This post is about low academic percentage and the impact of getting admission. Santosh asks:
I have completed M.Sc. (Electronics) with 57.61% (aggregate) from Vidhyanagar (Gujarat), India.
I want to know whether I can join M.S. in electronics (telecommunications) in the USA or not, so that I can prepare for GRE.
If yes, then please give me the information about the universities in the USA, which provides these courses, and also give me information about the minimum GRE and TOEFL scores needed for admission. Some good universities names in USA that provides aid. Thank you.
Usually, many students from Mumbai and Pune University have similar situations. The reason behind this is the university grading policy.
If you look at international students applying from Tamil Nadu, the top ranked students will have 90% grades or higher.
However, the top ranked students in universities in the northern part of India tend to have comparatively lower percentages.
Some students with 70% will be a university rank holder. So you don’t need to worry about your score.
So this means that 57% is not considered low. You have to compare yourself with the top rank holders of your class/university and then see if it’s low or not.
You should start preparing for a GRE exam early. Having a GRE score of above 1,300 will help you get admission with scholarship at U.S. universities.
Information about Universities in USA
I do suggest you take time to read all the articles in this blog. You can find so much information that would help you. Over 200 articles are about the U.S. admission process and university selection.
