 A "first" is a first class degree.

A blue is awarded at certain universities for exceptional achievement in sports. The tradition began at Oxford and Cambridge Universities, where it is only awarded to students who have competed in an annual Oxford v. Cambridge Varsity Match. At Oxford, the winner of a blue can mark this distinction by wearing a dark blue blazer.
