Due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic IGNOU has been extending the assignment submission date. Currently it was extended by the deadline of July 31st, but the due date is subjected to change only after the official announcement from IGNOU otherwise it remains unchanged.
The last date may differ for each program so the students are advised to confirm the same from their respective IGNOU Regional Centres. Those who have not yet submitted their assignments or application forms can do so at ignou.ac.in.
IGNOU Students have to write their assignments and submit to the study centre before due date. Due to the pandemic IGNOU regional centres offered email ids to submit soft copy of their assignments but with a condition that afterwards the students have to handover the original hardcopy of the assignments when told to by the study centres.
If any student failed to submit the assignment then generally he/she is allowed to attend the Term End Exam, but due to the pandemic IGNOU has decided that those students who do not submit their assignments (hard copy or soft copy) will not receive their marks, when the result is declared.
The Assignments have 25% weightage in each subject of their respective IGNOU program. It contains 100 marks where in different IGNOU Programs, some subjects contain 80 marks are for assignments and rest 20 marks are for viva. You have to complete the minimum words criteria to get higher marks in the result which will increase your performance report in your grade card and also improve your writing skills a lot.
If you fail to submit your assignment on time then your Grade Card will display ‘Incomplete’ for the subject, you were unavailable to submit for their respective Year/Semester. Once you submit your assignment, generally it will take around 45 days for the assignments marks to be uploaded and display on your Grade Card as ‘Complete’ when both your assignment marks and Term End Exam marks are updated.

After downloading the assignment question paper, you have to solve it yourself. You have to solve it with the help of reference books or any other materials but do not copy whole answers to assignments but read the answer in material, think and rewrite the answer in your response sheet with your own. Before starting to write your assignments you have to read Instructions for the IGNOU Assignments carefully to make your assignments perfect and considerable.

For e.g. if the total marks of the assignment are 100 then students have to get at least 40 marks to pass out. Just download your assignment from the website and start writing each and every course assignments by your hand.
No print or typing allowed in assignments. Candidates are requested to submit their assignments as soon as possible to appear in the upcoming term end exam.
Many students are confused that which assignment is to be submitted for June 2020 TEE, so here is the solution to it. All of the students have to submit only the 2019-20 session assignment to appear in June 2020 TEE. If your program has the availability of July 2021 or January 2021 session assignments then you have to submit fresh assignments to IGNOU study centre rather than old ones.
If any student has submitted 1st year or 1st-semester assignment of the Jan-July 2019 session then they can submit 2nd year or 2nd-semester assignment of session Jan-July 2020 to their respective study centres. If your assignment paper has not been uploaded on the website, please wait for few days and keep checking the IGNOU website regularly.
For writing the assignment you have to follow a format. Like the first page should include your details like your enrolment number, course code, study centre code, assignment code, etc. Below is a specimen on what the front page should look like:
Next page you have to attach a photocopy of your IGNOU ID card . Then on the third page, you have to attach the question paper of the assignment. Then from fourth page you can start writing your answers. Many students have confusion on what to write in place of assignment code; well you will find the code in your respective assignment question paper. For example, in FEG-02 the Assignment Number is ‘BCA(1)/02/Assignment/2020-2021’.
Now regarding the submission of IGNOU Assignments, at present due to the Corona Pandemic, you have two options one is online and the other is offline. Uptill now students would write the assignments and submit before the deadline to the study centre. After submission the study centre provides you a receipt, as proof of how many and which assignments you have submitted.
Now due to the current scenario IGNOU has asked its students to submit their assignments online by scanning it and saving it as PDF as per the instructions given to them via email or SMS. You have to save the sent mail as proof, if they do not revert back by stipulated time period or if your marks are not uploaded. You can mail them again and keep your original copies also ready to show them as and when requested.
If you have registered your active mobile number with IGNOU, you will receive notifications from them regularly. So the students are advised to submit their scanned copies online according to the instruction provided by the regional centre, which is either by email or else by uploading the PDF on the link given by them and filling up the details and submitting it before the due date.
Note – Candidates are also requested to keep their physical assignments safely because you may have to submit the physical copy of your written assignment to the study centre later, whenever you are requested to.
Once you submit your assignment, generally it will take around 45 to 60 days for the assignments marks to be displayed into your Grade Card. Still if you want to at least check your assignment status click this link IGNOU Assignment Status. On clicking the link you will be taken redirected to a page where you can see the submission status of your assignment.
Insert your ‘Enrolment number’ and Programme code and submit it. You will be able to see the submission date of your assignments when they are checked and approved. If not then it will display ‘Submission Status Not Found. Kindly check with your concerned study centre, if submitted’. So not to worry if your assignment is not displayed successful, it will take almost 45 to 60 days for IGNOU to upload results.
If your study centre has instructed you to submit your assignments offline, then after completing the assignments, students are required to submit to the concerned coordinator on the prescribed date. The last date for submission will be mentioned in the question booklet too. After submission, students should get their slips signed by the Coordinator.
On the slip, the name of the IGNOU courses for which the assignment has been submitted, enrolment number, and date of submission must be written. Students should retain this slip for future references. Also, they should get the photocopies of their assignments as well attested by the study centre.
