Not just degrees, but the university too. Unis with lower entry requirements tend to be easier. It's common logic.(Original post by marco14196)
A first class in WHAT though? Not all degrees are created equal at the end of the day
I know of friends who had firsts at bottom of the ranking unis and some who had 2:1s at RG unis. The difference in standard of work for similar subjects was shocking.
Got a First Class Degree but a lot of my family are extremely jealous. What to do? Watch

So I recently received my results and was awarded an overall First class degree. I was expecting this and I fully deserved it for all my hard work and effort and I was proud and happy for it.
After telling all my cousins and family about it - a lot of them were noticeably very jealous. They were saying "Oh" or even not congratulating me and this really annoyed me and upset me. The people who I have done favours for and the people who I thought would share the same love and support I had for them - just did not seem happy for me. A lot of my school friends, however felt happy for me.
The thing is, this in itself has already put me off. If the people who I call family, are noticably jealous of my success, what do I do in the future when I get married, get my first house and also go through my worries in my life? I don't think they will support me in tough times if they can't even simply congratulate me! It is shocking.
I know people will say "forget them" or "you don't need them" - but that is easier said than done.
What should I do?
You have friends, they were happy, they'll be there for you, always happy with your progress.
