If so, please suggest me some universities based on my profile..Thanks in advance..

In our JNTUK system, there is a two subject exception rule, means we can leave two subjects without writing exams or can leave two failed subjects without clearing by the end of engineering. I failed in a subject in my 2nd year electronic devices and didn't need to clear it, so left it. In that case they removed my 1 uncleared backlogs from exempted credits.. So now im taking my GRE coaching & im planning for MS in US. My doubt is that, do we consider that failed subject as a backlog or not?  is that Ok for  Admission.
