Can I apply for USA with low marks in class 12 ?

I got only 58% in class 12 due to medical problems. Though I got 95%+ in classes 9, 10 and 11. Can I get admission in good colleges in USA with decent scholarships? I have taken courses of some programming languages for about a year. I'm giving SAT this November and expect to get above 1400.

You need minimum 12 years of education to apply for Bachelor program or any other undergraduate program in USA.
They want a detailed report of your performance in the school and high school (Junior college in India), marks are a part of it but they are not very important because the grading system in USA is different. You can apply for an application in your desired university and you will get a report form which has to be filled by the principal or headmaster of your school. So I think you can apply for USA even with low marks in 12th.
