    Hi all

    So I've just finished my 2nd year on exchange (home inst. is Plymouth), achieved a 4.0 GPA during my time in CO which counts to my overall degree, and would hope to be achieving a 1st, or 2:1 overall. I'd describe myself as an outgoing student, (student rep, multiple charity events, went on exchange, very driven and self motivated, sure I'll get 2 good refs etc.) So my question is, will I be able to land a spot in the masters program at Bristol, or have my previous grades let me down? I didn't do so well at A-Levels for a variety of reasons, but mainly my laziness and distractions, but feel I have improved tenfold academically and become a much better student, doing a lot of extra work to try and improve my application, a couple of journal article summaries a week to show, things like that..

    Of course I know there are a lot of factors that go into every application, and I'm not expecting a solid answer, just whether its worth me even applying?


    If you meet the entry requirements then apply. If not and you think your application is strong, email admissions and see how they will view you. No one on here can tell you that.
