Hi Kiran,

I would request you to elaborate on your question. Please answer the below:

Your course interest

Your budget

Would you be open to pathway programs as an IELTS score of 6.0 would provide you limited options?

Please answer the above to offer you apt guidance!!

Both GRE and IELTS are accepted for MS programs in US but GRE is more widely accepted and all the top universities mostly prefer GRE. IELTS is basicaly used for just cut offs since it just determines if you're proficient in english or not. 

Minimum IELTS score required for good universities is 6.5.
