Odds of getting onto an MSc Statistics course at a top uni with a low 2:1?Watch
Unfortunately due to mental health struggles and my grades were capped. I graduated with a low 2:1 and became ill after graduating, it was my stats grades which saved me from getting an awful 2:2. I have next to no work or relevant experience on my CV and the uni I went to doesn't have a good reputation. So I'm worried that this is going to affect my chances of getting onto a masters course (MSc Statistics).
Now what I want to know is...
1. Many RSS accredited MSc courses are held at top unis. What are my odds of getting accepted? And how do I increase those odds?
2. How do I gain skills and experience in the meantime before late 2022 (when the next available courses start)?
3. Is work experience necessary for getting onto a masters?
I want to apply at London School of Economics, UCL, Imperial and Birkbeck (which im skeptical of but needed a 4th choice which is not a top uni as a backup.
Thanks in advance!
Need more help on going postgrad?
Way too old! It matters what % you got because every man and his dog gets a 2.1nowadays. Any Masters worth the money will be looking at 67% or above, maybe 65% if you've got work experience or some other significant contribution to your application.
