Manidipa Kundu Student Expert 19th Feb, 2020


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.

What would be the best study pattern to clear DU MCA Entrance Exam while studying at home with the help of book?

manasa Student Expert 17th Oct, 2019

Hello Aspirant,

Make a proper Schedule of studies

It is very important that you make a schedule of studies and stick to it and you will have an exact idea of what you are required to study and the time required for it.

Focus on Concept clarity

It is essential that you have a clear idea of the concepts and formulae rather than rote learning of things for the papers. While you might require it for memorizing formulas it is important that for other stuff you make sure you clear your basics and concepts before moving on.

Keep piles of Sample Papers

Even though there may be a complete change in the exam pattern or the expected questions altogether, it is important that you practice on the sample and previous years question papers available for the engineering exam you’d be attempting. You will know the existing pattern and have a fair idea of the type of questions to expect in the paper along with the time constraint.

Write Mock tests

The paper pattern, duration of the paper and the number of questions to be attempted in the given amount of time is not something you will be able to pick up on the day of the examination. A Mock Test tests a student’s abilities as it not only provides a similar feel of real exams but also helps in building speed and confident to face the exam. Furthermore, they can improve their performance to get an extra edge in actual exams.
