BBA Course is a three year undergraduate management course that imparts managerial, entrepreneurial and  business skills to students through BBA Subjects. There can be various specializations in BBA courses such as Finance, Marketing and HR Management. BBA is available for students from all streams such as Arts, Science and Commerce.

Anyone can do BBA without Mathematics as it is not necessary to have maths in previous classes to pursue BBA in India. There are some colleges like NMIMS, IPMAT, etc in which maths is compulsory for admission. It is because the educational program there is exceptionally comprehensive and requires quantitative and analytical skills.

While a few colleges like Delhi University and Mumbai University don’t need maths as a mandatory subject in Class 12 for admission in BBA. In this way, it isn’t required that one ought to have maths in class 12 to seek a BBA in India, yet it is always advisable to pick maths in class 12 as it adds to your abilities and opens up more opportunities.

As you know last year in some entrance exams for admission into the BBA course most of the questions were only from Higher Mathematics, so it is necessary to know how to tackle this section to score well in the exam. BBA entrance exams are designed to test the candidate’s Logical ability, analytical skills, current affairs, command of the English language, and mathematical knowledge. The question paper is divided into four sections, namely: English Language, Numerical Ability / Quantitative Aptitude, Logical Reasoning, and General Knowledge.
