GPA Requirements for UK Business Schools [#permalink]

Hi Everyone!

I'm interested in applying for the following business schools in UK:
1. London School of Economics - Masters in Management (1st Choice) / Masters in Management and Strategy (2nd Choice)
2. Imperial College Business School

The websites of both schools state that their minimum entry requirement for the Philippines is 3.5 / 4. I graduated last 2015 with a 3.43 GPA.

Given this, I would just like to ask if I should still push through with my application. I'm worried that admissions may just immediately disregard my application once they see my GPA. Are they very stringent about the GPA requirements?

Thank you!

Interesting if it says it's a "requirement". I know Oxford and Cambridge point to a 3.5 but don't believe they list it as a requirement more a guideline and they do accept students with less than that every year. Using that as a measuring stick I say go for it unless someone with more experience here offers advice that it truly is a hardline requirement.

Great! Thank you for your reply, Redfield. Really hoping that I'll get into these schools. I'm already targeting a GMAT score of at least 700.
