Well, the answer is yes and no.
- Most PhD programs that I know of don’t have a CGPA requirement. They look at your application as a whole and decide whether you’re admissible or not.
- So if you have a low CGPA but have done some exceptional research work, you might still be able to get in.
- There’s no hard CGPA requirement because it doesn’t make sense for universities to set one – someone with a very low GPA may be more productive than someone with an excellent GPA.
- However, most PhD programs do have minimum CGPA requirements for specific courses.
- For example, if you want to apply for a physics program, they might require you to have a minimum CGPA of 3.0 in your undergraduate physics courses.
- Most universities require a minimum CGPA of 3.0 (out of 4.0). But if you have an outstanding score in GRE and TOEFL, you can make up for your low CGPA.
