I want to apply to the APE/PPD masters program at PSE in 2021 and I'd like to know what it takes to get into PSE (hopefully from someone who is (or has) studying at PSE. I've got a bachelors in Applied Economics from Monash University but my GPA is below 3.0.

I worked at HSBC for 6 months after graduating and I've been working at a foreign policy think tank in my home country (Sri Lanka) for the past 3 months (I'm not sure if work experience amounts to much when applying for PSE). I'm hoping to work at the same think tank in 2020 in hopes that i can publish a few research articles and policy briefs before applying to PSE (hoping this would look good on my CV). My research areas at work are Foreign Aid and Debt and Trade Policy and Development.

(I've also completed A1 in DELF examinations and taken french for my Edexcel IGCSEs and A levels).
