Five reasons IGNOU assignment Status January 2021 is not updated? 

Now comes the essential question: Let’s check why the IGNOU assignment status is not showing on grade card 2021-22? 

  1. Without a sign on every page, you won’t be able to approve, but if you are submitting offline, there is no need to make the sign on every page. 
  2. Without front page/introduction page: without attaching the front page, it will not be considered as valid. You can check here my article about IGNOU front page and acknowledgment slip. 
  3. Invalid enrollment number: enrollment number plays a vital role in a university. While submitting it, don’t forget to write the valid roll number. Else your project will not be considered. 
  4. Study center code not found: one thing to keep in mind while submitting the TMA in the study center or online mode is to write the study center details. 
  5. The PDF file you uploaded is not a clear scan copy: do not submit the project if it is not showing clearly. Most of the students face the same problem while scanning the documents. If you don’t have a scanner, you can get any scanner application from the play store.

How to check IGNOU Assignment Marks 2021?

IGNOU online and offline submission date January 2021 has been extended.

Are you waiting for the assignment result? I know you are waiting because the IGNOU assignment marks are not showing. The most common question is how to check TMA marks? With the valid enrollment number, you can check the TMA marks in IGNOU by following the method. We can find Marks in the grade card dashboard.

IGNOU assignment marks

If your grade card is showing incomplete, i.e., assignment marks not found, follow the below steps to get the result.

Visit the study center if you submitted via offline contact at the regional office if you submitted online. You can also email RC and ask about the submission status.

  1. Visit the IGRAM portal. Check the informative guide on IGRAM IGNOU.
  2. Right to Information (RTI): Here’s another method of RTI where you can get a positive reply within a month.

Grade card

With the IGNOU grade card, you can find the IGNOU Assignment results status, which is updated or not.

Grade card offers you a dashboard of various features, including assignments, practical projects, and many more.

Marks show in the grade card without 30% and 70% calculation. 

When you complete all the remaining subjects, you’ll receive a mark sheet along with a provisional certificate by post within 45 days.

Why are some subjects showing 50 instead of 100 in the result? Let me tell you, Mark’s calculation of IGNOU is 50 marks, equal to 4 credits. That means the minimum required for passing in a subject is 18 in 50 and 35 out of 100.

My recent experience, how I helped a student to update the assignment marks.

Last year in the January 2020 session, I got an email from a 3rd-year student. 

He was waiting for ACC1 marks; he completed all the theory papers.

I received a call from BA students. He has been waiting for the assignment number for the past six months. 

After finishing all the theory papers, he could not apply for the master’s course. Do you know why? Because his grade card was showing incomplete, but he had submitted it earlier. He completed all the theory subjects, and the study center informed him. 

He got 80 marks, “not completed,” showing in grade card status, So He failed to apply because the last date of admission was over. 

Now he has lost six months. This problem is weird, could also be with you, so be prepared to deal with it.

IGNOU RTI case study

Today, I will share the case study of one of my students, who faced difficulty while getting the IGNOU Assignment Marks.

I received a whatsapp message from her number about pending marks status.

I recommended submitting an online RTI application. Finally, she received an email from RC Kolkata, and now she received her result by post. Here are the questions.

1. Why assignment status of enrollment no 111111 program code B. COM subject code ABC is not showing on grade card despite the timely submission of assignment.

2. How long will it take to update?

3. Whether the LSC forwarded the marks, kindly provide me a certified copy.

4. Whether the candidate will have to take re-admission as his course term is over, but she submitted all her TMA within time, passed all theory papers.  Kindly find the submission slip.

What will happen if they do not update IGNOU assignment status 2021?

Every year most of the students have an intention to join a master’s degree after completing the graduation in the current session. 

Still, some students face difficulty getting a certificate because the status is not showing on a grade card, 

so you will not get the mark sheet until the grade card is not showing completed. Why does this happen? From last year’s July 2020 session, most candidates face difficulty updating the IGNOU assignment result.
