New Delhi: For the longest time now, admissions to various colleges have been on hold given the ongoing pandemic, among other things. While the final year students have been waiting for their exams/results, others have been stuck in various places for various reasons. None the less, universities have been trying to make do in their own manners by providing extensions, altering dates, and also exceptions.
And now, the Indira Gandhi National Open University (IGNOU) has once again, provided an extension to students looking at fresh admissions as well as re-registrations to the July sessions. This is just another of the extensions provided by the university in order to accommodate students who have been having a difficult time in any manner. The last date for admissions and re-registrations is now September 30, 2020, and candidates have to check the official website at ignou.samarth.edu.in.
However, the extension dates are not applicable to the regular programs that are offered by the university and those include the following: MP, MPB, PGDMM, PGDFM, PGDHRM, PGDOM, PGDFMP, DBPOFA, PGDIS, MCA, BCA. These extensions are basically not applicable to those programmes that are certificate-based or those that last for six months or lesser.
None the less, the last date for admission to the newly launched certificate course i.e. IGNOU CMAD (Certificate in Mobile Application Development) is September 30, 2020.
