Why are there difficulties in obtaining marksheets and certificates?We often come across a query in our Ask Expert section in which a distressed student seeks guidance for obtaining a marksheet or a transfer certificate or even the all-important Degree certificate. A student's family may suddenly move from one city to another or due to a prolonged illness the student was unable to collect the originals. There seem to be hurdles for those who also seek duplicates, having lost the originals. Why do school and college authorities make it difficult for such students to obtain their academic-related documents? Can't they be more considerate and helpful? Surely they should realize that such documents are not just for admission to the next phase of education, but will also be required later when applying for a job.
Have you ever faced this scenario either for yourself or for one of your kids or siblings?
