The un-official G5 is:

Oxbridge,IC,LSE,UCL

IMO Warwick can get into the G5 in the near future, replacing UCL.

If you're talking about reputation and league table standings, then you can get the information from a league table.

To be honest there is no such thing as the five best universities, it depends on your criteria and what you're looking for. I personaly think Warick and Durham are over rated especialy when it comes to down to research.

To me going to a university where the average student thinks outside of league tables and snobbery is more important than any percieved reputation by Guardian Readers who by Rover's because they think its posher than a Ford when actually they are just 10 year old cars with a different badge on.

What? I know plenty of Guardian readers who own Jaguars. I really don't get that one - a Rover 75 is much superior to any Ford, IMO.

I don't really like Rovers - the seats are not well designed, for me anyway.
Volvos are quite nice, but the acceleration leaves something to be desired. Jaguars are very good, and excllent value for money - compared to Mercedes or BMW. You get a lot more in a Jag than a Merc in terms of features as standard. Never been a fan of 4X4s myself, but the Ranger Rovers do look quice nice from the outside - a bit fuel hungry, however.
