do I need to have maths till the 12th standard to apply for BBA in colleges in Mumbai? also, do I need maths till the 12th grade for admission in symbiosis?

Leon George 16th Jan, 2020

Hello Shubhra,

It's not compulsory to have Maths in 12th standard to apply for colleges in Mumbai, although some colleges like St. Xaviers College require candidates to have maths in 12th standard to apply for course. Most of the universities go for entrance exam to give admission to the university, like University of Mumbai.

In case of Symbiosis also you are not required to have maths in 12th to get admission.  You are required to appear for Symbiosis Entrance Test and other process to get admission into BBA.

I hope it helps and goodluck

Thank you
