I received my History degree from Edinburgh Uni, and have been fortunate to secure an unconditional offer for a MA in History. However, what concern me the most is the possibility of doing a PhD later in life, with my (high 2.2), and the possibility of a good MA grade. I wonder, do I stand a chance of getting into a PhD later in life?. or will I need to do another MA to improve my chances?.
Edit: Exam hinder my overall results. My coursework grades where 1st or 2.1.
PhD chances? with 2.2 degree watch

A second Masters won't "cancel out" a 2:2 undergrad degree. If you can get any sort of grants/research funding during your first Masters, that's more likely to boost your chances at a funded PhD. Getting into a PhD isn't that hard - it's getting the funding which is critical for most people and is the very difficult bit in the Humanities. Get a track record in raising money and you might start looking a more attractive PhD prospect.

A master's with high quality writing and analysis can get you funding. Need to interview well too obviously.
