Sheffield beat its local rivals comfortably, with Leeds coming in 7th, York down in 37th and Hallam not featuring in the league table.

Endcliffe Fresher Heather Mackay disagreed with the rankings, telling The Tab: “although Sheffield’s a decent place to be, it’s a bit depressing if there’s nowhere better than this.” But as Maths first year Sarah Andrew pointed out: “we know we’re better than Hallam, and that’s all that matters.”
