This question already has an answer here:
When I started the course I had a very negative attitude and did not participate or even bother trying to pass. I am not proud to say that I failed multiple subjects in my first year of degree.
In my second year I came to realize that this is the opportunity I have been given and actually started working really hard on pushing my CGPA up. I have successful done so bringing it up to 3.25 from a low of 1.9. Once I started actually trying I found that I do have a passion and would love to pursue a master.
I am worried that I stand no chance because of that first year record. My question is do I stand a chance to get in a masters program and what do you think would help strengthen my application.
