Some people cannot do any educational course on a regular basis. For them there is a way as IGNOU provides them with loads of opportunities in the distant learning format. A degree of Bachelor of Computer Applications is provided by IGNOU for those who cannot do it on a regular basis. This course has been recognized by UGC and AICTE. Study materials prepared by efficient faculty are sent home.
To be eligible for the course the candidate must have passed 10+2 with Mathematics as a distinct subject. Those candidates which do not have Mathematics as a distinct subject have to register both for MTE-03 and CIC along with the first semester of BCA. Candidates are required to complete these two courses successfully before registering for the third semester of BCA. The course has a minimum duration of 3 years. There is no provision for extending the counseling and practical 2nd and 3rd year automatically.
