degree classification vs uni prestigeWatch
Student life, in partnership with UEA
1st’s and 2:1s are both nearly equally good grades so if you get a 1st at a worse uni and a 2:1 at a better uni, I’d go for the better uni e.g. a 1st from Coventry is not better than a 2:1 from queen mary. Pretty much anywhere where you’d get a 2:1/1st is better than anywhere you don’t.
