Easier due to inflated tuition fees causing grade inflation.

students have more resources then ever, its extremely easy to tread water at university the minimum quality is now lower then ever as unis dont want to hard fail anyone. Additionally the quality expectation of top students has stayed the same despite the mammoth of resources available, and admin is exceptionally easy nowadays (we take for granted pdf's the way the internet has gone, everything digitalised and backed up....

As well as just performing ok pretty much gets you a 2.1. Its actually hard to not get this...

You can easily find stats that show that course which gave 5-10% firsts 20 years ago now give 30, 40 % firsts, and in most institutions the 3rd class degree has basically disappeared. Students have not got 3x “better” in that time. At the same time, dropout rates and the number of “good” degrees get factored into league tables, therefore there is major pressure to game the system a bit from university management.
