Q.1. What is an MCA qualification?

Ans. MCA is a time bound three-year (six-semester) course, approved by All India Council of Technical Education (AICTE) and conducted by almost all the Universities of India The selection of the students is based on a written test. The aspiring students with Bachelor's or equivalent degree thereof with minimum of 50% to 60% (subject to notification) are eligible. (This apart, candidates appearing for Bachelor's degree can also apply). Some Universities may also need mathematics at the graduation level. The entrance test mainly consists of Mathematics, and Logical and Analytical Reasoning. In some universities, the knowledge of Elementary English and Computer Awareness is also examined. There are separate tests for separate Universities/Institutions across India.

There are 2 types of Entrance tests, Unified & Separate e,g. for securing admission to MCA colleges in Madhya Pradesh, there is a Unified MP Pre-MCA test. On the other hand, admission to JNU MCA is through a separate entrance test conducted by the University itself. Similarly for admission to various NITs (National Institutes of Technologies) there is a common test called NIMCET whereas IIT Roorkee, the only IIT in India to have a MCA Programme conducts its own entrance examination.

Q.2. How much do I expect to earn after MCA? 

Ans. Sky is the limit. But as it is technical field, it depends more on your technical expertise. If you do your MCA from a reasonably good institution, you may expect to get anywhere between 5 Lacs to 20 Lacs per annum in India and much more abroad. A large number of MCAs are absorbed in good MNCs abroad after a few years of experience. Infact almost every MCA qualified professional gets a chance to work-abroad.

Q.3. Is the syllabus for all the MCA entrances same?

Ans. A major portion of various MCA entrances syllabus is common but a few MCAs have some special topics also. To answer this situation effectively, a Common Basic Syllabus has been designed at KIMS covering the Syllabi & content of all the various University Entrance examinations like IIT Roorkee, Pune, Delhi, JNU, Punjab, Hyderabad, Indraprashta, Pondicherry, Kurukshetra, MP, and Banaras Hindu university. The Syllabus also covers Institutions like NIT-Trichy, NIT-Suratkal, UPMCAT, BITS Ranchi, Thapar Institute of Technology among others. In fact the course has been so designed that a student can comfortably appear in any entrance exam.

Q.4. Who all can apply for MCA courses? 

Ans. Different institutes offering MCA degree have different prerequisites for the entrance qualifications. But a graduate with 50-60% marks in the last qualifying exam along with Maths at +2 level or/and graduation may apply in majority of institutes.

Q.5. Is the knowledge of computers essential before joining the course?

Ans. Computer languages, knowledge of hardware etc., are often asked in the entrance examinations. But, you do not need to have high level technical knowledge of computer science to clear an MCA Entrance Examination. The MCA Entrance programs at KIMs  cover Computer Awareness and essentials of C programming language to a reasonable extent.

Q.6. If I have to apply to different colleges, do I have to appear for many exams?

Ans. The answer is Yes and No. There are many institutes, which have their separate exams, and there are a few combined tests also. For example, if you are aiming for a seat in one of the NITs(National Institutes of Technologies), you’ll have to appear for just one exam i.e. NIMCET. The same holds true for UPMCAT for admission to colleges in UP, MP Pre-MCA Combined for admission to colleges in M.P., I.P. combined for admission to colleges affiliated to Indraprastha University, Delhi. But, if you want to appear for IIT Roorkee or MCA of Delhi University or of JNU then you'll have to appear for separate tests.

Q.7. What is the pattern of the written test? 

Ans. It is comprising of objective type questions based on 10+2/graduation Maths, logic, analytical reasoning and computer awareness etc.

Q. 8. I had no Math at plus two level. Am I eligible for MCA entrance tests?

Ans. Even if you had math at any stage after 10+2 level its O.K. However if you did not have math then you can apply to only a few good MCA Institutes.
