Postby Atulit1992 » Thu Dec 07, 2017 10:28 am

Hi,
I am from India and i have a bachelor degree in Physics from a very known university from India in which i secured 63% and I also have a Master Degree in Physics in which i secured 57% that too from a known university. So i gave PGRE test this October and i got 800(69%) .So i want to apply for Phd in Canada.
Research experience - right now NIL(trying to find a one ,working toward it)

So , should I apply for Phd directly or MS+Phd??

I want to get in any one of the following which are listed below:
1)Mcmaster University
2)Simon Fraser University
3)University of Alberta
4)Waterloo

Do i even have chance of getting selected ?

Please note that many Canadian graduate programs don't normally do direct PhD admits. The usual path in Canada is BSc->MSc->PhD

Oh, sorry I read your first post too fast and didn't see that you already have a masters degree.

You should apply to the PhD program then. You may not be eligible for Masters programs in Canada if you already have a Masters (depends on the school). If the school is interested in you but prefer that you enter as a Masters student first, they will usually just let you know or accept you into the Masters program instead of a PhD program.

Thank you very much for clearing my doubts.One last question should i retake Physics GRE I checked waterloo university requirements they said they need at least 800.Simon fraser need a score of minimum 750.
So i was wondering if i should apply with my current score or take it again and apply later.
