BCA after 12th Science : Eligibility, Career Scope and Details

BCA after 12th Science: Eligibility, Career Scope and Details – Bachelor of computer applications is a three year degree course that has computer programming,networking,operating systems as well as mathematics.It is an excellent career choice and jobs are readily available because of the great demand of IT professionals in all sectors of industry including banking, finance,technology and others.

I,Myself had done B.Sc computer science for 1 year before i decided to quit it and go for engineering instead.

This course that is on par with B.Sc IT and B.Sc Computer science.Many universities say that their curriculum is almost the same as that of Engineering B.E Computers and B.E Information Technology.

The advantage of doing an BCA is that it is much easier than engineering and also it is one year less than the four years of engineering.




Since this is a senior college course,you need to have done your 10+2 or HSC or equivalent state board exam from a recognized university to gain entry into this course.

It is better to apply to the same college from which you did your junior college years as you will have a greater chance of getting admission into BCA.
