Applying for a master's degree in Canada as a BTech graduate involves several critical requirements that you should carefully consider. 

Canadian universities generally look for a strong academic record, relevant professional or research experience, and proficiency in English. Your CGPA of 6.8 and the history of backlogs can be addressed strategically in your application.

Academic Requirements: 

Most Canadian universities expect a minimum CGPA of around 7.0 out of 10 for admission into their graduate programs. However, this can vary significantly between institutions and specific programs. Engineering and technology programs, in particular, might have more stringent requirements due to their competitive nature.

While having backlogs is not uncommon, how they are perceived depends on your overall academic improvement and the reasons behind them. If you've shown a strong upward trajectory in later years or have retaken courses to improve your grades, make sure to highlight this in your application.

In addition to academics, universities in Canada also consider research experience, publications (if applicable), professional experience related to the field, and your statement of purpose. A well-crafted statement of purpose that explains your backlogs and illustrates your commitment to your field can significantly strengthen your application.

Start by identifying programs that align with your interests and background. Consider reaching out to admissions counselors to discuss your unique circumstances. They can offer guidance on how your academic background fits with their programs and suggest steps to enhance your application, such as taking additional courses or gaining further professional experience.
