Hi the study room,
Im currently double majoring in econ and math at a smaller university in canada, my major averages are 81% and 90% for econ and math.
Since i switched major in my second year, my cgpa has been dragged down dramatically to 73% by the grades from my previous major and i have looked at the canadian equivalent of the uk second upper class is around 77%
Im wondering If i could still get in a decent msc econ program in uk, with a second lower class equivalent or cgpa that is close to second upper class equivalent
Chances of getting into a decent msc econ program in uk watch

There are some unis that will take you with the equivalent of a 2.2 but there aren't many and you may need additional experience. Your best bet is to do some research around where you'd like to study and what their requirements are.

You could look on pages such as 'FindaMasters' to look for programs which accept 2.2 candidates. To be honest I think a lot of the really good MSc programs want a minimum of a 2:1. However, if you couple your degree with relevant work experience, great references and a very passionate personal statement, I see no reason why you couldn't get into a reasonably good masters. I live in Scotland and I believe that the MSc in Economics, Banking and Finance at Heriot Watt University (a pretty good uni in Edinburgh) only asks for a 2.2. This is merely an example but proof you could still get onto a good course.
