Dear Basavraj

The admission committee will review the holistic profile of the student which includes assessment of your undergraduate percentage(GPA); you performance in major subjects and professional/research experience in the relevant field and your SOP/Essay along with recommendations from your faculty members. Backlogs do affect your profile depending on which subject you have had multiple attempts. Backlogs in major subjects will have huge impact in admission propects. Still, if your other parameters (mentioned above) are strong enough you need not worry about the backlogs.

Also, I suggest that if you have genuine reason for having these backlogs you could mention the same in your SOP/essay.

For further details, please feel free to write to me at

Wish you all the best!

Thank you
