      The scope of this survey is just Asia. Also, taking a closer look at the numbers and the methodology the survey seemed as flawed as ever. Consider that we ranked better than La Salle in every criterium (which includes other factors not shown here btw.) and yet they were able to outrank us. This will only be possible if La Salle outranks us in two factors by at the very least 200. Yet it seems impossible considering that in this two mentioned factors, Ateneo nor La Salle got in the top 100.

        But those are just subject ranks. If you study the tests closely, there are other tests like faculty rating, student satisfaction, premises evaluation etc. 🙂 Maybe they outscored us in all those other fields. 🙂 Ateneo boasts of prestige and premier education, not in latest facilities or the best learning experience or whatever naman eh. Let’s just wait for the complete top 500. 😀
