What is IGNOU 35th convocation 2022?

IGNOU convocation held around graduation is a cultural celebration of your success as a student.

The university organizes a convocation ceremony every year, where many students attend the ceremony. The important feature of the conference is that they provide gold medals and certificates to deserving students.

The convocation day in IGNOU is a paradise for a learner, and the convocation is where all original degree certificates are provided to the learner. I am getting many messages from the students about the original certificate, mark sheet, and IGNOU provisional certificate.

Students learning in distance education are not taking part in university functions or any other feedback/survey conducted by the university.

College life is a beautiful term in our life. Besides getting the certificate, the students learn many things from the university during the course duration.

Indira Gandhi National Open University is an unforgettable chapter in our life.

So we need to follow all the university activities, i.e., seminars or live webcast programs. Nobody knows where we will be after ten years, but we will remember our college life whenever we hear the name IGNOU.

How to get IGNOU convocation certificate

This question is common to all learners every year before the convocation date. Today I will tell you the steps to apply for the IGNOU convocation certificate.

My recent experience with IGNOU convocation 2021

Last year, one of my friends called me for the IGNOU degree certificate. He completed his graduation in July 2016 session and missed the IGNOU convocation online. So he did not receive a degree certificate.

I advised him to visit the RC with a DD of Rs.600 along with the relevant documents, and he did so. 

After visiting the regional office, he got the application form for the original convocation certificate. An official of the regional centre told him to submit the form.

Within15 days, he got the IGNOU original graduation certificate.

I know you have a question: why does the university not provide the degree certificate and the mark sheet.?

This system is not only in IGNOU, but most universities follow the same rule. The University of Calcutta is also following the same pattern.

IGNOU gold medalist students list

In my first year, I heard about the IGNOU gold medalist students.

Do you know who the previous gold medalist students are? And want to know gold medal eligibility.

As a bachelor’s or master’s student, score higher in all assignments, practicals, and term-end exams all over India. Complete the course within the duration to qualify for IGNOU gold medalist students.

I have researched bachelor gold medalist students. If assignment marks score greater than 90 and term-end theory above 70 in each paper, you may qualify in the IGNOU convocation for the gold medal category.

IGNOU Convocation dress code requirement

Previous year’s convocation dress for girl candidates was White or Off white or cream colour Indian Dress, Sari or Salwar Kurta or Salwar KAMEEJ, etc., preferably made of handloom/khadi. 

Convocation dress for boys candidate was White/Off white, or cream coloured Bharatiya PARIDHAN (Indian Dress) preferably made of handloom/khadi.

What is the cost of getting a degree certificate?

IGNOU Charges a prescribed fee for obtaining the original certificate for the 34th online convocation. The prescribed fee is Rs. 600/-. For Bachelor’s, Master’s, and PG courses, 200 RS for a certificate program.

My enrollment number is not showing while registering on the portal.

The applicant who completed in December 2019 and June 2020 examinations can apply for their degree certificate.

After paying the fee, I have not received the payment slip; what should I do?

You can visit official link . If not received, check after 48 hours.

Conclusion–I have learned many things about IGNOU university and faced many challenges. Last semester, I guided over 400 students after the IGNOU convocation, and they were unaware of the original degree certificate.
