Hello all, I've done an MSc in Physics alongwith a BE in Electronics Engg, graduating in 2014. My scores are quite poor (GPA: 6.23/10), but I am interested in doctoral studies in Mathematical Physics. I wrote exams for PhD admissions here in India for this year but did not fare well enough for an admit at any of the good institutes. I do not want to spend another year just studying the material again and am hence looking to further my knowledge and better my profile to apply to institutions abroad. I've tried approaching professors here for informal guidance but they seem not too keen to take students who aren't enrolled anywhere. I am also doing relevant MOOCs as and when they are being offered. Are there any other things you suggest I could do to better my profile so I can apply to doctoral programs abroad in about a year?
