Most of the reputed central government BBA colleges, state BBA colleges and deemed universities give admission on the basis of an entrance test, rather than just on the basis of the marks scored in 12th class board exams.
You can join a BBA course after 12th, no matter what your stream was. That is, students from all three streams (science, commerce, arts) can do BBA.
BBA stands for Bachelor of Business Administration. In this course, students learn the art of running a business, e.g. finance, marketing, systems, etc.
After completing their BBA many students go for MBA, which is Masters of Business Administration.
