India drops out of Top 300 World University Rankings 2020 list, Here is the list!

According to the latest Times Higher Education Rankings, India has dropped out from the top 300 World University Rankings 2020, with 56 entries this year. In the past few years, India has been the fifth most-represented nation with 49 entries earlier.

Surprisingly, India’s best represented University, the Indian Institute of Science Bangalore has dropped from the 251-300 margin to 301-350, due to a significant fall in its citation impact. Nonetheless, there were improvements made in research environment, teaching environment and industry income.

IIT Ropar made its debut in the ranking with a joint position of 301-350 with Indian Institute of Science Bangalore (IISc).

While some of the institutions remained steady with the rankings, around seven Indian Universities fell into a lower band this year. Institutions like IIT-Delhi, IIT Kharagpur and Jamia Millia Islamia have risen from their earlier positions.

With its 16th edition of Times Higher Education Rankings 2020, there are over 1,300 entries from 92 countries, making it the largest higher education analysis.

As per the Indian table, there was a jump in the number of entries from 49 to 56 this year.

According to THE, the best Indian institutions are generally characterised by relatively strong scores for teaching environment and industry income, but perform poorly when it comes to international outlook.
