  • No one is sincer in Pakistan about quality education.It is just a business.
    After privatization in Bhutoo era it is in worst condition.
    We can only pray for better education in Pakistan with no hope in near future.

  • This list of pakistani universities is a big joke, we all know that some of these universities don’t even qualify to be a college, rather a university.

  • On ground reality Education and Health is just good business of richest…just go out and ask the ordinary public for ranking and quality of said universities…NO money No education for poor.

  • The National University of Computer and Engineering Sciences doesn’t not exist.
    it is The National University of Computer and Emerging Sciences

  • Pakistani Universities may be in top 100 but sadly the quality of teachers and standard of students qualifying is pretty poor. Campus politics is a bane.
