    As Your interest in computer and networks and programming will recommended you also for BCA course. BCA course have good options specially in legacy application software, system software or mobile applications.

    I Think both are equivalent, but still the BCA course is much more acclaimed than the BSC , i think you can go for MCA after any of the mentioned courses. But still i will recommend you to opt BCA instead of BSc.

    B.Sc (Computer Science)

    The B.Sc (CS) course mainly focuses on the mathematical and theoretical foundations of computing, rather than teaching specific technologies that may quickly become outdated. The course prepares you for higher education.

    Eligibility: It is more of an academic course and admission to most universities is based on your performance at the HSC level. Having physics, chemistry and maths is essential to apply for this course.

    Education after B.Sc: You can pursue courses like M.Sc or MCA. You can even pursue an M.Tech, after you complete your M.Sc, if the M.Sc(CS) degree is recognised by UGC or AIU (Association of Indian Universities). For M.Tech you can appear for the GATE examination conducted by the IITs or check individual universities which conduct their own entrance exam.

    Jobs after B.Sc: Although people prefer to enhance their skills by pursuing higher education, companies hire B.SC (CS) students for the post of software testers, software developers in various IT companies.

    BCA

    This is an undergraduate program where students are introduced to various areas of computer science, programming, database design, software engineering, networks and information systems. This course prepares graduates for further postgraduate research degrees or employment in any variety of roles in organizations that require expert professionals who can apply computer science principles to solve problems produced by the interface between business and technology.

    Eligibility Criteria: It is more of a professional course. The admission to most colleges is based on an entrance test, the eligibility for most is 50% or above in HSC with Maths as a compulsory subject.

    Education after BCA: You can go for an MCA or you can directly apply for an M.Tech, after you complete your BCA.

    Jobs after BCA: Since it is a professional course, job prospects are very good. You can get hired for the post of software testers or software developers.

    I will go for BCA. Between BCA and B.Sc. BCA is a professional course where as B.SC is more of academic course.Both re equivalent courses.Software companies treat both courses in the same way.The only difference would be syllabus.You do B.Sc or BCA, you will have same kind of opportunities....there is not much difference between BCA and B.Sc . However BCA is only about Computers application, and BSC has every thing Computers, physics,math,chemistry.

    Both degrees have their own advantage. BCA is bachelor of computer application that you can go for even after 12th and it is all about computer language. B.Sc (CS) course mainly focuses on the mathematical and theoretical foundations of computing. In terms of career opportunities, both are offer varied options.

    Since, you're more interested in networking and programming then BCA would good for you. BCA is a professional course where students are trained as per the requirements of IT field so they will be knowing computer languages.
