Unhappy with your BCA scores? Do not be! Scores may somehow affect your near future but would have no affect in long run. The factor that is going to have effect in long run is your belief in yourself. As long as you believe you can, you 'can'. Losing hope will lead you nowhere. This is a misconception that the students with high scores only can pursue MCA after BCA. As I already stated, this is a 'misconception'. You can pursure MCA even if you have scored low marks in BCA. It is agreeable that you can not get into the top MCA colleges. But there are many decent colleges with provide admission opprtunities to even low scoring students. Your scores are never a true representator of of your skills. Scores are unable to measure how technically sound you are. You have a long way to travel, scores will later take a backseat and the vehicle of success would be driven by your knowledge and experience. Both of these elements will help you achieve your aim.

To take admission in MCA, you would have to clear an entrance exam. The eligibility for sitting in this exam is at least 55% in your graduation and mathematics in your 12th standard. Based on the combined score of your entrance exam and graduation score, you will get admission in that university.
