    I completely disagree with some of these present raking expecially some private universities rated above some of the state university.I’m not here to defend mine but those incharge should know that a university is not judge by the number of graduates produce and grades but effective teaching and researches conducted.why would a 2.1 of a private struggle to compete with 2.2 or a 3rd of public university.There is just two private(convenant and pan african university) others are just playing along.God help our educational system.
