Many a times IGNOU learners ask : What is time duration for which my ignou registration for a particular course is valid?
Here’s the Answer: 2 years
An IGNOU registration or IGNOU re-registration for a particular course (subject) is valid for 2 years from the date of registration or re-registration.
To help you understand better, lets take the example of IGNOU MBA.
Say your Registration Details are showing this:
- The registration or re-registration for Jan-2014 semester takes pace during the previous semester, in this case during July 2015 Semester.
Thus The registration will starts from Jan 2014 semester will be valid for : Jun 2014 TEE(Term-End Examination), Dec 2014 TEE, Jun 2015 TEE and Dec 2015 TEE.
Thus in order to appear in Jun 2016 TEE, you should re-register for the said course in Jul 2015 Semester.
- The last IGNOU TEE you can appear in for the registration or re-registration which commences from Jul-2014 semester will be Jun 2016 TEE
- The last IGNOU TEE you can appear in for the registration or re-registration which commences from Jan-2016 semester will be Dec 2017 TEE
Say the last TEE for any IGNOU course registration was Dec 2015. If you did not re-register for the said course, in advance, during Jul-Dec 2016 semester; then you CANNOT take the said paper in Jun 2016 TEE. Although, if you re-register for the said paper during January-June 2016 Semester, then you can take the exam in December 2016 TEE.
Hope there’s not confusion now.
