i am completed b.sc math. can i apply for mca
Yes You can Apply!
Here is the M.C.A. Eligibility.
Any graduate who has passed or appearing for the final year degree examination in any discipline (Science, Commerce, Arts, Engineering or any approved University) is eligible to apply. Candidates must have mathematics as a subject in their 10+2 course or any one year of graduation.
So Surely you can apply for It !
Best of Luck for your Future!
i am from commerce background and i have done bba so can i also apply for mca?
the basic eligibility for mca course is students need to have bachelors degree in any discipline, like arts, science or commerce, but must have studies mathematics as a subject in 10+2 course.
now for nits, which is the mst prestigious institute in india, eligibility criteria is slightly different, you need to have graduation in bsc or be/btech or bit and must have studies mathematics or statistics as a subject in graduation course.
hope it would help.
