    my name is mecha and I am a mechatronics engineering (honours degree) graduate from Birzeit university, Palestine with GPA 3.1 and I intend to apply for masters degree in mechatronics in the UK, and I would like to ask you guys what are my chances to get accepted in Glasgow or Newcastle universities as an international student?

    I would like to note that most of the students in my college and major are around 3.0 or above and very rare students reach the 3.5 or 3.6 maximum, and yes a very hard university.
    I also would like to mention that I have a very wide experience in that I have built so much projects from quadcopters to complete solar panel systems and so so so so many projects, to the limit that I almost built everything that you can see online, my graduation project was a vacuum cleaner but because of the lack of information and many problems, it was only based on an instructional code and I would like to fix that in the my postgraduate project, I also do not use pre made electronics, what i mean is that I prefer to build everything from scratch, For example, I have built the solar panel from charge controller to converter to soldering the solar cells and the stand. I have done all with my bare hands and so every project I have ever built.
    I am open to any suggestion and please honesty. thank you so much.

    also if 3.1 didnt get me in, do you think that I would be considered for pre masters for glasgow university for example ?
