                                  Admission :

                                  Admission can be taken via entrance or simply after clearing 12th (even with low %)

                                  Remarks :

                                  Being a medical student, i was aiming for medical entrance and didn't have time to attend regular college. Just to have a back up, i chose ignou which turned out to be one of the wisest decision! Talking about admission process, you can start your semester in june-july or nov-dec acc to your convenience. Just once you need to visit regional centres for signatures on ignou ID, and rest of the work done at study centre. I saw many YouTube channels before enrolling in ignou and friends cleared my doubts too.

                                  The good aspect of college is that this is 6 year to complete its degree program and choice station of the exam. The admission process is very easy twice in a year in July session of January session and the good thing about it that online we can apply form for admission. We can complete our degree with job also So it's very convenient for working people.

                                  So i am studying BCOM from IGNOU nad as everyone know this is an open university it offers courses which we can do from distant i.e we get the study material and we study from it and we have term end examinations in June or December for each semester. Ignou is good for people who wants tovpersue some course while they are working somewhere and cant study full time. So with this they can easily manage their time and get a degree while working. The process is very simple you need to go to the online website of ignou and over there you need to register yourself with new registration and then select the course you want to register for and pay the fees yearly. This college is better then other colleges as it is a government college and the degree received formvit is a valid degree and globally accepted and they even teach in the college on weekends and after work hours so that those who cant understand some subjects they can join this classes which are for free i.e included in the fee

                                  ● Top Answer By Sapna Malik on 28 Oct 21

                                  Ans. Both being one of the best universities cannot be compared as both of them are equally good. But there is no harm in getting admission to IGNOU as the university provides innumerable facilities. The study material is free of cost and provided to everyone.  You can appear in the examination with a minimal cost of INR 120 for each subject. You can even choose your exam centre. If you are unable to complete the course, you can complete them without paying any additional fee.  Being the world's largest universities IGNOU and Nalanda University are on the same pace of providing education with their complete excellence.Read more

                                  Ques. Which university is more valid, Calicut or IGNOU?

                                  ● Top Answer By Akanksha Gupta on 26 Oct 21

                                  Ans. Calicut University and IGNOU are both UGC-certified universities. However, Calicut University offers regular courses and IGNOU offers distance education. Most private companies don’t accept IGNOU certificates. Though you will not face any problems in Govt. sector since both are UGC approved.  If you have enough time, it’s best to do a regular degree rather than a distance course. So, given the option, go for Calicut University. Read more

                                  Ques. BA from IGNOU or vmou which one is better?

                                  ● Top Answer By Aaditya Hari Nair on 22 Oct 21

                                  Ans. One of my friends is doing his B.A from IGNOU, so I might be able to list a few advantages. All of the approved programs are well-known and popular among students and professionals. Admission, re-admission, exam form submission, assignment submission, and other procedures are all simple. The majority of these can be completed online. The fee is nominal compared to other institutions. Study materials are provided and they are of high quality. If you misplace your study materials, you can purchase them online from GPH, Neeraj, or another publication house. Assignments count for 30% of the grade, while the rest of the exam accounts for the remaining 70%.  Assignments are similar to examination question papers (i.e., a sample question paper); therefore you are also studying for an examination while working on them. Examinations (or TEEs) are held in June and December, so you can apply for admission based on your requirements or take any TEE (June or December) starting in your second year of study. While filling out the examination form, you can choose any city as your examination center. Lastly, the study centers are a great place to go if you have any questions or concerns. For IGNOU students, each center has a coordinator and other staff. Study centers can be located in even the most remote locations, and you can easily discover one within 15 kilometers of your home.Read more

                                  Ques. Which open university is better among IGNOU and Nalanda Open University for a BA in economics Honors?

                                  ● Top Answer By Aaditya Hari Nair on 20 Oct 21

                                  Ans. Nalanda University has a deep-rooted culture and ancient history. It is in Bihar and provides study materials in Hindi. The exam centre is in Patna. Students usually fail in one or two subjects every year because of its difficult course.  IGNOU is a well-established university in 36 years and the largest university in the world. It provides study materials in both Hindi and English. The learning centre can be changed at your convenience. You can also appear for examinations with a fee of rupees 120 after every six months. You can get in touch with the current students, as they will be able to provide you with the most intricate details. Analyze both of them and then go for the one that works for you best.Read more

                                  Ques. Which is better for distant learning Assam University or IGNOU?

                                  ● Top Answer By Aaditya Hari Nair on 05 Oct 21

                                  Ans. According to the reviews online, both Assam University and IGNOU are well known for their distant learning program. But it is suggested that you opt for IGNOU. IGNOU is the world’s largest distant education institution.  Their academics and exam pattern are reckoned as the best among other institutions in this league.  They provide comprehensive study material which helps in enhancing your skills and improving your confidence as well as knowledge.  They have a flexible exam schedule and various job-oriented courses as well. They have a few unconventional courses too. IGNOU provides scholarships to general category students but the preference is given more to students of SC and ST categories.  It is flexible among the aspirants of the same.  The course is valuable and the brand tag of the college is commendable.  Moreover, it is an affordable course. Your decision must be influenced by the location of the study center or contact center of the university and the distance from your home. Although the distance does play a huge factor.Read more

                                  Hi Sakshi, admission to all the PG courses is done on the basis of marks scored in last qualifying degree i.e. graduation. No entrance is conducted for the same. Application fee of INR 600 is to be paid while applying for online admission.
