Unfortunately you are not eligible even for WB JECA as you have mentioned that you don't have Mathematics in your 10+2 and eligibility criteria for WB JECA as prescribed by West Bengal Joint Entrance Examinations Board says that
The candidate must have passed 3-year/4-Years Bachelor degree programs from UGC recognized University (if technical courses like B.TECH/BE or any other than it should be recognized by AICTE) with at least 60% in Honours/Aggregate (45% for SC/ST/OBCA/OBC-B/PwD candidates) along with 60% in Mathematics alone at the Bachelor’s level. Apart from this the candidate should have at least 60% marks in Secondary and Higher Secondary or equivalent examination with at least 60% in Mathematics in both Secondary or equivalent and Higher Secondary or equivalent examinations from recognized Central/state boards.
The reason being for compulsion of Mathematics subject is that MCA involves different studies of software like development/functioning/implementation which involves lot of Mathematics knowledge and without the knowledge of Mathematics you cannot enter into the field of coding which is the primary requisite(however, not mandatory) for any MCA pursuing candidate.
