    Shams@ hi dear pran
    In my point of view both are equal
    BCA- Bachelor in computer application
    B.sc(IT) - Bachelor in science IT
    both syllabus are mostly equal
    both have only different name
    After BCA you do MCA
    But After B.sc you do M.Sc
    Bsc. IT is somewhat more programming oriented with very less emphasis on hardware
    BCA comes in the commerce stream. This course entails you with a grasp knowledge of computers providing emphasis on both hardware and software. Job prospects are very good after MCA in top MNCs and firms.
    So you have to decide what you are interested in.
    Good luck.Shams
