    Hi

    I am a second year student who is repeating the year due to mitigating circumstances.

    I achieved a 2:2 in first year and failed some modules (mitigating circumstances also).

    Exam season is coming up and I want to do well, so I have more opportunities to apply for internships.

    Most internships require students to have at least a 2:1 which I don't have. If I put down a 2:1 on my CV and send it off what will happen to me?

    Will I be blacklisted from that company?

    Also, I am an engineering student and I spoke to my form tutor about applying for internships/placements that are not related to engineering and she said that 'they (the department) don't get involved'.

    So, how will the company verify my grades?

    Has anyone else applied for internships and didn't meet the requirements for and been found out?

    Should I just wait till I get my results (February) before I start applying?

    Isn't this too late? Aren't internships scarce/filled up by this time?

    Help needed thanks!
