What should a BCA student be focusing his time/effort on?


Right off the assembly line
Hello everyone,
I am a BCA, 4th semester student in IGNOU (distance education). my current percentage is 50% and I am not expecting above that after I graduate. I am also planning on doing MCA from regular course if I can get into a good college. Since I am doing my current degree from distance, I have plenty of times in my hand. So, if I want to land a good entry level job (20k per month) after BCA or MCA, then what should I be focusing my time and energy on right now? I consider myself a below average student in when it comes to technical stuff. I can only write programs in C++,C and Java that also basic stuff, nothing fancy. But I find Data Structure, Algorithm, DBMS, Networking etc. tough.

If I wanna become a programmer or web developer or something, which subjects/topics should I be focusing on getting good at? Also, since I have this time in my hand, what practical skills I can cultivate now that will be helpful in landing a job after my degree? In what topics should I gain competency to ensure at least 20k per month paying job and how much competency should I acquire in such subjects/topics/skills?

Thanks :)
