So, I just finished my Masters at a top University in the UK but I was awarded a Pass. I recently met up with a potential supervisor at another top institution about my proposed topic - and she really likes me, loves the research, and has been sending me funding information.
However, how do I get around the fact that I got a poor grade on my MSc for funding applications? Some of the funding offers a chance for students to do a MSc then a PhD. Is it wrong to apply to these and not even say that I did a Masters? It feels like I'd have been better off.
To add to this, I actually have a very good record of research experience, and my transcript for the MSc is good. I just lost marks on my thesis which meant I couldn't get a Merit (or 2:1).
I'm so worried, I want nothing more than to do a PhD, particularly on the topic I proposed (community stigma, mental health). I really don't want this to set me back!
