Dear Badshah Hussai,

Greetings from Hotcourses!

You can definitely apply for MS in CS, there are Universities in USA which accepts Indian applications for MS in CS after completing BCA.

Please check this link for a fair idea:

Apart from this you also have to take GRE test and an English proficiency test like IELTS/TOEFL. As you have mentioned that you have an average score in your academics try to get a score like 310-315/340 in GRE, As there is time left in comleting your BCA try to get into any projects because American Universities accepts an application after seeing the over all profile/performance.

For GRE and TOEFL coaching you can refer to your local coaching centres as we dont have any specific details for Rajasthan coaching centres.

You can also get yourself registered on our website OR you may also contact us at 011-49196912


Kind Regards,

Is the marks of the 12th grade important for admission to MSCS in us?

I have only 40 % in 12th.

I have good scores in BCA.

Will I get admission? 

Hi Sinan,

Yes it is also one of the requirement however if you really show up well on your GRE and TOEFL scores with good BCA percentage, you may have some chances. Aim for GRE of 300 and TOEFL 95+so that your profile can be balanced to an extent.



Hi Pankaj,

If you want to secure admission in research based program you need to gain some work experience in the subject that you intend to study before you apply to the universities. Additionally publishing international journals, attending seminars, paper presentation, internships would make your profile very strong. And if you are interested in US universities, you also need to work on GRE and TOEFL scores. All this will help you gain admission to a research based program that would eventually fulfill your dream of becoming a scientist.
