Hello sir/madam I'm 25 years old I want to do MS in USA what is the minimum cgpa required and what is the salary there we get. And please explain that presently i had central govt job . Is it okay for quit that and go to ms

Ans: In order to pursue a Master of Science (MS) in the USA, the minimum CGPA (Cumulative Grade Point Average) would depend on the university and the programme you're applying to. Generally, the minimum CGPA required is around 3.0 or higher on a 4.0 scale. However, some universities may have higher or lower requirements as per the program. Coming to the salary part, it is challenging to provide an example as it differs as per the field of study, level of education, location, industry demand, and individual qualifications. As far as your central government job is concerned, it is advised to leave your job and then go on to pursue your higher education. You may consider a relevant MS degree in the field. It is advised to look into the pros and cons of pursuing an MS degree in the US. Lastly, a degree from the USA is a highly rewarding experience at both a personal and professional level.

Sir, i have completed my bachelors (BCA) in India in an engineering college and wishes to pursue my masters in a foreign country.My family is'nt well off so iam looking into schlorships.can you suggest some courses with good scope. Also which countries are best for IT field that provide great schlorship oppurtunities.
Ans: As far as Scholarships for Abroad Universities are concerned, you should have good scores from the entrance tests (whichever will be applicable according to the University's admission criteria), good past academic records, your extra and co-curricular activities, additional certifications, your Statement of Purpose (SOP), Letter of Recommendation etc. Those who have gained work experience of a minimum 2-3 years after graduation get preference in admission.

And most of the Universities do not provide 100% scholarships. You will have to bear some expenses (depends upon which University / College you get admission into & what all expenses only it will cover?) .

As you have mentioned that your parents NOT well-off financially, it is suggested to work for 2-3 years, earn some money and also gain work experience, then go for further education abroad.

Before approaching any Professional Abroad Education Consultant, do a thorough research about the Countries/Universities/Programs, shortlist those which you think will be most suitable, apply to 5-6 top Univerities offering Scholarships and finalize one best University/College for you.

All the BEST for Your Bright Future.
