Firstly, thanks for the almighty god to have showered his grace over me all through my journey.
Secondly, i would like to thank Santanu for running such a wonderful forum which has helped me tremendously all through my MCA. I would have visited this forum more than i would have visited Ignou site to get my doubts clarrified.

I have no idea of maths. I have tried a lot by studying at home and by taking friends help but that did not work. I am living in Gurgaon. Can any one please suggest me any good coaching center for Ignou mca papers study or any other way to clear these exams. Eagerly waiting for your guidance.
I had given 4 papers for percentage increase. But I couldn't check the result in term End it showing already passed and in the Grade Card it's till unchanged. Please suggest and provide me the mail ID of Delhi regarding this matter.
Dear Forum members, i just had seen the updated marks in grade card for the mini project and i am quite confused and i need some guidance. On my grade card, in the 'lab4 field' they have put a 0, which reads 'Course Report Marks' and on 'term end theory' field the marks are yet to be updated. I have talked with my study center co-ordinator and he has told me to wait for a few days and see, else he will find a way to sort out things.... now, what is happened? my viva went excellent and was able to answer and re-create all the code that was given to me. i am confident that my mini project went well and viva was good too. Kindly help on what might have went wrong. And what to do now?? stg44 ...
