    Re: Are MCA candidates eligible for DRDO entrance exam?

    There is no direct recruitment of MCA graduates like that of electrical & computer science students.
    ISRO conducts recruitment for its 'National Remote Sensing Centre' and for that MCA graduates are eligible. But MCA candidates must either have studied BCA or B.sc (Mathematics) in graduation.
