These are the key strengths or the benefits of pursuing a bachelor degree in computer applications. There are various other similar courses to BCA such as B.Tech in computer sciences which is considered to be more better than BCA and widely accepted program. It is believed that B.Tech paves way towards a more no of opportunities than BCA but it is not so because it already provides an ample amount of jobs in various fields.

B.Tech as a course is a very expensive and it needs to invest a great amount of money if a student wants to do that. Whereas if you want to pursue post-graduation in the field without a lot of expense, then BCA is a better option. You will learn what you want to i.e. if you are interested in computers and cannot invest a lot then BCA is a better option.

Another advantage of BCA is that you don’t have to appear for highly competitive entrance exams. The students who get admitted in B.Tech have to appear for many competitive exams whereas for BCA a candidate needs to have passed 10+2 exam with minimum 45% marks. Therefore, BCA makes it easy for the ones who are interested in computers and don’t want to give any competitive exams. This is the another advantage of BCA over other course.
