**ABOUT OJEE MCA**

OJEE MCA or Odisha Joint Entrance Exam MCA is a state level entrance assessment directed for admission to first/second year Master of Computer Application (MCA) course. OJEE MCA tests the mathematical ability and computer awareness of candidates wishing to apply for MCA admission in Orissa. Directed by the Government of Odisha this state-level PG entrance test is conducted at the start of the academic year, usually in the second or third week of May.

**ELIGIBILITY**

Passed or appearing in Bachelor’s Degree examination of minimum three years duration in any discipline from any University of Odisha or from a recognized University as defined by UGC with Mathematics as a subject at 10+2 level or at Graduate Level. Business Mathematics at +2 level is not permitted. 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.
