Hi Raj, most of the US Universities expect the following requirements

  • Bachelor of Science degree in the chemical sciences or a closely related field with a GPA of 3.0 or more (on a 4.0 maximum)
  • GRE score taken within the last five years.
  • English language proficiency by obtaining a score of 233 (computer test), 577 (paper test) or 91 (internet-based) in TOEFL; or else should possess a score of about 7.0 in IELTS

All the best!
