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.




Bros weldone,My interest is in top up. Can they accept HND for top up?

I don't know how what pdg means. But postgraduate studies is PGD
Pgd means Postgraduate diploma.

I wrote extensively about it. It's for 3rd class graduates and those changing course.

He should go into entrepreneurship but you're shading those selling small chops and makeup. If you don't know, Kylie Jenner is a billionaire from making and selling makeup.

Did Kylie Jenner attend any university before selling makeup? No
If you don't know, she attended just high school, not University or College.

Nursery school, Primary school, Secondary school, Private University, then small chops. Does it make sense?

Compare this to
Nursery school, Primary school, Secondary school, catering school, City and Guilds, small chops and makeup, Entrepreneurship school, Open University.

The money spent on Private University education only to be selling small chops is a waste.

She was homeschooled like most celebrities which cost more. University education is never a waste, private or public. And most private universities make entrepreneurship a must pass course for every student.

Mumu, that's America not NIGERIA.

I hope you know that you're actually the senseless one here. Let me leave you with a saying "Seeth a man diligent in his work? He shall dine with kings."

It doesn't matter what you do, as long as you are diligent and consistent, there would be a light at the end of the tunnel. Comparing America and Nigeria would do nothing for you. Get up and work.

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!


Very possible, do well in GRE and have good recommendations and statement of purpose.

Sorry bro, forget masters. You have a degree in Mathematical Sciences, why don't you go into IT fully, start training gradually, go for certifications afterwards...With hardwork and Grace of God, Jobs will look for you when you are good at what you do.

Mind you, I'm in the same shoe like you. I graduated with 3rd class, and I have changed job twice in the last 4years in Abuja with good pay.

How do I do it?

I started with system administration right from school since I observed the future of my grades, after graduation, I went for CCNA training at Afrihub in Abuja, and wrote exam on MCSA.

I honed skills in Networking and Web designing, all thanks to YouTube and Lynda, I'm presently learning Python programming language and happily married with kids.

So, it's your mindset n not your degree. wink
