Hi there,

Admissions into any university for any program requires all the backlogs to be cleared in order to get the degree.

As you have mentioned that you have one backlog or compartment in one subject in your BCA course.

So sorry to say but you are not eligible for getting admission into MCA course in chitkara university. Even you will face difficulties in getting admission to any college.

So you must ask your college authorities about this issue.

Hope you understand.

Thank you and good luck:)
