    I've been getting grades around 60%-75% and hope to finish my degree with a low first grade. I did a year abroad in Canada and with my best efforts I only got D grades which were still around the 50%-60% mark. The grading system seemed alot tougher too as to get high grades - As and Bs you need to be getting 80%-90% where a first is only 70% here.

    If I were to do a masters degree I would like to study abroad either Australia or Canada. Should I rule out Canada entirely based on my experience?

    Has anyone studied for a masters in Canada?
