I'm not sure about your final point. Most organisations would take a view that if you have fraudulently secured the job, they have the right to take away from you and will probably have a strict policy/process in that (especially given this is a major corporation and not a small family business). Manager's may have discretion on minor "blips" but this is a pretty big one and would probably be outside of the manager's control/decision making.
This is why lying to secure employment is never a good idea. It's likely to come back and bite you at some point and then there's the paranoia it will create until it does.
But the longer the OP leaves it or hides it the worse it will get. Worst case he loses his job and starts again now. Not a major disaster.

So your manager has indicated you are doing well. Good news. Let's say s/he promotes you in the future. And you continue to do well. You get promoted again. This continues. You are now a supervisor. You have some after-work drinks in the pub and mention you dropped out of uni a few years ago (or a former student recognises you, or...). An envious colleague hears this and realises you lied at the outset. You get fired. Sainsbury's refuse to give you a positive reference for future employment. You're stuffed.
Or instead, you follow Vikki1805's advice. Go and get a clean slate with a manager that already seems to like you. And you progress from there. No lies.
Thanks, but I'm going to stick to lying and leave this job after a certain amount of time. There's no need to lie after this, so I should be fine.
