It is good to see you aspire for higher studies. You can definitely pursue your PhD degree course abroad and for that you need to give the following entrance exams :-

-GRE or Graduate Record Examination

Along with good or average scores in the above entrance exams if you have the following, your chance of getting admission will be very high.

-Outstanding GPA
-Having some research publications / technical projects
-Real time work experience works well.
-Good subject GRE score.

You have to appear for GRE, if you are thinking of pursuing your Ph.D from a US University. Getting a good score in GRE will ensure that you get admission in a reputed University.

In addition to GRE, you need good score in IELTS/TOEFL for getting admission. IELTS/TOEFL are standardized English Proficiency Test and are required for getting admission in any course which is offered in English language.

Therefore, be ready with these scores and you will need documents related to your qualification plus recommendation letters.
