student promo code

i booked a flight Manchester to Dubai for later this week a few weeks ago.
i entered the student code
now i have noticed they state in the terms

Be sure to present a valid student ID or school acceptance letter at check-in

I can sense that you will be screwed.

Whether EK will check is a local matter. However, I can tell you that, based on rental car, if you are using a discount that you are deemed ineligible, you will be required to pay the difference back at the minimum.

So either you bring the student ID you are supposed to have, or a credit card that has a limit large enough to cover the fare difference.

Are you actually a student? If so you must have SOMETHING that proves it.
If not, why did you use it?
