Depends on what the basis of the downgrade was and what exam we're talking about.

Thats not "downgrading", its moderation and what happens to everyone (not just you) with super high marks if the university thinks its out of line with a sensible distribution. Odds are the university gave too much help / extra time / shifted rapidly to open note exams etc due to Covid to make sure the class didnt all fail and now they have to tweak the marks down a fair bit or everyone gets a 1st - even the tail end who deserve a 3rd. Its why your results always have a "provisional" tag attached until the examiners meeting and there is probably a lot of it going round right now, you still nail a good 1st so well done.
