Computing is an important branch of study due to its importance in different sectors and segments. The academic program in the field of Computing varies country to country. The nomenclatures are also different and organizations and institutes use different nomenclatures in their respective fields. The broadest areas of Computing and Information related areas are called Information Science. In India computing and other science and technology programs are available in both science and engineering track. Computer Science is a theoretical subject and mainly concentrated on the internal affairs of the computer. It is focused with structure and architecture, speed, processing, intelligence etc. It is also dedicated to the hardware centric areas and purely mathematical. Though Computer Application is an applied branch and it is mainly concentrated on software technologies and systems. It is less mathematical and concentrated on internal affairs. It is rather application oriented and focused with the programming technologies. Computer Application comes with two main degrees viz. BCA and MCA. Among these two, MCA is more popular due to its wider acceptance and entry with bachelors in the diverse field of study. Though the eligibility criteria become more flexible these days and universities are moving towards more justified and relevant criteria in this regard. This paper is dedicated to explore this affair in brief. Moreover, the paper is dedicated and focused on private universities in this regard with special reference to changing eligibility criteria, norms, and flexibilities keeping the demand in mind.
