Top 9 reasons IGNOU assignment Status 2023 is not updated? 

Most of the time, candidates face difficulty updating the IGNOU assignment result.

Marks are not updated in the grade card portal. 

Do you know why this happens every year? 

From my personal experience, I have created a list of difficulties that students face every time. 

Now comes the essential question:

Let’s check why the IGNOU assignment status is not showing on the grade card 2022-23. 

1️⃣Front page or introduction page

without attaching the front page, it looks incomplete. 

You can check my article here about attaching the IGNOU front page and the acknowledgment slip.

2️⃣Missing Course code/Subjects code

One thing to remember while submitting the TMA in the study center is to write the Course code details. Else your marks will not update.

3️⃣Incorrect details

Ensure you have provided the correct information, such as enrolment number, subject code, etc., on the front page. Else they will not consider your project.

4️⃣Wrong question paper

Sometimes, students get confused in the session and submit the wrong question paper. 

So their marks don’t get updated at the right time.

5️⃣Study centre permanently closed

Most of the time, we find that the study center is not working anymore, so the regional office allotted a new college, but you submitted your assignment to the old study centre, so the process takes some time.

6️⃣Without signature

During the lockdown period, as per the guidelines, a signature is required on every page for online submission, but some students failed to sign.

7️⃣The PDF file you uploaded needs to be clarified

Only submit the project if it shows clearly. Most of the students face the problem while scanning the documents. You can get any scanner application from the play store if you don’t have a scanner.

8️⃣Delay in evaluation

IGNOU assigns tutors to evaluate TMA. Because of the large number of students, it may take some time for your tutor to evaluate your paper and update your status.


You may still need to submit your TMA, or your submission was unsuccessful.

I know you have another question: I did everything according to the guideline, but still, my assignment submission status of IGNOU is not showing?

Once you have confirmed that you have submitted your TMA correctly and followed all the guidelines, contact your study centre or IGNOU regional center along with the submission slip to inquire about the status of your assignment.

I know it’s not your fault. It’s the study centers that always work slowly. 

Either they didn’t check your assignment, or they didn’t send marks to the regional center.

Case study: How a student lost six months.

In the last session, I got an email from a 3rd-year student. 

I received a call from BA 3rd year student. 

He has been waiting for the assignment record for the past six months.

After finishing all the theory papers, he could not apply for the master’s course. 

Do you know why? 

Because his grade card was showing incomplete because of the non-updating of assignment marks, but he had submitted it earlier. 

So He failed to apply because the last date of admission was over. 

Now he lost six months. 

Then I recommend applying for the RTI application. After the application, he got the Marksheet within a month.

This problem is weird and could also be with you, so be prepared to deal with it.
