    Hi Chintan,
    If you are interested in pursuing MS in USA, you need to have a relevant UG degree, with good academic record throughout, and at least 55% of marks (would be much more for top ranked universities) in graduation.
    Secondly you need to take TOEFL or IELTS (Both of these are test, to judge your english language skills). TOEFL is of 120 marks, and IELTS is of 9 bands.
    You need to score minimum of 95 plus in TOEFL or 6.5 plus in IELTS. Universities in the USA mostly preferred TOEFL and universities in UK prefer IELTS.
    Than you need to take GRE, and try to score 1400 plus in this as well.
    Hope it helps you in the best way. Feel free to
