I’m Sri Lankan Graduate, currently working as research assistant. I have completed my BSc Agriculture special Degree (GPA 2.72/4.00)
and MSc. in Molecular and Applied Microbiology (GPA 3.95/4.00)
. My MSc. degree duration is one and half years and don’t contain research component. However, I have two years research experience (as a research assistant) and I have two local research publications.
Furthermore I have served as a president for a society at university.
I have several problems.
1) I did my MSc degree to compensate negative effects of low BSc GPA, but now I have a doubt about validity of my MSc. (Because 1.5 years and 31 credits)
2) What should I do to reduce the negative effects of low GPA?
3) In order to get scholarship in molecular biology /biotechnology (or research assistantship) what should I do?
