I know a 3rd class holder from Unilorin that is working in World Bank now. Wole Soyinka had a 3rd class. .

Some were not serious in school, but the intelligence \ brilliance is there. . If they can wake up God on their side, their dreams can still be achieved.

Anyone can become anything as long as you believe.

Fake news!

You can start by using Google. Reword your question in so many ways. For example, WHAT NEXT after a third class degree, can I do my Masters degree in the US with a third class, where you able to get a job with a third class degree etc.

Reword in so many ways and you'll be surprised at real life experiences you'll see on links you'll be directed to. You can get a Masters degree in the US if your CGPA falls within 2.5/4 evaluating your result using WES. Or if your CGPA lies within 2.3 thereabout.

If you've got funds, doing a top up degree in a UK school will be your "bestest" choice. It goes for one year and you can do your Masters after that immediately. You can even get a First class in your top-up degree, I've seen one too many cases of such result.

So in other words, your options are limitless. It's a tough road ahead, but you'll surely conquer once you're focused and you learn from your past mistakes.





You're a good person

Prof Wole never graduated with a Third class, he personally debunked such rumor.

Good evening guys.

I have an issue draining my life and my emotions. It goes thus; I have just graduated from the University with a degree of 3rd class in mathematical sciences(IT). It is so hard to accept but the deed has been done and I have to start looking forward. so, I want to make an enquiry if there's chance for me to do a master in the USA with such low degree or if they also accept 3rd class graduate through PDG. please I need your advice on this.

thank you all!

USA is not in Europe..... It's in North America.

Thank you bro.
I have actually done a lot of researches, but I still thought coming on nairaland and relating to the closest individuals will go a long way.
I have gone through those links too, but I can't get the specific info. as all I could come across there were only visa processing which is far from my question. after all, I needed to know if there are Universities over there that offers 3rd class degrees master before processing for my visa, and with few researches I learnt GRE is the route but I still need to know if 3rd class also could do GRE. please if you can help me with more info. I'm sorry for the inconvenience, help a brother

Go online and search for Cyprus universities, then begin to make enquiry about their admission requirement for master program,let them know you grade.

This comment show that you have not done anything, were you expecting to read through such a thread in 1 hour and get all the information you need ?

You should spend atleast one week reading that thread and taking notes, you have to learn to be patient. Damn what is wrong with todays youths.

I have many friends whom I met on that thread now in America doing well, such a rich and robust thread, you are saying you have not got the information you need, who told you you would get the info in 1 week sef.

Those 2 threads have all the answers to your question, if you are unable to find it there then I am not sure you'd survive the rigours of graduate school, trust me.
So he can patronize you abi.

OP ignore folks like these. summarize the info here and use link to back it up instead of posting long epistle pressuring him to read a thread for a whole week. Nonsense.

Most universities in the USA will not accept third class for masters degree and even in Europe. But you can consider Cyprus and Georgia(not costly schools). They have some universities that will accept you, then with their internal qualifying tests.

You can also consider PGD.... not PDG pls. You can run a pgd in Nigeria. Futa runs it for 3 semesters. Or better still contact any lower standard school you wish to attend in the usa, Europe and Canada as them their waivers. Most schools have waivers especially when they target our money.

Plus Africans alwsys do better in schools abroad and they know this. Some of their waivers are that they could ask yu to sit for an internal qualifying test or run a short term program to qualify you for masters. Could gulp money tho.
U are wrong though, many universitis in USA do accept 3rd class, send them a copy of your transcript they will let you know if you are admissible

You can do your masters in Europe or USA if you are paying and funding yourself , they might ask you to do a one tear course before the master. That is if you are rich enough to fund yourself.
If youre looking for scholarship then that is very very difficult unless if you have adequate relevant work experience

Brother, you need to learn to read, study, dig for information by yourself.
Otherwise forget about graduate school.

Some one has given you 2 links , those 2 links have invaluable information, dont be lazy start digging into them and in a little time you will be able to make intelligent decisions about how you want your life to turn out.

Not looking for information from random strangers online.

Goodluck.
the information available online was posted by random strangers so what are you going on about?

YES .
Very possible. Same happened to Prof Wole Shoyinka. He traveled out for his post graduate studies and today he is better and greater than the people that have 1st class.

You sound very uncomfortable with your third class degree, I'm not sure graduate school can fix this discomfort. I will suggest you consider doing a top-up (starting from year 2 in a university and getting a new degree).

You can also walk-in to any of the registered overseas school intermediarys like PFL in Lagos and they will layout your options and help you in processing your application n visa at a fee. That's if you don't have the time to go through the links provided.

Lastly you need to figure out the reason why you finished with a third class and make necessary adjustments, else you repeat same mistakes and end up with a d grade.

No, UK is no longer a fertile land for study because of their policies. Foreigners are no longer willing to go there except on scholarships.

You're just not serious. You need to copy emails of any university you have in mind and write them messages asking all these questions and get the replies you need. You better sit up if you want anything out of this life. Start messaging universities with your questions. It seems Canada will be best place for you self.

study hard and score very high on your GRE, get solid recommendation letters from your lecturers, provide tangible reason why you ended up with such grade, and look for school with sufficient flexibilility to accomodate your inadequacies. Though very good grade in grad level classes could be beneficial.
