    Hi all

    I am have applied for the PG Diploma in Economics at Warwick.
    I have done my bachelors' in Business Administration and got a 2.69/4.0. However
    my University has provided certifications of grade conversions (and the charts for conversions to percentages) and it works out to 67.22%.

    I have been working with the TATA group for 8 months now on Price trend/ commodity pricing on pulses(lentils) after my degree. Have 4 internships alongside my Bachelors and have decent Statement Of Purpose(so i have been told) and LOR's.

    1) Would anybody rate my chances/comment on this
    2) Could I apply to LSE/UCL after my pg diploma with a 67% in my undergrad.

    Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

    where did you do your undergrad?

    if the US then a 2.69 is held to be less than 67.22%

    look at the bottom for conversion rates.

    I did it in India, our GPA scales are different; which is the reason I asked my college to provide a certificate stating my percentage equivalent. I also got them to attach a grade point conversion table which contains every Grade point and its percentage equivalence. I hope its OK.

    I am applying to the PG diploma in Economics at Warwick.
    PS: I had a chat with the Warwick India office; they said that as long as its 62-64%, or above, I should be OK. But then Warwick India Office isn't exactly the post grad admissions team....
