Doing MCA from Pune University

Doing MCA from the Pune University was very tough, especially when you are from a non-IT background. When I joined Pune University's MCA course in 2001 there were major changes that took place. Syllabus for the course was changed and new technolgy subject's were introduced. Then I considered myself very lucky to having joined a course,where I would get to learn, some very new and latest technologies in business.

Our senior's had a syllabus that was too old and redundant. Also, the syllabus was pretty easy to study, for the reason that they had old question papers to their availability. They enjoyed a precise reading material too. These things helped them with the kind of questions that were expected with properly defined references and books. If that's not enough, they enjoyed a privilege with passing marks of 40% only.

Things were completely opposite for our batch. To start, our syllabus was new and very generic. Keeping the time constraint in mind, we were never able to figure out on how much were we expected to dig in. As we were the first batch we had no past question papers to our availability. Many a times we ended up surfing the Internet without much of a success or sometimes no success at all.

Just finding the matter for the syllabus, consumed most of our time. Almost 2/3 rd of our semesters went searching the matter. And to make our lives worse, we had passing marks of 50%. I accept that I was a slow writer, which made things even more difficult for me. It created problems in theory subjects like marketing, corporate planning, etc. wherein, failing to attempt even one question could bring failure in that subject.

These factors resulted a drop in passing rates of the colleges. For our seniors, the passing rate always hovered above 90% while for us, the 1st semester's passing rate was just 14%, which by the end of 5th semester gradually improved to around 30%.

All's well that ends well. I am happy to have undergone through such hardships. It has made me even harder and tougher than before.
