Although the Bachelor of Arts program is a semester-based program, registration is done annually. Just as you have registered for the first two semesters at the start of the program, you will have to re-register for the Second year (third and fourth semesters) and third-year (fourth and fifth semesters) before the beginning of the academic year as per the schedule given below:
Learners are advised to submit the Re-Registration (RR) forms ‘Online’ only on the web portal www.ignou.ac.in as per schedule being notified by the University from time to time.
Assignments constitute continuous evaluation. The marks that you secure in the assignments will be counted in your final result. As mentioned earlier, an assignment of a course carries 30% weightage. You are therefore advised to take your assignment seriously.
The TMA for each semester can be downloaded from the Student Zone of the University website. You have to complete the assignment within the due dates specified in the assignment booklet. You will not be allowed to appear for the term-end examination for any course if you do not submit the assignment in time for that course. If you appear in the term-end examination, without submitting the assignments, the result of the term-end examination is liable to be canceled.
