I have completed a Master of IT specializing in cybersecurity at an Australian University ranked around 200 - 250 in the world for computer science and IT. In my master's, I achieved a Weighted Average Mark of 90.875% with all HD (higher distinction) grades for the coursework and a thesis mark of 95%. The thesis accounted for 25% of the course.
In addition to all of this, I have two refereed publications (a journal and a conference) of which I am the first author. I am currently working at my master's university as a research assistant.
However, I am still concerned about my bachelor's of Engineering (Computer Engineering) GPA which is average at best. My bachelor's GPA is 3.0/4.0 although I showed significant improvement in the final year of my 4-year bachelor's with a GPA of 3.52/4.0. My bachelor's university has a much lower rank than my master's university.
Could anyone tell me what are my chances of admission to a Ph.D. program? I would also like to know whether I would be competitive for scholarships?
I really hope to pursue a Ph.D. but I am really worried about my bachelor's GPA.
P.S - I have 322/340 for GRE with 168/170 for Quantitative reasoning
