List of Top BBA Entrance Exams In India with Syllabus & Tips

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. But, with diligence and experience, they can work their way up to better jobs.

Besides, if students wish to pursue further studies, MBA stands as the most popular and appropriate choice.

In this article, I have listed the top BBA entrance exams in India that will help students get admission in prestigious BBA colleges.

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

Students who are determined to make the most of the 3 years of BBA need to choose the college wisely.

Though the number of BBA colleges is proliferating every year, quality BBA colleges are yet quite limited. So, the competition to get into a good college is quite high, if not fierce.

Logical Reasoning is the easiest part of any entrance test for the candidates who practice regularly.

  • English

The English section of the top BBA Entrance exams is as at par with the level of 12th boards. So, if you are sincerely preparing for your board exams, you don’t need to worry much.

To supplement it, spend at least half an hour reading newspapers, daily. The level of these exams is much lower than other competitive exams.

  • General Awareness

For this section, start reading newspapers regularly. Or regularly tune into reliable news channels like NDTV, Aaj Tak, and ABP.

Tips for BBA Entrance Exams Preparation

Following are the two most significant things to consider for BBA entrance exams preparations:

  • Accuracy

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.

  • Practice

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 🙂
