I like this college because it makes studying easier and provides study material, even the fees are affordable, which is the first thing when it comes to middle-class families, who can not afford their ward fees. So this is really helpful and timings are suitable and even if we miss any exam we can write it, the next semester with the same procedure with late fees.
Well, I am basically preparing for my medical entrances but on a safe side in order to avoid a year being wasted I joined IGNOU and took BSc course. I was a bit reluctant initially as I want to devote my most of the time in preparation but only after taking the admission I realised that it's easy to cope up both at a time. It is one of the most appreciable and commendable programs set by our government. Many have such assumptions over its recognition or its status. Being an IGNOU student I really want to certain that the degree or course offered by them is as similar as offered by any private or government based traditional universities across the world. There have been my alumni from this educational set up.
The most considerable factor is that it provides an easy and varied approach to the majority of students who cannot afford to study in any regularly based universities be it due to money factor or time factor. In a very minimal expense, it provides quality studies along with efficient study material. Also, frequent counselling sessions have been arranged at various study centres all over the country. The faculty engaged are well qualified.
Likewise in any other university, there is a particular eligibility criterion for each course and one has to fall under the following in order to take the admissions. The whole procedure from registration to fee submission can be done online as well as offline.
Some of the master degree courses as well as doctorate requires an entrance level clearance. The cut-offs vary according to the course and increase every year.
In whole, i want, to sum up, that IGNOU is a well accomplished educational institute that offers various degrees and courses in a distant learning manner.
