Manidipa Kundu Student Expert 27th May, 2020

hi,

see age is not a bar if you are still have the courage and enthusiastic about studies, however you can surely go for nios then you may do bachelors course from ignou, see if you have interest in mathematics and want to learn about science and technology you may take science stream in nios, however after completing graduation you may not eligible for some government exams, since your age will be higher, most of the cases government service has age limit for generals are around 30 years, for sc/st/obc there is 3-5 years relaxation, but if you have good spoken english skills and have the knowledge of basic computer skill you can get a job in private sectors since private sectors has no age criteria for different roles. also you may go for llb course after completing graduation.

Hello student IGNOU is a recognized board and its degree is accepted everywhere but its not 100 percent sure that you'll get job in goa with the help of graduation degree as currently jobs are offered on the basis of experience and skills rather than degree so you may face difficulties in starting, you may appear in Government jobs examination for goa.

Hii!
Firstly, don't be confused between the subject choices. Take some time to analyse and choose the subjects you would like to study with maths as one of your favourite subjects. After graduation, you can apply for jobs in that respective field.
And Yes, students graduating from IGNOU are eligible to get jobs at Government as well as private sectors. You can also go for competitive exams such as UPSC, SSC CGL, Banking, RRB etc.,
Your certificate is completely valid.
Hope this helps.
