The 2022 World University Rankings include more than 1,600 universities across 99 countries and territories, making them the largest and most diverse university rankings to date.

The table is based on 13 carefully calibrated performance indicators that measure an institution’s performance across four areas: teaching, research, knowledge transfer and international outlook.

This year’s ranking analyzed more than 108 million citations across over 14.4 million research publications and included survey responses from almost 22,000 scholars globally. Overall, about 430,000 data points from more than 2,100 institutions were collected.

Institut Polytechnique de Paris is the highest new entry at 95th place, following a merger of five institutions.

The US is the most-represented country overall with 183 institutions, and also the most represented in the top 200 (57), although its share of universities in this elite group is falling.

Mainland China now has the joint fifth-highest number of institutions in the top 200 (up from joint seventh last year), overtaking Canada and on a par with the Netherlands.

Six new countries featured in the table compared with last year: Azerbaijan, Ecuador, Ethiopia, Fiji, Palestine and Tanzania.

Harvard University tops the teaching pillar, while the University of Oxford tops the research pillar and Macau University of Science and Technology leads the international pillar.

Overall, 1,662 universities are ranked. A further 452 universities are listed with “reporter” status, meaning that they provided data but did not meet the eligibility criteria to receive a rank.

Taifa St. Dominic R/C 1 Basic School introduces the Learners to the national electoral processes

The election committee of Taifa St. Dominic R/C 1 Basic school, has for the second time introduced learners to the General Voting System on the 20th May, 2022.

The school located in the Abokobi Municipality in the Greater Accra Region, since its establishment, has been using the folding of papers and other forms to elect their school Prefects.

The electorates (learners) went through the necessary voting procedures laid out by the Electoral Commission to elect their Prefects.

The chairman of the elections committee of Taifa St. Dominic R/C 1 Basic, Mr. David Otchere in an exclusive interview with the media said that, the idea is to prepare learners for the voting system.

He went further to say that, he doesn’t like the rate at which electorates spoil ballot papers during national elections. He thinks this is because they do not get any eye opening of the electoral process. It is his wish to see an election of no spoilt ballot during National Elections.

He also added that,  this move will help the learners  to exercise their franchise with ease. He took the opportunities to educate learners on the importance of election.
