The perception of hardness or easiness of a subject is a very individual issue.

Even if 2 unis had very similar courses on accounting, one might have a bit more maths or one might have a few more essays. If you are good maths, you will say the essay one is harder.

One might have 9 am lectures, and the other 2 pm, and you are a morning person.

Etc

no theyre just a bunch of dropkicks that's why it's hard for them
Better to be dropkicks than dropped-on-our-heads :awesome: (mods pls don't ban, she started it)

But yes, on average it seems to be easier to get higher marks at UNSW compared to USYD but dw about this cos employers know about this and the difference between a 79 and a 75 is pretty minimal, your work experience will be more important than an extra few headline marks.

I get what you're trying to say, but this is a terrible example given that lectures are recorded and that for someone coming straight from school they're used to their day starting at 9am for the last 13 consecutive years...
