Though grades comprise an important selection criteria, admissions committee consider the overall applicant profile when shortlisting candidates. Approximately 2/3rd of our clients have relatively weak academic grades. Weak academic grades should not discourage you from applying. During the engagement, we will evaluate your grades and overall candidate profile to showcase your strengths in a compelling manner through your Cover Letter, Curriculum Vitae, Statement of Purpose, Application Essays, etc. During the university selection process, we identify the appropriate courses, programs and universities based on our historical admissions data. We also advise you on additional courses or activities you could undertake to compile a strong candidate profile. Throughout the engagement, we will iterate and refine your application, make it stand out and improve your odds of securing an admit.
Should I apply despite my poor grades?
