IGNOU admission is basically done during the two period of the year that is in the month of January and second in the month of July. I got to about the admission openings through advertisement and I wanted to take up distance MBA through the distance mode and for that IGNOU is the best for the correspondence and distance mode of education. Admission in IGNOU Cochin is basically done in 3 forms those are entrance exam usually for management courses, merit based or direct walk-in admissions only for certificate programs. For distance MBA I had to appear for OPENMAT which is the IGNOU entrance test for admission.
