Job offer and then you get a 2:2

BDO
#1

Hi,

I was just wondering if anybody knew what the big 4 (and GT & BDO) policy is on the above scenario.
For example you are a final year student at University expecting a 2:1, you get an offer from one of the firms I mentioned (minimum requirement 2:1), and then unfortunately you just missed out on a 2:1. What would happen? Would the offer be retracted?

If anybody knows or think they might know what would happen I would be really interested to hear,

Thanks,

My offer was withdrawn at PwC. Depends on how badly you do and if they think the reasons for your 2.2 are justifiable. Make sure you have a good reason. I didn’t think it was important and went to the interview to discuss this and felt the job was mine but they grilled me and I didn’t answer well.
