Eligibility Criteria for BCA Course


Admission to the Bachelors in Computer Application is based on certain eligibility criteria’s. The eligibility criteria for most institutes across the country are similar. It is a must to fulfil these criteria’s in order to secure admission.

General Eligibility Criteria for Indian students for BCA Course

The individual’s must be a citizen of India. Also preference is given to those who are residents of the state. Some institute do keep an age limit of 17 years.

Eligibility Criteria for Foreign Students for BCA Course

Valid passport is a must. Also they must possess a student visa. Some of the institutes like Vellore University, IGNOU do intake candidates of foreign origin.

Academic Eligibility Criteria for BCA Course

  • Candidate must have completed Higher Secondary Examination or equivalent
  • The minimum marks secured in 12th standard should be at least 50%
  • The candidate should have pursued the science subjects. The science subjects should include Physics and Chemistry
  • Most institutes insist candidates should have pursued Mathematics during 12th standard

New eligibility criteria’s are decided by the universities so as to improve the quality of the students inducted. As part of it many of the institutes are insisting that the candidates should posses a Certificate in Computing. It is also known as CIC.

While pursuing the Masters course the candidates who do not have Mathematics as their distinct subject in Higher Secondary Examination has to pass the CS-60 paper that is offered in their master level course. But the candidates should be having a bachelor degree in the Computer Application from the same University.
