Hey, the effects of your backlogs on your college admission abroad depend upon which country and university you plan to apply for. Universities abroad that are highly ranked and have a very low acceptance rate will be exceedingly difficult to get into, and students will have to hunt for alternative renowned and highly ranked universities. However, in most nations, the number of efforts does not equal the number of backlogs. This means that clearing a backlog in three attempts is still one backlog, and clearing three backlogs in one effort is still three backlogs. Let me list down some of the countries and their backlog policies:

Canada: A minimum of 60% to 65% is necessary to apply for postgraduate study in Canada for a master's. If you are applying for a Post Graduate Diploma in Canada, you may have up to 12 backlogs. The universities solely have the authority to award degrees. So, if you have a higher number of backlogs, a PG Diploma rather than a university should be the way to go for post-graduation.
Germany: Germany is one of the countries that uses the number of attempts to calculate the backlog. Universities do not tolerate backlogs well. Top German universities, as well as many public universities, would not accept students with backlogs. However, several German universities accept applications from students with 5 backlogs/attempts.
USA: Because US universities are already competitive, only a few universities accept backlogs. The top universities do not prioritise applications with backlogs. Aside from the elite universities, several evaluate applications with 5 to 8 backlogs. The greater the backlog, the higher the GRE score required. A number of universities in the United States prefer high GRE scores, and if you have enough, your 5 to 7 backlogs may be approved.
If you have any further queries just ask me.

 It's great that your university allows you to leave subjects with backlogs. In my experience, many universities abroad assess your overall profile, not just your academic record. However, be transparent about your academic journey in your application. 

Highlight your strengths, such as relevant projects or extracurricular achievements. Also, explain how you've overcome these academic hurdles, as it shows resilience. Remember, universities appreciate honesty and the ability to learn from past experiences.

If your university permits dropping subjects with backlogs, it can simplify your transcript. When applying to universities abroad, it's crucial to address these backlogs in your application. 

Be honest and explain the context. Focus on how you have grown from these experiences or how your other achievements balance these aspects. Many universities value diverse experiences and the ability to overcome challenges. Just ensure the rest of your application is strong and reflects your true potential.

 If you have two active backlogs but can leave the subjects according to your university's norms, you may still be eligible to apply to universities for admission. However, it's essential to thoroughly research the admission requirements of the universities and programs you're interested in to understand how they evaluate applicants with academic deficiencies or backlogs. Some universities may have specific policies regarding backlogs and may require additional documentation or explanations as part of the application process. Additionally, consider reaching out to the admissions office of your chosen universities for clarification on their policies and any steps you need to take to address your academic history. By proactively addressing any academic concerns and presenting a strong application package, you can demonstrate your readiness for graduate study and enhance your chances of admission to your desired universities.
