  • Kuvempu University is a public state university in Shimoga, Karnataka, India. It was established in 1987 by the act of the Karnataka state legislature through amendment No. 28/1976 dated 29 January 1989 under the Karnataka State University Act 1976. It is located at Shimoga, Karnataka. I have checked and found that the correspondence degrees of this university are recognised.

    On the other hand, IGNOU is a Central University with regional centreas at all state capitals of India. It's degrees are well-recognised not only in India, but also outside India.

    I don't know where do you reside. If you reside in such a place where there is a study centre of IGNOU, I will advise you to pursue your education from IGNOU. The study materials of IGNOU are of very high standard and the examinations are held regularly.

    If you live in such a place, where there is no study centre of IGNOU but there is a study centre of Kuvempu University, you can take admission in B.Com through correspondence from Kuvempu University.

    Come on, have a fight. Don't shoot and scoot.

  • Of the two institutes, you have mentioned IGNOU is a central university with study centres all over India. The standards of this university are better than many other universities. So I prefer you to choose IGNOU. If you are away from the study centres of IGNOU and The study centre of Kuvempu University is near, you can get admitted to Kuvempu University, which is a state university belonging to Karnataka. The first option should be IGNOU.

  • 1. IGNOU paper evaluation is more correctly (strictly) done when compared to other open universities, You need to prepare and do your groundwork and study regularly. Because of candidates who don't things seriously and fail, often IGNOU get a bad reputation that it's tough.
