    Hey guys,

    I failed my first year studying maths and economics at LSE, failing two modules and getting a 2:2 in the other two. I will be retaking the year.

    I have decent a level grades but no prior experience in the field of finance or banking.

    Anyone been successful in applying for spring weeks in this position or would I just be wasting my time?

    Thanks

    I think you'd just be wasting your time. Do you meet the entry requirements? Only apply if you do.

    You can just put predicted 2:1, doubt it'd be a huge obstacle. But, some firms might question the dates on the education section of your CV.
