How common is it for students to and for universities to accept results from the first year from one university as alternative entry requirements to another university? This could be for example, a 2:1 from the first year at Liverpool is an alternative to A*AA for entering into the first year of Manchester.

Unis usually still want to see A level grades that match their entry requirements.
There isnt a direct '2i = AAA A levels' or whatever ,equivalent - different qualifications and not a national system.
Just because you got a good first year result at one Unis doesnt mean you get entrance to the course at another.

All you can do is email each Uni and ask., but prepare yourself for No.

I also want to know is this common practice or is it something that universities don't like people to know?

Transfers are fairly uncommon. Transfer where the applicant doesn't meet the AL (or equivalent) entry requirements for the course are even more uncommon.

As above, you can ask, but in the majority of cases you'll get a polite no.

I would just repeat what is in post #2 of this thread tbh. Uni’s don’t like doing this and you’d be fortunate to find somewhere that does. You can approach them and ask.

What does it matter what people think of it?
All that matters is whether unis will accept it or not.
As stated it isn’t particularly common but you can only ask the unis in question whether they will or not.
I wouldn’t recommend using it as the plan. You’d be better off resitting a-levels and getting into the course as normal or looking for foundation years.
