My old college kept my certificates/tc when I tried to leave. Will I have problems joining IGNOU?
Woorried what to do if a college does not return the certificates for admission to another college? Looking out for ideas and tips to get the cetificates back? Find advice from experts here.
When I left, the college kept my 10th marksheet, 12th marksheet and TC. They demanded that I pay for the rest of the semesters even though I had only attended one semester. I fell into financial difficulties and I couldn't pay them.
I tried really hard to get back into education, dropped the idea of medicine and joined an arts college. I was kicked out after I couldn't produce my original documents. Soon after I was diagnosed with a rare form of arthritis(Reactive arthritis) effecting the left side of my body due to a serious infection. For several months I could barely get out of bed. I was severely depressed and developed OCD the following months to add insult to injury.
Fast forward to 2020, I've exhausted all options to get it back, they still demand the money for it, financial situation has barely improved. I do odd jobs for people for very little money but its improving slowly. My arthritis is in remission(thankfully reactive arthritis is not a life-long disease). I'm also seeing a professional for my mental health.
I've decided to pursue my education again in IGNOU. Colleges give a lot of trouble to me when I try to ask for admission asking me why I have so many gap years.
Due to Digilocker and them(IGNOU) not asking for TC, I got admission in IGNOU.
My question is:
1 - Will I have trouble later on due to my certificates still being in my old college and me taking admission in IGNOU while I'm "technically still a student there".
2 - Is it a problem that my TC is still with them?
It will take me a few more months to get a loan to pay my old college. I am not challenging them legally because they are very strong people and I have no resources to deal with bigshots like them. My life was completely ruined and I'm only now trying to pick myself up.
Please answer my questions regarding the certificate problem and IGNOU admission. I hope a 6-12 month delay in getting my documents back from the old college does not break any rules regarding admissions(due to overlap of me technically being in the old college and now in IGNOU as well). I desperately need advice.
