At last the ranking for IPTA have been published. It uses something like a hotel rating system. Only one, university made it to the second best list.

*start copy and paste**
And only one university - Universiti Sains Malaysia - made it into the second category of "Excellent"in the first ever university perception exercise in the country. It received a five-star ranking.

Universiti Malaya (UM), Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia (UKM), Universiti Putra Malaysia (UPM), Universiti Teknologi Mara (UiTM), Universiti Teknologi Malaysia (UTM) and Universiti Islam Antarabangsa (UIA) were lumped in the "Good" category. They had four stars.

Those in the Satisfactory list are Universiti Malaysia Pahang, Universiti Malaysia Sabah, Universiti Malaysia Terengganu, Universiti Malaysia Perlis, Universiti Malaysia Sarawak, Universiti Pendidikan Sultan Idris, Universiti Sains Islam Malaysia, Universiti Teknikal Malaysia Melaka, Universiti Tun Hussein Onn Malaysia and Universiti Utara Malaysia.

None fell in the "Less Satisfactory" or "Weak" categories.

**end copy and paste*

Please take note that news about this ranking is quite scarce although it is been announced by the Higher Education Minister on Friday.

What make university ranked as good? Its reputation isn't it? So ARES as a tool is fine. My only gripe is in the small number of replies, and it does not seem to include foreign/regional university. May be, it is a national ranking so national perception is the one that counts.

However, measure of objectivity need to be taken into account as well. The problem is in gathering the data. THES and other world ranking rely on information available on the web site, may be this is something that MOHE have to explore as well.

As for IPTS ranking, I just heard that they (nearly all except for major ones) have objected fiercely to this ranking system, as many seen the move kill their business (Very fierce lobbying is going on now, to ensure that MOHE do not release this data). From my understanding, it shows that from IPTS point of view greed is deemed higher values then academic reputation.
