Re: academic importance
Well in if you are doing your m.c.s.a / c.c.n.a. course then you must first concentrate on it first. Graduation definitely counts in today's world but if you are good with your course & have right knowledge then i don't think graduation should make any difference. Your knowledge is more important than your degree. Degree works as your eligibility for a particular job but your subject knowledge & skill is what plays an important role.
If you are really interested in having the Arts degree then you can try for if anytime & complete your graduation. All the best!
