Can SA offer be rescinded for low GPA/bad finance class grades?

hey all, knocking on wood for this post, but I currently have an IB SA offer at a BB for the 2024 summer and I was wondering if there's a possibility SA offers could be rescinded for a lowered GPA or bad grades in finance classes. 

right now, I am a 2nd-year at a non-target and I am not doing too hot in one of my corporate finance classes. I will have to retake it next Fall to keep on track as a Finance major at my college and my GPA is definitely going to be lowered to the ~3.5 range. When I was recruited, I had a 3.85. 

Is there a chance that this would be a cause for concern to the bank that offered me an SA position for next summer? Just wondering if I should continue recruiting/networking and keep connections hot in case (hopefully not) my offer gets rescinded because they think I am an actual idiot. 

Very much freaking out and super anxious about this :(   

Thanks in advance.

Don't beat yourself up over a bad grade in one finance class. You'll be absolutely fine, you've secured an offer so enjoy your internship and keep on doing what you're doing!

if anything make sure you do well during the next two semesters as a kinda oh he failed this class but did well across the board for two semesters (so why should we truly give a shit)
