NUST Was Ranked The Top University In Pakistan But LUMS Walay Aren't Happy

By Sana Yasmeen | 11 Dec, 2019

NUST and LUMS are both respected names

To be among the list of top-ranked educational institutes of Asia is something to feel really proud about and that is exactly how we felt upon finding out that NUST has secured its position in the top 100 Asian universities. Although this news established a sense of achievement in people, they still had some questions.

 

NUST has retained and climbed four spots in the Asia Top University Ranking 2020!

The ranking of these universities is done by determining ten indicators; academic and employee reputation, faculty-student ratio, citation per paper, paper per faculty, staff with Ph.D., internationalization and a few others.

In the past three years, NUST has managed to climb its way up to 29 positions and is, thus, now standing at the 83rd spot in the list.

 

Now, because NUST and LUMS have an unofficial rivalry over which is more “prestigious” so people also questioned this ranking

Well….

 

People started coming up with explanations about why NUST was but LUMS wasn’t ranked among the top universities

Well, This makes sense tho!

 

Of course, this NUST vs LUMS question also brought out some LUMS haters

 

Students of LUMS were blamed to be more interested in extracurricular affairs than their education

Huh? Aren’t universities supposed to raise holistic people and not just bookworms?

 

Quite a few people were also critical of LUMS because its students were actively involved in the recent Student Solidarity March

People came up with the explanation that since the students were seemingly involved in activism than purely academic endeavors that could have caused LUMS to not be among the top 100 universities.

 

People began dragging relatively famous names from LUMS

‘Tis nothing but a saazish’!

 

Some people also wondered about the ranking of IBA in the list

Exactly, sirf LUMS and NUST hee nahi reh gaye Pakistan mein.

Although, It’s great news to have NUST among the top 100 universities of Asia, the rankings also don’t always reflect exactly how a university can contribute in your learning. So to make your choice, it’s best to do your research, kids.
