    Did they get back to you automatically or did you have to remind them again? I'm really confused with what they're doing
    They got back to me without prompting. It all seems very, very late in the day for a recruitment process for a summer scheme..

    I am too but someone has already had an offer for the work placement on this forum. I emailed grad recruitment however and they said that they are still processing applications so fingers crossed!

    Congrats. Wonder what our telephone interview will involve, and why they took so long to get back to us.

    Very important.

    Most firms will ask for them either during your vacation scheme or prior to making a decision on a TC. For those that don't, if you get a TC most firms will make the offer conditional upon you receiving a 2.1 or above. The TC on boarding process/reference checks would pick up if you haven't achieved a 2.1.

    As long as your grades are consistent with your previous grades or have improved there's no issue though.

    Would a drop of 1 or 2% from 66.5% be worrying?

    Thanks!

    I emailed them a few days ago and she replied today asking me when I finish exams.... I think there's a chance the recruitment manager only work once a week or something....

    I received an email yesterday inviting me to a telephone interview, irritatingly the dates clash with another scheme :/

    No. In my experience as long as you're consistently at a 2:1 (i.e. 60+) with the odd slip down into the 2:2 range, you are fine at most firms as some uni departments may mark harsher than others, people do different modules etc.
