Over 375,000 students sat for the 2020 West African Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE).
Our manifesto: This is what YEN.com.gh believes in
In a quest to attain higher education most secondary school leavers would look forward to attending some of the top universities in the country.
Some of these universities are, bigger and better than others and the quest for bragging rights as to which institution is better makes it more fun
In view of this, YEN.com.gh has decided to compile a list of the top five universities in Ghana to make the choices of these school leavers much easier.
The rankings are from the Webometrics Ranking of World Universities, compiled by the Spanish research group Cybermetrics Lab.
The research group belongs to the Consejo Superior de Investigaciones Científicas (CSIC), which is the largest public research body in Spain.
The key indices considering in generating this ranking were presence, impact, openness and the excellence ranks of the various tertiary institutions.
Below are the top 5 universities in Ghana:
1. University of Ghana
The University of Ghana is the oldest and largest university in Ghana. It is referred as the nation's first university. All the fun in the world can be found on this university campus.
Established in 1952, KNUST is one of the best universities in Ghana. The university is known for their interest in science and technology related courses.
3. University of Cape Coast (UCC)
The University of Cape Coast is located in the Central Region. The university offers over 210 programmes of study. Another name old student like to call the school is University of Constant Confusion or the University of Competitive Choice. Graduating from UCC in no joke at all.
4. University of Development Studies (UDS)
UDS has two campuses in Tamale and Wa. Most people know UDS as the university interested in agriculture.
5 .University of Education, Winneba (UEW)

Meanwhile, Dr Ayisha Baffoe-Ashun has shattered glass ceilings and has blazed the path for other women after it was reported that she had become the first-ever female PhD holder in Architecture.
She set this enviable record at Ghana's prestigious Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology in the Ashanti region of Ghana.
Dr Ayisha Ida Baffoe-Ashun formerly known as Ayisha Ida Haruna would hold her head up high as the primus inter pares and would look to see other exceptional women blaze the trail she has set.
