You are in luck.

The All India Council of Technical Education (AICTE) changed the eligibility criteria to accommodate students like you, way back in 2012. According to the new norms eligible candidates should have qualified in Mathematics in the senior school examination (+2) or have studied mathematics as a subject in the undergraduate course.

Earlier, only those who had qualified in mathematics at the senior school level were eligible to apply in MCA courses.

Yes, you can do it since you said as "I will be taking Maths on graduation level (BCA)" - undergraduate, so, it matches one of the criteria for MCA admission, I mean without +2 level on maths.

MCA is a masters level degree. And you can only do such degree if you have basic graduation degree. One you have any formal computer related or technical degree such BSC you can apply for MCA. The MCA has different criteria in every university for the application. Once you pass the entrance test you can finish the two year degree with it.

You can't do the MCA after 10+2. The reason being the degree is specific to the person who has basic graduation level. As some of the concepts in the MCA build upon the earlier mathematics and other similar subjects.

Yes, when you are allowed to pursue BCA, you are obviously eligible for MCA.
Both streams are same, the only difference is BCA if graduation degree and MCA is masters degree. If one is eligible for BCA, he is obviously eligible for MCA after successful completion of BCA.

There are many schools/institutes teaching elementary mathematics even if one select Physics, Chemistry and Biology as his optional subjects. If you were one among them, you will get the benefit of that during studies

By passing 10+2, you cannot straightway take admission in MCA course. Either you have to pass B.Sc or BCA in order to be eligible for MCA course.
Since 2012, the criteria with respect to admission has been changed by AICTE and the new provision states that Mathematics should be one of subjects for the aspirant either in 10+2 level or in Graduation level. In case you take up Mathematics in BCA level, your condition for admission to MCA is being fulfilled.
In order to enhance your job - prospects, you should persue your MCA course from some distinguished institutes conducting campus - placement programmes allowing major IT companies to have interviews of the aspirants. These colleges conduct written and oral tests for the screening of eligible candidates. Mathematics, too, is included in the written test for admission to MCA level.
