#Promote_All_IGNOU_Students Twitter Trend

A hash-tag – #Promote_All_IGNOU_Students has been trending on Twitter after news from HRD Ministry to promote 1st & 2nd year students without conducting exams.



Recently, there has been a news that the HRD Ministry has asked the universities to look into the possibility of promoting students to the next year without conducting exams, based on some previous internal assessments & assignments. This is not recommended for the students in the final year of their curriculum, however.

This has been advised in the wake of the ongoing Corona Virus CoViD-19 scare. The CoViD 19 has already led to all universities postponing their term end exams.



In light of the above, a hash-tag – #Promote_All_IGNOU_Students has been trending on Twitter.

Students seem to be requesting the authorities at IGNOU & the HRD Ministry to cancel the upcoming term end exams due to the pandemic situation & promote everyone, including the final year students.

The request, that seems common in all the tweets, is based on the argument that it is highly dangerous for students to step out to exam centers due to the disease spreading far & wide by the day. Moreover, students feel it might be tedious to reach exam centers in absence/scarcity of public transport facilities.

Another common factor in most of the tweets includes reference to Israel reopening schools which caused 250 fresh cases of CoViD-19 among the school kids.

Let’s look at some of the tweets:























While the fear of the pandemic among the students & their parents is totally rational, how justified would it be to simply promote all the students without any form of proper assessment? Moreover, promoting the final year students – how justified is that for them & for the employers employing them on the basis of their qualifications & degrees? Let’s give this a thought….

It is for no one to guess that CoViD 19 cases are on a steep rise in India & the virus is spreading like wildfire. It only makes sense to avoid stepping out in public places, especially where there is expected to be a huge crowd. Examination centers are one such crowded place.



Moreover, given that IGNOU is the largest university in the world, with lacs of students enrolled for various courses & curriculum, conducting examinations by any alternate means, like online etc., is a very tough job to implement for the university. At the same time, it is equally tough for the students to adapt to this sudden & drastic change in the examination pattern.

Hence, the call for promoting students in the 1st & 2nd year of their curriculum seems totally justified. These students still have another year(s) to study & get proper assessment of their knowledge & skills, before they step out to the real world & look for employment based on the same skills



However, the case may not be so for the final year students. These students, once promoted, will be out of the formal education curriculum, at least for the current curriculum, & look for employment means or further education opportunities. In such a scenario, how appropriate would it be for them to be screened based on just their assignment submissions. That too when the same assignments can be easily bought for pennies & submitted without any actual study or knowledge gain.

Can there be no other alternates for assessments of the final year students, like postponing the exams till situation gets better or some easy way of online exams?



In the current scenario, new admissions are as hard to be conducted as is getting new employment opportunities due to the dwindling economy. It is hard to say if the delay in assessments for final year students would result in an year loss situation. In fact, new admissions can be started by the universities right after final year examinations are conducted across universities, probably shifting the academic year from April – March to a totally new period.

While there is no official word from IGNOU authorities on the notification from the HRD ministry or about their decision to promote the students with or without the term end examinations, only thing that one can do right now is hope for the best decision &, till the time that decision is reached & announced, – STUDY!

Recently, due to CoViD 2019 lockdown situation, IGNOU has given the students a provision to submit their assignments online or via email. Physical copies of the written assignments are not required to be submitted right now.

However, it seems IGNOU has not put any receipt/confirmation mechanism in place for this kind of submission.

Assignments have been an integral part of IGNOU’s assessment strategy. IGNOU has always mandated the physical submission of written assignments by the students at their study center or regional center, by hand in person or by post. A receipt or confirmation of assignment was instantly issues to the candidate.

Assignment submission was also made mandatory for the eligibility to appear in exams & declaration of results.

However, with this new (temporary & rather emergeny) system in place, students are confused during the whole process.

As per IGNOU, students are required to first complete the hand written assignment for all of their subjects. Next, the IGNOU assignment should have a cover page, that mentions all the required details.

Now, the students need to scan this assignment into one single pdf file per each subject. All these scanned assignment files now need to be submitted to IGNOU.



This is where the students are confused. In the absence of any receipt/confirmation mechanism, students are unsure whether their assignment has been accepted by IGNOU for assessment or has it been rejected due to some presentation/format issue or if they have even received it?

As for IGNOU, this is a totally new experience for them too. Moreover, due to the large volumes of incoming email assignments, it might be a task for them to assess all assignments fairly.



It is quite understandable that as this has been a contingency action, of accepting assignments via email & online, IGNOU did not have a proper system in place that could provide receipts & confirmations to students after submitting their assignments.

Hence, if you have sent a mail with your IGNOU assignment & you have not received any Mail Delivery Failure Notification email in return, you can believe that your assignment has been delivered to the IGNOU’s email.

Now it is for IGNOU to actually go ahead & plan to grade all those assignments they have received in a totally new format.

Just to be on the safer side, do keep the hard copy of your assignment safe with you. IGNOU has also mentioned this in their directions. Please do beware that IGNOU can ask for physical submissions of assignments for assessment, once things seem to improve.

Hence, do not fall for the traps of getting a scanned copy of assignment & submitting under your name.

We hope this helps clear some confusions. Please do leave your valuable comments, feedback & suggestions below.
