Applying for masters but have a previous uncompleted masters on my profile. Will that grades from that masters be factored in when the admission committee evaluates my application. What if i have very good GPA is Bachelors, but got bad grades in Masters due to some circumstances.

    Your entire record is usually considered. – aeismail Jul 22 '14 at 18:11

The admission committee will see your entire record. It is up to them to decide how to consider and weigh the various parts of it - different people will feel differently about this, and there is no way to know what the sense of the committee as a whole will be.

If you had special circumstances that affected your grades, you should address them in your statement of purpose or cover letter.
