Hi Vishal, in regards to international opportunity, a foreign employer has to sponsor your work permit which is expensive and due to the inflation and recession in developed countries; employers are sceptical about employing foreigners. Still some employers employ exceptionally skilled foreigners.

Since you scored 49.4% in your you might have to make up with your qualifying test scores (IELTS/TOEFL and GRE). You need to score a 93 for the internet-based exam and 580 for the paper-based exam for TOEFL and 6.5 are required with a minimum score of 6.0 in each component of the academic IELTS. In regards to GRE you need to score 90% and above.

Hi, It is highly unlikely to get admissions in NUS or NTU. They in general look for students above 80% in the UG. Plus you come with a UG in commerce and so very  difficult to get admissions in these Universities. You can look at doing a MBA or MS in Networking related programs in some Universities where your work experience will be given weightage. 

Seek advice from a good Education Counsellor in your city of residence who will be able to help you.
