I'm from Brazil and the metric system for grades here (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Grading_systems_by_country#Brazil) is different from UK. So, I'm an undergraduate student who wants to apply to a Master Degree in Physics - DAMTP. But, I don't know what exactly is the "overall grades" which they are requiring here https://www.graduate.study.cam.ac.uk/international-qualifications I mean, I must to have 9/10 in each of the subjects or just the "final grade of all the course subjects" (given by some sort of process like weighted average)?

    Why don't you ask them? – user9646 Jun 28 '18 at 18:43
  • Do you not get a final grade/ classification for your degree? That is what they are asking for (overall grade 9/10 is considered equivalent to a 1st class UK degree). – astronat Jun 28 '18 at 20:35
  • Following on from that, I doubt you need 9/10 in every subject (you can get a 1st overall here without getting a 1st in every module). – astronat Jun 28 '18 at 20:36
  • @astronat is this about the course offered by the university or the grades of an student? – M.N.Raia Jun 28 '18 at 22:16
  • The two are connected: every course has a grade requirement that needs to be met by the student. The grade on your degree certificate needs to be 9/10 or higher if the course requirement is a 1st. If for some reason you don't get given a final grade you need to contact Cambridge and ask if you are eligible. – astronat Jun 29 '18 at 3:52
