Getting a SA in LDN after Masters

Hello guys,

I am a foreign non-EU recent graduate and I have been accepted to the LSE MFin programme in London, which will start in September 2022. As of today, my plan is to attend this programme and get an IB SA offer after my graduation.

I've noticed that most BBs state that only penultimate year students can apply, yet I've seen some Linkedin profiles with people who got their SAs after their masters. I was wondering how they managed to get through this HR filter. I've heard from a friend that some people just state that they will graduate one year later on their resume and nobody checks in. Can anyone confirm this?

Thanks in advance
