JOINT ENTRANCE EXAMINATION ORISSA
Exam Month : May
Question : 120
The candidate should have obtained at least 50% (45% in case of candidate belonging to SC/ST category) at the qualifying Examination.
If the candidate has passed BCA with mathematics as a subject, he/she may appear the entrance test without Mathematics at 10+2 level.
There is no age limit to admission to MCA course.
All candidates seeking admission to MCA course will have to appear in Mathematics and Computer Awareness (in one sitting). There will be multiple choice type question (except some of the questions for aptitude test for Architecture). The number of questions will be sixty(60) per each hour of examination.
