All you need is a healthy portfolio and some important references from famous teachers or architects of your school or your country.
Most of the good architecture schools don't call for big number of CGPA. Most of the universities' minimum requirement is 3 out of 4.
But, every university gives priority on handsome portfolio and references. Suppose if you can manage a reference of Moshe Shafdi of your country.... it will be definite that every university will give you scholarship without seeing anything else.

I think that is an understatement. I believe one should earnestly ask oneself what one expects to gain from a higher degree. Maybe that usually answers which university and program is appropriate to satisfy that goal. The goal statement and its fit with the university's program might be an important element. Typical M.Arch and Ph.Ds don't much help with practical design. Someone who does not intend to work in an academic environment (such as teaching) perhaps, may not prefer to pursue these degrees. A better alternative is to train under renowned architects or attend training workshops.

Thank u Both for your quick respons .you were realy usefull and enlighting , of course i a have certain subjects moving inside of my headtaht i would love to go further studying .but i have few points to point out here before we go furthur in this discussion. first of all it came to my kmowledge if u re a looking for scholarship ,the schloarship donnors are definning what your program will be. .the second point is i am looking at the whole Process of doing my post graduate as an experience that wil be enlighting and hoping that it will open other dimensions for me as astudent and in my professional practice . the last point i would like to point out that the concept of profesional vs. academic is too old now and its beginning to change at least i hope so .(why do we have to do academic studies in the first place if its not going to push us further for a better design .(i know the statement is kind of flat but i hope u get the idea behind it )
