    Hi Manmeet,
    In order to pursue Masters in the US universities, a student need to score at least 50%-60% of marks during their undergraduate degree.
    Maximum of US universities requires student to take up GRE test, if the are planning to pursue MS, and scoring good in GRE will definitely increases the chace of getting the addmission.Generally the good universities requires 1300 to 1400 plus score in the GRE.
    Please note the admission committee of any universities in the US, look at the complete profile of the student rather than focusing on single parameter.
    I hope this answers your query.
