Is PCB subject combination eligible for admission in BCA course?


I'm a Bio-Science student i.e., I have completed my Higher Secondary from Science stream with subject combination of Physics, Chemistry and Biology. I did not have Mathematics. I want to apply for BCA course now. Is it possible for me without Mathematics?

Having completed 10+2 in Science stream, yes you are eligible to opt for BCA course.

But you are not eligible to get admission in all the colleges. Because, some colleges will give admission only for the candidates who have Mathematics subject at 10+2.

However you don't worry about this. There are many colleges which will give direct admission to BCA course just on the basis of percentage of marks scored in 10+2.

If you have scored a minimum of 60% of marks in your 10+2, then you can easily expect a admission.

But this is a not a great choice of switching from Science stream to Computers stream as the subjects are totally different and it would take time for you to understand the concepts.

I would suggest you to check with the College which you would like to join regarding the admission process.

Some colleges would also conduct Entrance Exam to give admission. If there is any Entrance Exam, know the exam pattern well in advance and prepare for the same.

Sorry, to say that you are not eligible to pursue BCA course after completion of your 12th standard with PCB stream. To be eligible to pursue BCA course, you should have passed 12th standard or an equivalent examination with Mathematics subject from a Government recognised board. Since, you have not pursued Mathematics subject in your 12th standard, you are not eligible to get admission for pursuing BCA course.

The General Eligibility Criteria for applying BCA Course is 12th standard or equivalent like diploma with minimum 50% marks in total and also having mathematics as subject in the qualifying examination.

Some college/University conducts own entrance exam to take admission in this course.

Admission is based on also 12th standard merit basis.

Bachelor in Computer Application (BCA) is an undergraduate degree course in computer applications. With the rapid growth of IT industry in India, the demand of computer professionals is increasing day by day. So, it is undoubtedly a good choice to pursue BCA course.

Eligibility to do BCA course:

>> Candidates should complete class 10+2 exam with PCM(Physics, Chemistry, Mathematics) or PCMB(Physics, Chemistry, Mathematics and Biology).

>> Candidates should get minimum 50% marks in aggregate in class 10+2 exam.

Unfortunately, as you have completed class 10+2 exam with PCB, you are not eligible to do BCA course.

Yes, you can pursue BCA course without having Mathematics in 10+2.

There are many institutes which admit students in their campus who are not having Mathematics in their 11th and 12th standard.

But you may face difficulties in understanding concepts while pursuing BCA because there are many concepts which are related to 11th and 12th basics of Mathematics.

Yes, why not, PCB candidates of science stream are eligible for Bachelor of Computer Application. After BCA course, you can not pursue MCA because you have not studied mathematics at 12th level. Mathematics at 12th level is necessary for MCA course.

It would be better for you to select course from PCB domain like BAMS, BDS, BVSc, MBBS, B.Sc in Zoology or Botany etc.

Most of the top universities ask for maths at class 12th level for BCA admission. If you have studied class 12th with biology and maths then surely you can get admission. There are some universities like IGNOU which offer admission in BCA to any stream candidates. If you want admission in university like IGNOU then you are eligible.

Yes, you can pursue BCA without having Mathematics in 10+2. But there are many concepts in BCA course which you won't be able to understand without having knowledge of basic concepts of 11th and 12th Mathematics. In many colleges, you may not get admission for BCA course as they don't allow students having non-mathematics background.
