It is the best for those students who want to make a career in computer, and have no money.

Placements: Around 30 - 40% of the students are placed in companies. But I think this is lesser than before as the record says.

Almost 60% of the students get recurring.

As in IGNOU university placement is not possible but here I tell you some of the roles offered in the course. 1. Economist, 2. Data Analyst, 3. Investment analyst, 4. Financial planner, 5.

IGNOU has two sessions one is the January session and another is the June session.
1. If you enrolled your name in January sessions, your exam will be conducted in December. 2. And if you enrolled your name in the June session, your exam will be conducted in July.
So IGNOU conducts exams twice a year.
