Your scores are rather low to get into an MS program but it may be worth trying. There is a huge variation in admission criteria at universities and right now with local enrolments being very low, foreign students are very much in demand - especially at smaller universities.

The fundamental requirement however remains the GRE and IELTS and a lot will depend upon your achievements in these two exams.

The coding question is something that no one, other than the Graduate Admission people, will be ble to discuss. If it is disturbing you, the best thing is to go into the website of each school you are interested in applying to, and discuss it with them. You might get away with it.

Don't do it.Ms computer science will obviously  have you plunge deep into computer hardware and programming.maybe every now and den you might be asked to submit assignments with lot of coding involved. Either to develop an interest in coding or else try for some other course.

If you take up the course .2 possible outcomes can be there

1after a while programming will eventually  grow on you and you will enjoy the whole experience

2) You will be bored and tired with the course and u may or may not get through.even if you get through you will in a pitiable state.
