    "If you already have a master’s degree, or a qualification that’s an equivalent or higher, you won’t be eligible."

    Does an integrated degree, like MMath, count as a qualification that's equivalent or higher?

    How about the MASt (e.g. part iii) (which is only 120 cats, as compared to an Msc which is 180 Cats)?

    Thanks for any help

    Yes
    An MMath or MASt (both of which comprise an additional 120 credits on top of a BA/BSc) would count as a masters and make you ineligible for the PGL.
