3. If you do not meet the entry criteria of a university or course, consider special entry criteria. For example, maybe you have been hurt by financial or social situations, or you have a learning disability. In these cases schools often use different criteria and take into consideration your hardship in looking into admittance.

4. A lot of Post Graduate Programs requires prospective students to have a good amount of work experience before applying to their course.
