Who All Are Eligible?

In March & April of 2022, IGNOU arranged its 35th convocation. Most students were awarded their certificates or degrees for bachelor’s, master’s, Postgraduate diplomas, or Diplomas. These certificates were sent directly to the regional centres of the students.

The regional centers, then, awarded the students through a convocation event or sent them directly to the student’s addresses through the post.
