  1. Hi. I’m am confident that I want to go further in Computer Science Branch after 12th. But I’m confused betn BTech and BCA. I’m a bit weak in Physics and Chemistry. So I am thinking of going for BCA. Should I go for it.
    Please suggest !!! (Worried) ??

  2. Hi there,
    Thanks for giving suc a crystal clear descriptio
    in ccomputer scienceand engineering, and many of my qqueries are now gone after seeing your description actuall am in 12th std. now with PCM & computer science as my subject, and my main concern is to have a career on cyber security and infosec , cause am freak of these stuffs but after searching about these courses I didn’t get any fruit full result. And now am confused what to do coz I didn’t get any result of a course which is related to these stuffs but I know that this field is a growing field which is getting its value more and more in the upcoming years in the cyber world as well as corporate world .so I would request you to help me in this matter and suggest me some course which are linked with these stuffs .
