Yes BCA is an easy course compared to B.Sc(Maths,Physics,Chemistry),

To pursue a BCA programme, one need to not have Physics, Chemistry and Maths as subjects in Class 12th class. Infact, an Arts or Commerce student can join the course as well. But some institutions allow only maths students to join BCA. If you find a college then join.

I would suggest you to go for Lovely Professional University as my cousin is also doing BCA from LPU and i was amazed to see her performance in programming and soft skills etc. She is just in her first year and she's is learning things like Digital Electronics, Database, Algorithms and more which completely gives her an edge over other University students not only this she also gets regular updates regarding online courses and hackethones which are very important for building deep knowledge of programming, getting used to of competitive coding events and from placement point of view .

Thank you

Good Luck.

Dear Aspirant,

  Some universities maths is compulsory in 12th to join for BCA( Delhi University, Amity University) and in some Universities, maths is not compulsory to join for BCA( Lovely Professional University). You can check the institute's website for more information. 



Good Luck!

Yes, you can do BCA after 12th from Commerce even Arts students can also pursue BCA after 12th.
It is a new age course and many students choose it for their career growth. If you are interested in computer science & technical field, then BCA is the perfect course for you.
Most of the 12th passed students who want to build their career in IT want to pursue BCA, and some misunderstand that only Science or Mathematics students can go for BCA, which it is not correct. Even Arts, Humanity, Finance and Commerce students can opt for BCA. The candidates who want to make their career with BCA have to fulfill some of the below-mentioned eligibility criteria.
  • The candidate should clear 10+2 Examination from a recognized board of education in any stream.
  • The candidate should have minimum 50% at 10+2 level examination.

BCA will help you to get your career start into the technical field.

Yes, you can go for BCA after your 12th with biology as a subject.

Eligibility for BCA in most of the top universities is pass with 50% aggregate marks in 10+2. (It may vary with the university you choose)

BCA is designed to build programing skills for developing efficient and resource optimized software/website/cloud/mobile applications. Integrate fundamentals from the basic mathematics, physics, management for applying analytical thinking.

After BCA you can work as:

Programmer, Database Administrator, Application Developer, Systems Analyst, Work as an entrepreneur, Web Designer, Career in Multimedia Applications, Graphic Designer, Content Manager, Network Administrator, Business Analyst, DTP (Desktop Publishers)

I am enlisting some of the top universities for your help:

Lovely Professional University- Punjab,

Hansraj College - Delhi,

Loyola College - Chennai,

St. Joseph's College of Commerce - Bangalore etc.

These universities offers excellent learning atmosphere to its students. Few of these universities provides extensive learning programs and exposure to the students. They also provide worthy scholarships to its students depending upon the entrance test taken of the university or board result.

I hope it helps.

Hii Shazia,

It mainly depends on the University/College you are seeking to get admission. In fact, BCA is an easy course than BSc with science. But some colleges and Universities restricts on PCB students to join this course. They only allows Maths students to join BCA course. 

So you should search for a College which accepts the BCA admissions of PCB students. you can go through the eligibility criteria of that college.

Hope it answers your query.

All the Best!!!

Hello Shazia, 

Well it's depend upon universities as every universities have different eligibility criteria for getting admission into BCA. Some can take admissions of students who have studied 12th with PCB group. However, in some colleges maths is the compulsory paper for getting admission in this course. So it totally depends upon where you want to take admission and check the eligibility criteria of that particular college.

Thank you! 

Good luck!
