So. My third year GPA was low, I had fifties, and I am scheduled to get a supplementary exam soon (i'm guessing i failed my last module) to graduate. I am graduating from a Biomedical degree, with a concentration on biochemistry. I applied for a postgrad diploma for next year (a postgrad diploma which is catered to people who did not meet the grade for honours), and I am really skeptical about being able to get the place.
So my question is, what can I do in order to further my studies? My entire whole course has been research based, and thus I do hope to continue in that area.
This is what I have thought of: If I get the place, I stay. But if I don't get a place, would be advisable to take a year off to do GRE's and get research experience with a company? I have read from places that if I have prior experience (the current and only experience that I have right now is taking part in a PhD's project as part of my module) it should help balance my poor GPA. Also, what research experience is needed? Does that include internships, or must it be really a research topic based one?
