Hi! Nice to meet you all!
I have a question I can't get out of my head. Years ago I got my Bachelor's degree with a 2.1. Later on I signed up to a Msc in Scotland, but unfortunately after a good start I ended up having the equivalent of a 2.2 as a final result (it was a "Pass" with a final average of 59). My greatest regret is that my performance was heavily affected by a "hearing disorder" that caused me a lot of pain, both physically and emotionally.
With time I found a way to live with it (I had no other choice, since no cure is available yet), I found a job and overall I'm satisfied with my life so far. However, I'm planning to apply for an MBA in a couple of years from now.
In the admission section of universities that offer this course it is said that a Bachelor's degree is required (possibly with a 2.1), but there is no mention of any academic requirements related to other degrees, such as a Msc.
My question is the following: is my Master's result going to compromise my applications, even though I got a 2.1 in my undergraduate studies? Will I be able to ever again be admitted to a Msc, even in other subjects?
Thanks in advance!

Master's degrees are not typically granted with a class honour but rather pass/distinction, sometimes with a merit.
You don't need to have done a master's degree before an MBA - no master's is superior to any other academically. With a pass in your MSc, you may find it difficult to get into a competitive doctoral course, but the MBA will unlikely not mind.
It will consider your work experience more.
