    I'm choosing between QUB and TCD for business undergraduate, I really want a 1st and so I'm wondering is it harder to get a first in trinity because it's a better university or is it the same level of difficulty at queens?

    I think that getting a first in queens would be viewed better than a 2.1 in trinity, correct me if I'm wrong!

    Thanks guys!

    Both courses are going to be of equal difficulty, but it's the professors that are different. It's a well-known fact that very few people have come out of Trinity with a First and the type of people that go there are overly competitive and entitled.
    Queens is an absolutely brilliant uni with great staff, great atmosphere and (mostly) lovely people

    Getting a first anywhere, especially queens, would be always viewed better than a 2-1 at any other university, even Trinity.

    Good luck

    TCD awards about 16% Firsts.
    Queen's about 19%

    Not a huge difference.

    And Sawyer59 for Business Management specifically Queen's awards 10% Firsts.
