Why are we not surprised? On September 29 2009, I blogged about the top 30 universities in Asia and the ranking of our own institutions which begs only one question. Why are our people still in denial that we are the best when we are not. Now comes more revelations. Despite the fact that University of Malaya and Universiti Teknology Malaysia showed some improvement over the 2008 ranking, there is still no cause for celebration as we are ranked in the top 300. Yes, top 300 not top 30. With this, can we see a correlation in the unemployment figures [see below] which happens to be a government response to MP William Leong in Parliament recently?
