I have finished my M.Sc in Biochemistry from India with an acceptable grade (8.4/10 GPA with A grade). I didn't fare very well in my B.Sc, got a 2.43/4 with Second Division/Class Did a part-time dissertation project which didn't produce any results
I'm fairly confident I have the passion for research but lack merit and plus my lab skills suck.
I'm planning to gather more experience by applying for research assistantships here to compensate for the above and am looking at PhD options abroad in the meanwhile since my long term ambition is to be a researcher. What worries me is the strict academic standards required for most decent universities. Should I continue to look for opportunities or not traverse this path at all ? What alternative remediations would you suggest to offset bad grades ?
Edit: Seems I just copy-pasted someone else's topic title but I did it unknowingly. Apologies for that
