I wanted to study BLIS which means bachelor in library and information science but nor in regular mode but in correspondence so I got to know that IGNOU Cochin offers this course. I took admission for BLIS after my 12th. I had many doubts like what is admission basis for joining BLis in IGNOU Cochin? what is the fee structure in IGNOU Cochin? duration of BLIS course in IGNOU Cochin? So the admission was as usual like if I have good marks in 12th enough for admission in IGNOU Cochin. There is no age limit for this course and duration of the course was 1 year and can be passed in maximum 2 years. IGNOU Cochin fee structure for BLIS is approximately is INR 5000.

I have studied distance MBA from IGNOU Cochin and I would like to review about it. I will tell that they offer great distance education as it is the top Open University in India. Even I didn’t know this before admission I used to think is the IGNOU Cochin good for distance MBA? Which is the IGNOU Cochin entrance exam for distance MBA? When is the last date to apply for distance MBA in IGNOU Cochin? So they had told me that OPENMAT entrance exam is needed and 50% aggregate in graduation. We can apply for distance MBA before the month of January or July after qualifying OPENMAT exam. I paid like INR 31,500 for complete distance MBA course in 2 instalment.

Me and my friend was searching for some open university to pursue post-graduation diploma course through distance mode. So we both decided to take admission in IGNOU Cochin. We both visited the IGNOU Cochin and asked them what the admission process is for PGD in IGNOU Cochin? what is the entrance exam accepted in IGNOU Cochin for PGD admission? What is the IGNOU Cochin fee structure for distance PGD course? when is the last date for applying in IGNOU Cochin? The fee structure in IGNOU Cochin for distance PGD was INR 15,000. Admission in IGNOU Cochin will be given if we have 50% aggregate in graduation and no entrance exam is needed for taking admission in PGD course.

I was very interested I studying more after my 12th but because of the family income and poor background my family couldn’t make study so I only decided to study B.Com in IGNOU Cochin with help of some known people so that I wouldn’t trouble my parents. So I visited the region center IGNOU Cochin and asked them how can I get admission in IGNOU Cochin for distance B.Com? what will be the fee structure in IGNOU Cochin for distance B.Com? The admission for distance B.Com was just according to the marks I had got in 12th and I also had to appear for interview to get admission in distance B.Com. IGNOU Cochin fee structure for distance B.Com is INR 6000 for complete course.

I did study in IGNOU Cochin and pursued distance B.Sc. which was a 3 years degree course in correspondence mode. I was not in a position to go for regular course in college so only I studied in IGNOU Cochin. I was doing my job so IGNOU Cochin made it easy for me to study also and complete my graduation degree. As usual I got questions which will be there usually in students mind before joining IGNOU Cochin like what is the course fee structure in IGNOU Cochin? How can u take admission in IGNOU Cochin? Distance B.Sc. course fee structure in IGNOU Cochin was just INR 10,500. Admission was as usual based on the 10th and 12th marks.
