Christ's College, Cambridge, has produced the best exam results of all Cambridge University colleges over the past two decades, according to a study by Peter Tompkins, who compiles the annual Tompkins table.

Christ's is followed by Clare and then King's at the top of the table, which awards points according to degree classifications. At the bottom is Magdalen, and just above it are New Hall (23rd) and Girton (22nd).
