Where is our Malaysian University?

Below is the latest Times Higher Education-QS World University Rankings top 200 published today in The Times of London and guess what, Malaysia universities are not even listed. What an embarrassment. What happen to our USM, the so called Apex University formerly ranked 111st in year 2005. What about University Malaya, who were at 89th place in 2004 and then 169th in 2005 and 192nd in 2006...

In other countries every university will strive for excellence but not for Malaysian Universities. We never believe in the Times Higher Education survey.

This is what I call the denial syndrome of Malaysia Boleh...
