if my main focus is on competitive exams like SBI PO, RRB and civil services. Is it ok choice to choose BCA as my graduation degree??

Papeya Dubey Student Expert 17th Nov, 2019


The three exams that you've mentioned have different exam pattern, but the eligibility criteria is common that is graduation in any discipline from a recognized university(I'm also referring this for RRB Graduate level exams).

People from different background have cracked the above mentioned exams as they have put efforts, so you can also crack any of these exams with BCA degree. During your graduation time period itself, you can go through the syllabus of these exams and start with the subjects involved, with little steps you'll be definitely able to succeed. Going through syllabus, previous year questions, doing mock test regularly and most importantly practice, revision are extremely important in cracking any government exams

Now, coming to your question, if you are particularly interested in cracking one exam among the three, then I'll suggest from the onset, you go with that. As I mentioned, these exams have different pattern, so preparing for all three at one time will become highly difficult for you.


Hello, My birth date is 25 April 1990 (General category) so will I be eligible to give sbi po 2020 as I have seen in ibps website that the age limit should not be more than 30 yrs as on 1st June 2020?

Devraj choudhary Student Expert 13th Nov, 2019


Your age on 1st june 2020 will be 30 years 1 month and 5 days. Since the limiting age is 30 years by 1st june 2020, you won't be eligible for sbi po.

Hope it helps you

Bhaskar Nakkina Student Expert 11th Nov, 2019


For SBI, the Basic  age eligibility criteria is the candidate must be minimum 21 years of age and maximum age is 30 years of age. And also the candidate must have passed graduation from a recognised Board of University with minimum 50% marks. As your DOB is 2000 , you are not eligible to apply for the exam.


sir. naku 48%vacbindhi bank exams ki eligible kadha cheppandhi plz.

Priyaanka Sarkar Student Expert 27th Oct, 2019

For you to be eligible for a Bank PO entrance examination, you need to be a Graduate in any discipline. Aggregate really doesn't matter. So even if you have secured 48%, you are eligible for Bank PO exams. For example SBI PO exam eligibility is that you should have completed your Graduation in any discipline. Aggregate doesn't matter.
