Hello, I want to ask what specifically do background checks on academics include? is it only the GPA? or do they also check you're percentage in class (e.g. top 1%) if it is written?
I'm asking this because on my resume I stated that I'm in the top 10% (I had to write it to compensate for a GPA that is usually not a target for MBB), but how did I know I'm in the top 10%?
1- my friend once saw a document in his job for recruitment with the top students in our class, I was one of the top students, I was even like top 5%, but this isn't 100% accurate so I put 10% to be on the safe side
2- I almost know most of the GPAs of the students in my class, and I'm more than 90% sure that I'm in the top 10%
So my question is, should I be worried about me being not really in the top 10%? do they check it? and what happens if they did check and it turned out I'm not? as a student, there is no way to verify it, unfortunately!
