Its of dream of every students to read in the number one university of the world, if not one of the top university of the world. But its a sad reality that every students cant afford to read in to those university, because of many constraints. Like prevous years, this year also Universities of Developed countries like USA, UK , Australia are in the top list of word universities ranking. Its a very sad reality that though  Six (6) fully functional university e.g. Tribhuvan University, Kathmandu University, Pokhara University, Purbanchal University, Nepal Sanskrit University, and Lumbini Buddha University, none of these are in top 500 list of universities.

Methods used for ranking

Universities are ranked by several indicators of academic or research performance, including alumni and staff winning Nobel Prizes and Fields Medals, highly cited researchers, papers published in Nature and Science, papers indexed in major citation indices, and the per capita academic performance of an institution. For each indicator, the highest scoring institution is assigned a score of 100, and other institutions are calculated as a percentage of the top score.

The distribution of data for each indicator is examined for any significant distorting effect; standard statistical techniques are used to adjust the indicator if necessary. Scores for each indicator are weighted as shown below to arrive at a final overall score for an institution. The highest scoring institution is assigned a score of 100, and other institutions are calculated as a percentage of the top score.
