Couldn't make it to the top BCA colleges? Need not to worry! Your career will never be obedient to which college you gained education from. Many top colleges are just overrated in terms of high cut-offs.


There are many average colleges which provide decent education which is enough for your bright career. Your career prospects are same as any BCA degree holder from any college. You can do all those things which a top college BCA degree holder can do.



The uniformity of the syllabus blurs the line between the top colleges and average colleges. Studying in top colleges doesn't mean that you have a bright future. Similarly, studying in an average college doesn't mean that your career is dull. The urge to learn and the passion towards your work make all the difference. BCA opens the door to number of career options after the span of three years. You just need to make your mind to what you want to do.
