Smile will my academic record and a year back hinder my chances of admission

Hello,
I would like to pursue MS in US or Germany. But I am worried that my academic record would be a problem. I completed my graduation in mechanical engineering in 2010, took 5 years to complete it.
I have 2 years of work experience.
My question is that will my academic record and a year back during graduation hinder my chances of admission?

GPA and the school you attended will likely overshadow the 5 year completion time, at least in the US. Your work experience and application paperwork can help you be accepted as well. Lots of people in the US don't complete their BS degrees in 4 years...

Although I would agree with SKI, I have NO IDEA what you mean by "MS."

While your gpa and school does have influence. Projects you've worked on or developed yourself will help distinguish you from other applicants. Your dedication to your education can play a major role if you are capable of relaying this message correctly during an interview.

The maturity and professionalism you project during an interview is far more important IMO. How they perceive you is far more important.

Craft your resume to the specific position you desire. I admit this simple task may take time, but in the end, it will yield results.

Once an interview is scheduled, you must, with all diligence, prepare yourself to project confidence, comprehension and maturity.

If done correctly, you WILL acquire that job!

This is my opinion. Your job would be to convince "ME" to hire you!

It's that simple.
