I am pursuing my B.Sc in Medical Lab Technology. Am I eligible for NIMCET.

Priyaanka Sarkar Student Expert 7th Oct, 2019
Dear Awadesh, NIMCET is an entrance examination for admission to MCA course. It is a Computer Applications course. But B.Sc Lab Technology is a Para Medical Course which means both of their reaches are different. Now coming to the eligibility, the regulations state that a Candidate should have studied Mathematics/Statistics as a part of their curriculum to be eligible for NIMCET. Now B.Sc Lab Technology doesb't have either of these subjects and so unfortunately you are not eligible for NIMCET.
