I have completed my Bachelor Of Computer Applications ( BCA ) and now I am confused. Should I apply for my Masters Of computer Applications ( MCA ) directly, or should I get some experience first and then go for masters ?

This question appears to be off-topic. The users who voted to close gave this specific reason:
- "Questions asking for advice on what to do are not practical answerable questions (e.g. "what job should I take?", or "what skills should I learn?").

I think it's best to do all the academic stuff in one go if you can. It means you stay in the learning/studying/writing up mode. Working is a big lifestyle change for many people, and sometimes it's difficult to jump straight back in to study.
From my point of view, Studying master right after finishing degree is a terrible choice.
Working in a real environment is far different experience than educational environment. Thus getting few years of real work experience will help you to expand your horizon and help you to decide what to study next for your master.
Your expectations about your Master program will be much different when you have an industrial experience as compared to a fresh graduate.
I don't know if it's possible in your country but here in france you can complete high level degrees in apprenticeship which gives you both.
It's a little harder because you're less time at school so you have to work at home , but you're at the same time working for a compagny so you're getting some experience.
I'm actually doing it and I think it's a realy great compromise.
I stopped studying and tried to get experience for 2 years and it's not that easy with low degrees and no first experience , apprenticeships are the best answer : You get the degrees AND experience.
But if that's not possible for you , you still can freelance while applying for your MCA.
