Rankings are seductive, simple and sometimes pretty exciting methods to chart the quality of institutes for higher education. On the basis of a number of parameters is each institute awarded a score. One's ranking position is largely subject to the chosen parameters, the weight attributed, the statistical method used to process this data, and the reliability of the source data. For example, by changing the parameters or attributing a different weight to them, one can easily wipe the floor with any ranking. The global score however is only slightly relevant for individual output in research or education; for spearheads of research within the university, or for its scale.

Surprise candidate - Chandigarh's Panjab University continues its dream run for a second year straight, scoring ahead of IITs to stand in the bracket.
