I have got AAD in my A Levels and have finished first year with roughly I predict a high 2:1 / 1st

Has anyone got a top internship at banks, consultant companies, with bad a levels recently i.e
KPMG
Deloitte
PwC
BP
HSBC

I have a few spring weeks and work experience, I have a good CV but I have just put 2 a levels in excluding the D.

I was unable to resit the D due to mental health issues will employers take this into account if I put under mitigating circumstances

Also would doing forage/udemy courses help or would employers reject me because of my grades.

So basically has anyone got top internship with bad a levels??

How did you manage to get the spring weeks? Did you have prior experience in the field on your CV when applying for them?

Do you think it's worth writing a mitigating circumstance (mental health) when putting my A Levels in to the internships application form.

I mean there aren't many "bad" firms that offer springs so I think you're fine. You may be filtered out from a few firms who have a 320 UCAS point psuedo-requirement though.
