Malaysian Higher Education: assessment?

We would like to see improvement in the standard of  higher education and we aviod blowing our own trumpet. Minister Datuk Seri Idris Jusoh insists on our universities being at par with those of advanced countries. He goes for favourable statistics. For instance, he quoted Quacquarelli Symonds World University Rankings with University of Malaya (UM) at number 151. He forgets other systems such as one of the most prestigious Shanghai Transport University Rankings: UM gets better from 401-500 in 2011 to 301-400 in 2014. Other local universities are not in the list of 500 Universities.
