So let's say I get a first in first year but I'm at a pretty mediocre uni, would it be possible to switch to a better uni as a second year student on the same degree? Has anyone done this?

It's common but it's competitive. It depends on your application but also the uni's transfer policies so I would research more about the specific uni you want to go to policies

Possible but by no means guaranteed. Depends on each Uni and each course. I wouldn’t make any plans assuming it was going to be possible.

It has been done but there are no guarantees your chosen new uni will allow it - your first step should be to email their Admissions and explain what you are hoping to do and what your academics are (your A levels plus grades so far in your current course).

Generally for transfer into second year you would need to also meet the standard entry requirements for first year.

It’s more common for students to transfer into first year using their first year marks to supplement lower A level results.
