So the institute where I enrolled for a management program wanted us to select 4 electives for 4th semester after the end of 2nd semester and during that time I was in dilemma whether to do marketing or finance. We have 8 electives in total which are distributed equally among semester 4th and semester 5th
After the end of second semester I selected 4 marketing subjects and submitted it to college.
3rd semester is 3 months internship period which will be evaluated and has 1 semester equivalent of credits. Meaning it's very important with respect to final placements and grades.
I am now doing internship in finance and IT domain. During interview I lied that I have selected finance major and IT minor but in reality I have selected marketing subjects. I lied because I wanted this internship and I was already hitting deadline to secure an internship plus I really thought this is what I wanted to do.
I am pretty sure now that I want to take Finance major and marketing minor electives. But when I contacted college authorities about change of electives they said it's not permitted and you would be allowed to change only one elective. So now I can do 3 marketing subjects and 5 finance subjects.
My question is since the faculty will contact the HR to evaluate my internship at the company, there is a high chance that HR will get to know that I lied during interview. I am not sure what to do now. What's the best course of action now? Should I just pray it doesn't happen or go admit the mistake before they get to know from someone else?
