    What is the GPA equivalent for a 'second class honours degree' at SOAS?

    Also, if your own gpa is lower than that, do they make exceptions at SOAS?

    I have seen on sites that a 2:1 means a GPA of around 3.2 to 3.4 or something in that range. Anyway which course u applying to at SOAS. Hope this helps.

    Medical Schools accepting graduates usually work off 3.6 = 2i.

    Thanks for the responses, guys.

    I intend to go for the MA Islamic Societies and Cultures programme. So a second class honours degree should at least be a 3.2 in GPA. Does SOAS make exceptions - say, if you demonstrate experience and passion?
