Quote From laebae:
They matter a little, but not as much as the master's. I'm applying for PhDs this year and have been told outright that my 2.1 means I've ranked lower for funding than I otherwise would've, even with a distinction in my MSc. But nothing to be done about it now, so no use worrying about it!



Makes sense! Thank you :) Anyone else with some feedback? Also, how much does your dissertation grade strengthen your application?

Quote From Tudor_Queen:
Your grades are good. You may struggle to get funding (up against people who got distinctions). That is the only potential barrier I can see based on what you've stated. But I know several people who got awarded funding and didn't have an overall distinction.


Thank you for the response. I just have one other question..how much do your grades from your undergraduate degree matter when it comes to phd programmes?

Hi,


I recently completed my master's in Education and I was wondering if anyone could tell me if pursuing a phd would be a realistic option for me. My final grades were as follows: 70, 65, 51, 65, 74 (this was my dissertation grade so it's worth 2 modules). To sum it up, I have a 67% average (2:1 merit degree) and got a distinction on my dissertation.
