Thousands of Bachelor of Computer Applications (BCA) students, who wrote their final semester examination in April 2013 from various colleges affiliated to the Bharathidasan University (BDU), will not be able to attend the state common admission counselling of MCA on 22 July in Coimbatore, since their results are yet to be published.
As per the instructions given to the students, who applied for MCA admission counselling, they should bring their mark sheets for all semesters or years of the qualifying examination along with the copy of the hall ticket of TANCET 2013.
On the contrary, BDU is yet to publish the BCA results, while results were published for all other courses last week itself. So the candidates, who applied for MCA common admissions, are forced to keep away from counselling, though they are academically eligible.
Murugaraj, who wrote his final semester of BCA examination in April 2013 and applied for MCA admission with the Anna University, Chennai, told Express that as many as 123 colleges including 120 arts and science colleges offer BCA course, since it was mostly sought by students.
More than 10,000 students have written their examination under the University and many of them have applied for MCA common admissions after clearing TANCET. The common MCA admission counselling would commence on August 22 and end on August 3. More than 8,000 students will get MCA admission by the counselling through government quota. Among them 4,634 students, who had completed BCA, will enter the second year directly by lateral entry admissions through the counselling.
