UK/IRELAND LLM (GPA)


Yagmur

Hi everyone,

I am a young solicitor, one year experienced, in Turkey.

I am thinking about study LLM in UK for a while. But realized that all popular universities as Queen Marry, Kings College etc. require at least first or upper second class honours for entry requirements. My bachelor's degree is 2.95/4 GPA which is unfortunately not sufficient to be able to apply any of them. I am really suprised my GPA is not qualified because in Turkey, 2.95 is considered as a high level out of 4. So anyone know is there any misunderstood for me with regards to GPA for UK LLM entry requirements or any options for me to be able to accepted or shall i research different universities? :(

I am very appreciated if anyone can help me about this issue.

Thankss

Why don't you ask the schools you're looking at?

My sense is that, since your GPA is borderline for QMUL/KCL, and that you have some work experience (which is valued by schools), there might be some flex there.

You can offer to explain your GPA - especially if, as you say, it was considered high and you were in the top 10-20 percent of the class.

Thank you for your respond.

I don't why but I am pessimistic about it. I heard that some one whose GPA is lower than mine, had been accepted to Kings College, they say it is not just about GPA , there are different factors which may effect to be accepted, but i don't want to act within the bounds of possibility. I want to be sure. :)

Another thing is I wonder whether work experience or social hobies may effect to be accepted by these schools.

For example; some one who have work experience or take an active role in any seminars, meetings of workshop much more than mine get ahead of me?

Thanks again..
