IGNOU, New Delhi
VERY NICE COLLEGE
Nice college because it's an open University and also the fees charged is very low. The biggest positive was its availability. The college is hugely widespread and has it's presence in the capital of every state and all the major cities in India.
FEE STRUCTURE AND FACILITIES
The fee structure was very feasible and even a person from lower income group can also afford it. The total fees for our 3 years course of Graduation was just 6000 bucks whereas other universities charge 5000 bucks for one year alone.
The job opportunities were very less as pursuing a career after completing B. Com is very rare and the chances are also very bleak. So I continued my career of becoming a Chartered Accountant and am going to give my Chartered Accountant Final exam in May 2020.
I have passed the CA intermediate level and got a direct entry into the college due to MOU between Institute of Chartered Accountants of India and Indira Gandhi National Open University. The course has a lateral entry for which there is no entrance exam.
There was no interaction with the seniors as the college was an open University and the students hav no nexus with the seniors. The students who join are usually the students doing CA course and they have lot of studies to do and don't have time to interact with others.
All the faculty were very nice and humble and helped clear all my doubts promptly. They were even available over the phone and shared their phone number with us and are very attentive and helpful. The support of them was what needed to complete my graduation.
The gender ratios was quite abnormal. There were just 2 girls for every 5 boys. This was because the course I opted was not widespread among the girls due to lack of knowledge. There were no co curricular activities held because it was an open University.
COURSE CURRICULUM OVERVIEW
The course structure was very simple. I had to appear exam for just 6 subjects to qualify my B. Com graduation. The course was of three years but I had to give exam in just one sitting and that too only for six subjects.
The college being a government and open University did not celebrate any events at all due to restrictions from the government regarding the cost and expenses limits and also the fees being very minimal didn't support the idea of celebrating any events. The only event celebrated was of Convocation.
LOAN/ SCHOLARSHIP PROVISIONS
The university did not offer any loans to the students. The main reason being that the fees charged to the students was very low and it was just enough to manage it's expenditure and there was no surplus out of those funds.
