RECOGNIZING THE GLOBAL ELITE
Five Stars in all evaluated areas
Minimum of 900 points overall
A further critique of the ranking systems is that they are designed to say who is better than who, rather than how good you are and whether you have improved or regressed. For example, UCT could be 107 this year and make significant improvements such as recruiting more post-doctoral scholars and leading international scientists, increasing further its research articles and so on.
But if the university at position 110 has improved slightly more than UCT, the UCT will drop – though this will not reflect any deterioration. A better system would be to have categories – such as five-star, four star ratings with no limit on how many universities may qualify for five star rating if they meet the top-notch criteria.

Towards a global "Common Data Set"
NTU is undergoing rapid development and the current ranking from QS is a confirmation that NTU today has a high international standing. NTU is participating in a QS Star audit to establish our strengths as a university across a broader set of criteria than can be measured in any ranking system, to provide valuable information for our many stakeholders: students, employers, fellow academics as well as our local community.
