    YES you should have mathematics to apply for MCA or BCA course.These courses are computer based courses where you will be learn about different aspects of computers such as hardware and software so you must have mathematics for solving the problems.

    As we all know CPU is used to compute different problems using arithmatic operations o you should know what is arithmatic.Mathematics is playing a crucial role in computer hardware and software study

    OPERATING SYSTEM

    DESIGN OF ALGORITHM

    COMPILER DESIGNING

    MICROPROCESSOR

    without having mathematics you can not read all the above MCA or BCA subjects

    Hey friend,

    Yeah mathematics is very compulsory when it comes to joining in BCA or MCA course

    Both these course are Computer related courses and BCA stands for Bachelor Of Computer Application which is a UG course and MCA stands for Master of Computer Application and this is a PG course.

    As per the eligibility standards is concerned it is mentioned that you need to have completed +2 with Mathematics as subject.

    In the case of joining in MCA course you need to write the entrance exam for joining as there are many entrance exam which is conducted for joining as it is a PG Course.

    ALL THE BEST

    For taking Admission in BCA that educational qualification you will required are as follows:-

    >>Your must be passed out in class 10 as well as in class 12 from recognized board/University.
    >>You minimum percentage of marks should be 60%.

    For taking Admission in BCA you do not require Mathematics as a necessary subjects.
    But for taking Admission in MCA you will require Mathematics/Statistics and it should be studied at Graduation.
    As if you will do BCA you will study Computer Mathematics and Numerical and statistical Mathematics.

    But in various MCA entrance exams they will demand for Mathematics and it should be studied in 10+2 Level.
    If you have not studied Mathematics in 10+2 level then the solution for this is that you will have to do Foundation course of Mathematics of 10+2 level.
    This course can be done through IGNOU.
    This course code is MCSE 3 and MCSE 4.
    This course fee structure will be Rs 1800.

    Yes, Mathematics is compulsory for BCA and MCA course .

    BCA stands for Bachelor of Computer Application and the duration of the course is for 3 years . The course is divided into 6 semester .

    The minimum educational qualification required for BCA course is needed 12th standard.But your 12th standard marks must be above 45%.


    But your 12th standard course must contain Maths or Stat or Computer Application subject.


    Some colleges conducts their own entrance exam , in this case they can consider any subject requirement.


    There is no age criteria so any body can apply for BCA course in any time but your minimum age should be 17 years old.


    MCA is an 3 years Master degree and the course is divided into six semester . This Course having good job prospectus in both the Government as well as private sectors .

    If you have completed your graduation with minimum marks then you can applicable for this course .

    But the major criteria to satisfy in this regard is that you need to have mathematics at 10+2 level as otherwise you cannot apply for this course.

    No, it is not compulsory.
    Many of college require Mathematics as compulsory subject and many of college not restrict this type of suject, the simply require 12th (10+2).
    This all parameter differ from college to college.

    Re: Is mathematics compulsory for courses like BCA and MCA?

    Mathematics as a subject is important to do BCA and MCA. In order to do BCA, 12th class with mathematics is necessary. Also those candidates who have taken statistics as a subject in this level can also opt for BCA. To join for MCA course, mathematics or statistics subjects are necessary. Candidates can take up these subjects as optional either at 12th class or else in graduation level. A written exam will be the base of selection for MCA course. Also 50% marks is specified for the same.

    Re: Is mathematics compulsory for courses like BCA and MCA?

    My dear friend.

    BCA stands for Bachelor of Computer Applications.

    MCA stands for Master of Computer Applications.

    BCA is a Graduation Level Course.

    MCA is a Post Graduate Course.

    Both BCA and MCA are 3 year Courses.

    They are divided into 6 semesters each.

    BCA does not require Maths as a compulsory subject in 12th.

    But after doing BCA if you want to go for MCA then it is mandatory.

    So it will be good if you have studied Mathematics in 12th.

    Then it will help you getting admission in MCA.

    Otherwise regarding BCA there is no such condition.

    But for MCA Mathematics is necessary.

    Thank You.
