    Yes, definitely you can do BCA without mathematics background.
    You are eligible to apply for the BCA course after the completion of your 10+2.
    To apply for the BCA course,you should have a minimum of 50% marks in 10+2.

    Best of luck...

    Hi friend.......

    No mathematics is not necessary as a subject in 10+2 for doing BCA but some colleges demand it because it is very helpful in the longer run.
    Doing BCA after studying maths in 10+2 enhances your abilities and kind of work you do. So you should get in touch with the college you are seeking admission in.
    Some colleges also consider the subject Computer Science as an alternative of Maths.

    Try the best college out and take admission according to your convenience.

    Hope the information helps you!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    ALL THE BEST!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    Have A Great Future Ahead......

    Hi friend,



    Well mine friend, YES it is compulsory.

    There are two reasons behind it,,, Programming any language aka :

    >> C

    >> C++

    >> PHP

    >> JAVA

    >> Oracle

    >> .net

    >> HTML

    >> XML

    >> Python

    is a waste without Mathematics. When you reach in the data structure part of any Language, You are forced to use too much concept of Maths, even in Basics of any language you will need to make algorithm, there's you need basic concept of Maths , otherwise you wont perish. Second Point is that If you dont have concept of Maths, how are going to pass two papers which are Maths-I and Maths -II in Two semesters, and one back means a lot, so, maths is necessary.

    Eligibility for BCA courses, which is a 3 year UG program :

    >> You must have passed 12th class or appearing for 12th class exam.

    >> You must have taken mathematics as a one of your subjects in 12th

    >> You must have passed 12th examination with minimum of 50%, but special; recessions are given as per to college.

    Hope it helps!!
