S’poreans disown NUS as it failed to clinch 1st place world uni rankings

Posted on 27 September 2015

12th position? Why not you just close down?


Singaporeans from all walks of life, who believe in the power of education, have disowned NUS — Singapore’s supposedly only premier university — after it failed to clinch top position for the umpteenth time.

This after NUS was ranked 12th in the annual World University Rankings this year.

It was ranked 22nd last year.

One disappointed junior college student, Hen Yong Kong, said: “I didn’t spend so much money on tuition to end up studying in a university ranked 12th in the world.”

His sentiments were shared by others who are motivated to be only the best of the best.

Another Singapore, Kua Tak Kiu, said: “How would Manchester United feel if it finished the league at 12th position?”

However, not all is doom and gloom.

Hen Seow Zhang, an ex-NUS student said: “At least NUS beat NTU. NTU is languishing at 13th position. They might as well just close down.”
