdeen, Robert Gordon, Heriot-Watt and Strathclyde.

    True, but strathclyde are best for engineering in Scotland and are number one for accounting in the uk. A lot of the time rankings don't mean anything because there are different rankings for different subjects.

    Irrelevant - Glasgow is top for degrees like Psychology and Dentistry... That doesn't mean it's better than Edinburgh.

    I take the point that rankings are ambiguous and subjective though.

    I never said Strathclyde is better than Glasgow though, I said it's better for engineering for which it is.

    It seems Dundee and Stirling appear highly ranked too
