Indira Gandhi National Open University (IGNOU) has relaxed the eligibility criteria for Bachelor of Computer Application (BCA) and Master of Computer Application (MCA).
From now onwards students need not have Certificate in Computing (CIC) to get admission into BCA and MCA courses offered by IGNOU.
According to the new criteria, those who have completed their 10+2 with or without mathematics as a distinct subject or vocational course in computer techniques or applications, or its equivalent course without Maths are eligible to apply for BCA.
Graduates from any stream can apply for MCA at IGNOU.
But, those who did not study Maths as a separate subject have to register for MTE-03 paper in the first semester.
However, those who have not studied Maths as a core subject in their 10+2 have to pass the CS-60 paper, which is offered in MCA.
