i'm doing Msc biotechnology my academic record in high scool is very bad..but since then it has been improving...in Msc till now my grade 6 out of 9..will my high scool grade effect in applying for phd...can any body who has experience, help me..it will be great kind of u all..Does statement of purpose also matters in gaining admission in any good uni. My desertation has also good results. thanks
I'm studying for a bsc in neuroscience in Scotland (which takes 4 years)and would like to do a phd after I finish. I have just completed third year and have decent results (easily good enough for a 2.1) and my honours classification depends entirely on my fourth year. the thing is that my first and second year results were very poor and as I would be appling for a phd halfway through fourth year would my poor first and second year results hamper my chances.
I think it would depend on what basis your tutor (if acting as an academic referee) calculates your predicted degree classification. Why not have a chat with him/her to see if they can put your mind at ease. I would have thought that your decent 3rd year results would be a good indicator of continued success in your final year. Good luck.
