  1. In Ignou prospectus date for OPENMAT XXXIX exam is 7th February,2016 . Then why it is changed? I didn’t get my admit card yet. Shall I wait for hall ticket? Please suggest ASAP. Thanks

    • Hi Nipun

      The date of the exam has been postponed by IGNOU to 28 February 2016. However, they haven’t updated the prospectus. The admit card is expected to be released around 18 Feb and you shall receive it by post, so till then wait for it. Also, IGNOU is expected to release the admit card online too, some 3-4 days before the exam date. So in case you won’t receive your hall ticket by post, you can download the same online. We will be uploading the direct link to download the admit card here as and when it will be available. Hope this info will help you. Comment further in case you need any other help from our side.
