    I'm currently in my second year at uni and applying for internships. As you know a lot of companies state you should be predicted a 2:1. Is this a formal prediction from your tutor or is it one that you reasonably predict yourself. As in, I have not had a formal prediction from my tutor. My first year results were bad but I honestly believe I can still get at least a 2:1 quite comfortably if not a 1st.

    So, what should I write on my CV?

    Thanks!

    Hello,

    So if you think your first year results were bad then personally I would not explicitly state that on your CV, just put your course and Uni.

    I hear what you say about many banks requiring at least a 2:1, but now that I come to think of it I never requested any sort of formal prediction from a tutor. Also may of the applications do ask for your completed year unit results - so you may end up listing your grades anyway.

    I think saying something along the lines of 'my first year marks were not as I hoped, but I am determined to improve etc...'. Do this in a cover letter or a relevant section of an application form, I'd hope they will appreciate the critical self-reflection. The important thing is to try to get to an interview, from there it's all down to getting your passion and desire across the table.
