  • For getting admission in MCA in IIT one has to appear in joint admission test by IIT known as IIT-JAM.
    This test is held every year for MCA and MSc courses in IIT.
    The students having completed their graduation in computer science or computer applications and having 55% marks are eligible to apply. However for SC candidates the requirement is only 50% marks.
