So I got a grad job and they've asked for a 2:1. I have had mitigating circum since second year. Depression and losing my child 6 months in pregnancy. The university is aware and have been very lenient regarding deadlines.
The problem is I've calculated it's mathematically impossible for me to get a 2:1 now. I've asked my head of dept and they said I just need to finish and they'll see based on my grades for the year if I reach the cusp to get a 2:1 and they'll push me up.
I asked my employer what happens if I don't meet it and they said they'll take in consideration MITCIRCUM but on my contract it says my offer can be withdrawn if I can't prove I have a 2:1.
I'm ******** myself.
I've got a dissertation and 2 3k essays due by the 1st of Jun. No exams
It's really hard to get them done, I get mini panic attacks everything my company (IBM) email me.
Has anyone or anyone you know not met their grad job offer but the employer still let them get the job?
Btw I've signed my contract, done the onboarding all the HR stuff so it's all legit.
Don't know if it's worth noting that my particular scheme wasn't that popular and not many people applied. They also loved me at interview and I have lots of work exp.
However why would such a huge company take me on when there's thousands of graduates with 2:1s and above jobless?
Also I don't really want to disclose the extent of my mitigating circumstances because it could count against me.
Because it's chronic depression and not a physical illness they could think I'm too much hassle and discriminate against that. Legally you're not allowed to do that I know but come on.
But on the other hand if It's vague they might not appreciate the circumstances I've had to overcome to get that far.
I'm rambling now.
Worried I won't meet my grad job offer! Advice please Watch

There is no miracle alternative.
