    Hi Manmeet,
    In order to pursue Masters in US universities, a student need to score at least 50%-60% of marks during their undergraduate degree.
    Most of US universities requires student to take up GRE test, if they are planning to pursue MS, and scoring good in GRE will definitely increases the chance of getting the admission.
    Generally the good universities requires 1300 to 1400 plus score in the GRE.
    If you are aspiring to pursue MBA, in that case you need to take GMAT and try to score 600 plus in this test.
    You also need to take either TOEFL or IELTS, irrespective of the course you you wish to apply.Both of this exam, tests the English

    Hi Manmeet,
    The minimum requirement is 55%-60% which means 1st division. But at time there are many universities where 80% is also not eligible.
    And remember that every university will have their own requirements for admission. If you have any specified university in your mind then let me know. Accordingly will be able to help you.
    If you have any other query feel free to raise otherwise you may close the question by giving it a like on it or marking it as best answer. Hope this information helps you. All the best!!
