I’m due to start in Assurance in 2 weeks, but I’m a little concerned and I wonder if you can help.
I have a firm offer, which as far as the offer letter says is not contingent on me passing my MSc. BTW, my degree is a 1st, so there’s nothing to worry about on that qualification. I’m not actually die to hand in my MSc dissertation until after I start with firm, and so have been somewhat preoccupied with preparation for that instead, foolishly. My question is this: given that I won’t get the MSc grades until well after I’ve started, and my employment offer doesn’t SEEM to be contingent on me passing the MSc, and all my other qualifications are fine, what would happen if I failed? I obviously don;t plan on doing so, and have passed all of the other aspects of my MSc, but, say, what would happen if I did? Would they retract the offer, but then I’d already be working there? Would they ask about the results at a later date, and if I couldn;t give a decent account of why I failed, I;d be fired?
This is a fairly hypothetical question, but one that’s bugging the hell out of me, so if anyone can give me a clue, or has anything useful to contribute, I’b be very grateful!
