I think what you mean is a CGPA of less than 6. GPA is measured from 1 to 4. Now, if you are really wondering if you can get admission abroad with less than a CGPA of 6 your concern is logical. Most universities abroad do ask for at least a 6 CGPA which is a 2.55 GPA if converted. But it does not mean you do not have your way.

There are universities in every country that has a bit low requirement when it comes to CGPA or test scores. For instance, you may need over 300 GREs for a top business school. But on the other hand, there are universities in the USA, UK, Canada and other countries that accept 250 or lower GRE as well. This is the same case with the CGPA requirement. You can apply to universities abroad.

In fact, I have some universities listed for you that accept the CGPA you have -

  1. Adelphi University
  2. Southern University at New Orleans
  3. Purdue University
  4. Cardiff Metropolitan University
  5. University of Sunderland

These are the few universities from the USA and the UK that accept a 6 CGPA and are a bit low. Since you didn’t mention 5, I suppose you have a higher CGPA than 5. Universities like these accept foreign applicants to apply for masters. When you study abroad and have ambition, nothing can stop you from achieving your dream. It is definitely possible to get admission abroad with a GPA of less than 6.
