Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA) is an obvious choice for management aspirants, after 12th.
After BBA, students can opt to undergo paid management training provided by various MNCs. Also, depending on their interests and aptitude, students can find jobs as HR manager, accounts manager, store manager, etc. However, after BBA, students will mostly find entry-level jobs.

BBA is a 3 years (full-time) undergraduate program. Students from any stream (Science, Commerce, or Arts) can take admission in this course.

Tips for BBA Entrance Exams Preparation
Following are the two most significant things to consider for BBA entrance exams preparations:
As most BBA entrance tests involve negative marking, you must put special focus on accuracy.
Not attempting a question you are not sure about will fetch you nothing. However, each wrong answer deducts ⅓rd of the marks assigned to each question.
This is why you must not start any new topic when the exam is around. Rather, brush up your knowledge on the topics that you have already covered. If you have covered up to 80-85% of the syllabus, you will do great.
We have talked about accuracy. And, it goes without saying, accuracy is the product of practice.
As I already said, the level of these exams is easier than many other competitive exams. However, the competition is still high. So, to ace any of these exams, regular practice is crucial.
These BBA entrance exams are conducted by the prominent universities or colleges. Clearing any of these ensures that you get admission in a reputed college and consequently climb your career ladder faster.
Godspeed! Hope this information helps 🙂
