I had 75% in my 12th but I failed in Maths. I have also done BA in economics & political science. Will my 12th score matter for PG Diploma or getting visa in Canada?

Generally, you are expected to score between 70-80% in your Class 12th to get admission to your dream university. However, your eligibility and admission criteria will depend on your Test Scores and Language exam scores and the university's entry criteria.

If you are applying for a diploma then around 60% is required in 12th, though there are some colleges which accept students with 55%. If you are applying for a Bachelors degree at a university, you need to have minimum 70% along with a SAT/ ACT score.

To apply for a PG diploma in Canada, you need a bachelor's degree in the relevant sector with at least 65 per cent marks. Programs such as business administration, management, and marketing, may require at least two years of work experience.

You need to get at least 50% marks in 12th in order to eligible to apply for Canada study visa. Canadian Colleges offer a range of diploma/professional certificate programs to an international student even with low percentages of marks i.e. at least 50% in 12th standard.

As per my professional career, I can guide you through the insight of applying for a PG Diploma in Canada. Your 12th grade scores, including the setback in Maths, will be considered, but they aren't the sole factor. Canadian institutions typically focus more on your most recent academic performance, which in your case is your BA in Economics and Political Science. If you've performed well in your undergraduate course, that will weigh significantly in your favor. 

For visa purposes, the primary concern is proving your eligibility and readiness for the chosen program, along with financial stability and intentions to return home post-study. However, it's advisable to address the issue in your application, perhaps explaining how you've overcome that academic challenge and grown since then.

Your concern about the 12th-grade results is understandable. However, when I applied for my postgraduate studies, I found that universities were more interested in my undergraduate performance and my overall profile. The setback in Maths during your 12th won’t overshadow your accomplishments in your BA. In my friends, there were students from diverse academic backgrounds, and many had overcome early academic challenges. 

Regarding the visa, it's more about your intent and readiness for the program, your financial arrangements, and ties to your home country. Be honest and confident in your application, showing how you've grown and what you aim to achieve with this diploma.
