Regional Languages permitted in IGNOU Exams

The Indira Gandhi National Open University (IGNOU) is making an effort to help its students by allowing them to write the examinations in regional languages.

The university's student evaluation division is currently working on implementing the proposal at the ground - level in its 60 regional centres across the country.

V. N. Rajasekharan Pillai, Vice - Chancellor of IGNOU, said that the university had been working on a series of new and path - breaking ideas to meet the diverse and often daunting expectations of a large number of learners who cannot afford to acquire education from a conventional university.

Prof. Pillai said the move to allow students to write exams in regional languages is part of its initiative towards universalisation of education.

The university authorities said that students would get their results faster and conveniently, with the decision to allow students to write exams in regional languages.

IGNOU has also created six zones to decentralise evaluation of answer scripts. The move is expected to benefit over 30 lakh students of the university.

Following decentralisation, revaluation of answer scripts, photocopies of answer scripts and early declaration of results for term - end exams will be handled at the respective evaluation centres. IGNOU holds term - end examinations twice a year for all academic programmes across the country.

Prof. Pillai said that the placement cell of the university is gearing up to meet the employability demand through planned industry representations and contact drives, and by working out a system of enhancing communication and personality skills. IGNOU has contributed 194,196 postgraduates, 197,722 graduates, 309,255 vocational diploma holders and 407,298 certified professionals to the national talent pool and workforce during the past 25 years, he said.

According to the university, it has provided over a million students access to higher education.

Currently, 15 per cent (1.8 million) of the 12 million students enrolled in India's higher education system are students of IGNOU.
