hi,i just finished my BE in mechanical engg from mit,manipal with 6.08 cgpa. im a lateral student so basically i have done only 3+3yr(engg+diploma).i have done my diploma just after my 10th.i just got 7.95 in my 8th sem and my aggregrate from 3-7th sem is 5.7 gpa in engg.I really want to study masters abroad. i dont care about the university ranking. i would prefer countries where i can get a job just after my masters.Im actually planning for something related to energy or oil or gas field.i ll work for 2-3 yrs so that i get a proper industrial exposure, and then apply for masters. Reason of me getting a low gpa is as our colg has relative grading,scoring is very difficult(eg if our class cutoff is 50,then if i score in the range of 60-70 i ll get a D) please advice me what to and how to prepare if im eligible.I would prefer a colg where the cost is bit low and list the names(preferably US or Canada or European countries).im really confused .is an MBA better option? please advice

Hello this is Abismoy Bhusan Sarma. M a student doing my 5th semester of Bsc. I have a low percentage as of now about 58-59 on an average. So is it possible for me to get admitted into a master's program in Canada? 

Beyond this I have done a few internships releatrto my course n a couple of other works with NGOs. I also have certification for few of the events in college and outside. 

I would like to have valuable advise about how can I get there n is it any how possible for me to get there?
