Berry Berry Easy will be publishing the “biased” list of Top Public University in Malaysia (IPTA). Every list that are published usually will have its own detractors and admirers. So, do not read too much into the ranking of this list. It’s totally unscientific and based upon the perception of the Berry Berry Team.(And yes, we do know that USM is the only APEX university in Malaysia. Yet, most published world rankings put UM above USM. )

Berry Berry Easy would also like to inform the public on the nature of such lists. It is often that the overall ranking of a university do not reflect the quality of the individual schools/faculty. So it is best if students who are interested in registering a specific course take note of the individual faculty ranking rather than the overall university ranking. (For example: A top ranked school might not have not have a better faculty of engineering as compared to a middle range university’s faculty of engineering). Also, the metric used to gauge a university might not be agreeable between from person to person. Most list weighs heavily on research excellence, but students might be more interested in quality of teaching alone. So take list with a pinch of salt and enjoy our Berry Berry List. We hope to spark some discussion on the comments section with this list.
