Syllabus: IGNOU BCA Syllabus

Bachelor of Computer Applications (BCA) Syllabus: The basic objective of BCA is to open a channel of admission for computing courses for students, who have done the 10+2 and are interested in taking computing as a career. Its design is based on the BDP program of the IGNOU, with a special focus on computer application and possibly of moving on to an MCA after completing the BCA. With the Core Courses (Operating System, Computer Networks, Databases, Data Structures, etc), IGNOU also offers some Professional Courses like Java, JSP, DHTML, ASP, Windows NT, UNIX (Linux), Oracle, MS Access, Assembly Language Programming and C / C++. Besides, Bachelors of Computer Applications (Students) from IGNOU are placed in top IT companies that lead numbers of students to enroll for IGNOU BCA course in each semester.

Eligibility for BCA in IGNOU: The candidate applying for BCA should have 10+2 with Mathematics as a distinct subject. Those who have not studied mathematics at 10+2 level will have to register for MTE-03. Such students have to successfully complete MTE-03 before registering for the 3rd semester of the BCA program.

IGNOU relaxed eligibility criteria for BCA in May 2009 for those who have not studied math at 10+2 level. From now onwards students need not have Certificate in Computing (CIC) to get admission into BCA and MCA courses offered by IGNOU.

  1. Hi, I am a BCA student "July 2010 admission" and i had not taken maths in 10+2. I am worried that whether will I be able to complete my MTE-03 within one year or not.

  4. @ Bindaass it is better if you go through the previous year question papers and then start practicing maths. it would be better. you will get confidence and at the same time practice - an important aspect of studying mathematics. Practice and practice, maths will be easy for you. Don't think you can't do. Pour everyday few hours honing mathematics. it will be easy.

    @ islam n quran there are lot of online bookstore based in New Delhi India. we do offer help books and guide books. Since you are abroad prices will be up a bit due to postage cost.
