I have a master's degree in genomics and data analysis from Aix Marseille University.
Unfortunately, I haven't done so well with my master's courses and have gotten bad grades all along, and my annual average was very low (11.63/20). I had financial difficulties so I had to work on the weekends and sometimes after classes so I wasn't very focused on getting the best grades. Another factor to my failure was that I had to move to another country and depend 100% on myself.
During my master internship I did well, and my supervisor offered me a contract to work as an assistant engineer for a year in a research lab and was featured in a recently published paper.
I want to have a research career and have decided that I would like to get a PhD in a French university. However, I am very hesitant and feeling defeated because of my low marks. Is there any chance for me to get accepted in a PhD program?
