I earned a 6.50 cgpa in my master's programme after completing my BA in economics. Next year, I plan to apply for a PhD. I wanted to know what steps I needed to take to prepare for admission.?

financially I'm not able to even apply cause application fees are too high and I don't want to go for loan. I'm totally dependent on scholarships.
