Regarding admission at University College Dublin?


I have been planning to study at Trinity College Dublin Ireland but I am told that I can't apply because of my poor score. I scored 157 out of 400 in English general papers. Do you think I am unable to study at Ireland? UCD is now my next hope, do you think I will even get a chance at any Ireland University? 

My subject of interest is M.A in Creative Writing. with low marks in English, only 39.55 percentage, do I have any hope? 

British Council offered me a Creative Writing certificate this year earlier, I have 80 in both English papers in Matriculation and H.S. Will I be able to fulfill my dream? 

If I have possibility, please can you send me a list of Universities in Ireland to guide me which ones will be best to apply for M.A in Creative Writing?

Thank You so very much.

Warm regards

You can study abroad even if your grades are not the best, but then you need to adjust your expectations. Trinity College and UCD are the two highest ranking universities in Ireland so there you will need to have good grades to get accepted.
