The second slot is obtained by Japan with 19 universities which is followed by South Korea with 13 institutions could get their names included. IISc Bangalore has turned out to be the Top Ranked Institute of India which has secured 37th slot in Asia’s 100 Top Universities. IISc Bangalore has replaced Panjab University for No 1 Position.

It is a cause of concern that India has lost ground in rankings. Three institutions which made it to the 100 top universities last year have failed to make slot this time. said Rankings Editor Phil Baty.

He also praised China for making improvement in the field of education. He has asked other nations to follow the China’s Educational policy.
