    Hi guys,

    I'm currently a 3rd year (out of 4 years) student and am intending on doing a summer internship abroad. Many internships require that I submit my GPA, meaning I will have to give them my entire transcript, although UK grading system is different in that we don't really have a GPA.
    So I was wondering if I have to submit my transcript with my full grades from the first two years, which shamefully isn't all that great thanks to my first year, or I could provide predicted degree classification instead, which is much better since it is averaged.

    Thank you!

    If an internship programme is asking for yearly GPAs, then the equivalent is your module grades.

    Hey, I had the same question last year because I was also looking for a Summer internship abroad. Many ask for GPA, but I asked the specific company and they told me that predicted grade classification was acceptable - and I got the job! so I would just go with that -based on my own experience.

    Where are you wanting to go btw? I got my internship on this website - Magnet.me and worked for 2 months in Amsterdam! I'm working as a student ambassador now, if you're interested I can refer you too and you can earn a bit of extra cash
