Do individuals marks matter as much as GPA?

Post by kopti » Fri Mar 16, 2018 12:32 pm

Hello!
I am thinking of applying for the clinical doctorate next year and I was hoping you could help me with the following question.
I have been going over my modules and grades from my undergraduate studies and although my GPA is a high 2:1 there is one module that I got 49.00. Do you know if in the application process they will look at individual grades and decline one's application because of a single grade below 2:2?
Thanks!

Each course makes their own decisions, there is no hard and fast rules. And GPA isn't really a term used in the UK muchm which might be why you didn't get any answers.
