Interesting question.It is always good to keep on learning and acquiring knowledge.


But more important is that it should be industry recognized and in demand by the industry.

Both the courses mentioned by you MCA and JAVA are both very well recognised by the industry.

MCA or computer Applications deals mainly with computer languages, hardware, software, trouble shooting, lan connection or networking and most importantly applications. It is purely a practical application based course.
These days every industry requires technology to run on.
So every industry requires a techie who could not only deal with the technical issues but also find solutions to deal with the issue in future.
So every organization requires a computer knowledgeable person. Who better than an MCA could be best suited here.

MCA being a practical oriented course, internship or company exposure is a must.
Mostly a full time course, a 2 years full time, recognised degree, exposes you to such practical knowledge. No harm in doing a correspondence course, but please do note that here in correspondence, you would be missing the practical exposure required to apply the knowledge acquired.

The only possibility here is that, you could work in a company as a Software tester or programmer and pursue MCA through correspondence, which will help you apply the knowledge too while studying just the theory.
To begin with an organization as a fresher into the software department, you can get yourself certified through various certificates into software, java, trouble shooting, computer languages and various other computer enabled courses available through various computer institutes like NIIT, Aptech and so on.
Also if you could pursue a BCA course, which is a bachelors in computer application, which is a 3 years under graduate course after 12th. Preferably students who have opted for Math as a subject in the 12th are eligible for this course.


Options are many.
Choice is yours.

Choose wisely.

Wish you good luck...
