Since COVID-19 has hit the entire world, we have not come across any good news that leaves an everlasting impression of the country. Pakistan has always strived hard to make its presence noticeable in the world.

With its scenic beauty to its welcoming people, the world is now looking at a different country picture. Many foreigners had paid a visit to the country and helped portray an entirely another side of Pakistan.

Not only that, Pakistan has now been able to excel in the field of education. With numerous accomplishments attained by the intelligent youth of the country, Pakistan has become immensely popular for its talent.

Good news filled the air when sixteen universities of Pakistan came in Top Asia’s University Ranking. Top Ranking Asia reveals the best colleges and universities around Asia, including institutions from thirty territories.

Thirty countries participated, including Japan, China, South Korea, Pakistan, Saudi Arab, United Arab Emirates, Hong Kong, Singapore, Taiwan, India, Israel, Macao, Qatar, Iran, Malaysia, Iran, Lebanon, Brunei Darussalam, Jordan, Turkey, Sri Lanka, Philippines.

The ranking system uses the same thirteen performance indicators used to rank top universities in the world. Moreover, these indicators include the reputation of the university, number of staff, number of exchange students, and reputation of employees, number of Ph.D. holders, research papers, number of international students, citations per paper, and number of international faculty.

Following is the list of sixteen universities that secured a position in the Asia Ranking.

Japan led the Asia Ranking with 116 universities, while China came second with 91 universities. India secured the third position for most representation in the ranking with 63 universities.

Hong Kong had the most representation in the top ten of the Asia Ranking, with three universities securing different ranks.

Students can now apply to universities within Asia since many institutes within Asia offer excellent quality education. Instead of applying to universities in Europe or America, students who wish to study abroad can consider universities of Hong Kong and Japan, as they are equally the best.

However, Pakistan still needs to work hard to move up in the ranking. The first university that secured a position was in the hundreds, and the following university was between 200-300. The country needs to focus on the quality of education and the performance level to ace the listing.
