The criteria of coming up with the national universities in the world is not also very accurate. A variety of reasons can be attributed to that, which may include; differing education system and their many numbers in the world. In the list there are many national universities which have not been mentioned .the fact is that to contact research in finding out the best national schools is not an easy task and the results which are made may not necessarily mean that the schools appearing above are actually the best. There needs to be established a universal criteria of studying the schools to determine their qualifications for the listing on the world chart of the best schools.
