Why bother with a post grad? Are they even worth it? Have your say! 26-10-2016

    If you want to apply for masters at a top school and you got a 2.1 or 2.2 but get 1st in sec and third years, how would this affect your applications to top schools like oxb, lse etc

    The uni will see your whole transcript but typically only take into account your final classification and any specific final year modules that may be relevant to your postgrad course.

    It is only the final classification they care about.

    I don't even know why they asked for my transcript, they clearly didn't look at it in much detail.
    OT: they wont give your first year grades a second glance.
