1 year degree for those who have passed 2 years degree (old system in India) and those who have completed 1st and 2d year of Degree

Hello Friends,

This question is repeatedly asked to me through my various blog post  and individually I have tried my level best to answer this. I am also aware that few private universities and their agents are trying to lure people who are simply degree mill and nothing. The worst is, some of the universities are shutting down and in some cases their officials get arrested. The worst universities are:
1. Sainath University Jharkhand
2. CMJ University, Meghalaya
3. MGU University Shillong
4. EIILM University, Sikkim
5. Vinayak Mission University Salem and Sikkim
6. Rai University
7. MAHER University (somebody reported it is offering degree in Kolkata beyond its jurisdiction)
8. Shobhit University
9. Manav Bharti University
10. Sikkim Manipal University (court case is going on)
11. ICFAI (violating territorial jurisdiction)
12. Jaro Education (through various fake foreign pseudo university)
13. Assam Down Town University
14. Venkateshwara Open University, Arunachal Pradesh
15. Jaipur National University
16. Jodhpur National University
17. Bhagwant University
18. Shridhar University
19. Swami Vivekanand University
20. Chhatisgarh University
21. Karnataka State Open University (violating territorial jurisdiction)
22. C V Raman University
23. The Global Open University, Nagaland (violating territorial jurisdiction)
24. Assam Don Bosco University


These are just few name, there are many such degree mills whose degrees are very inferior in quality and for money they can grant degree to anybody.

Then what are the options for those who have completed 2 years degree (As of now only 3 years degrees are valid for the purpose of higher education, public sector job and even for employment in few private sector organisations).?

Well, a degree cannot be completed in less than 3 years period. So, those who never had been to college will not be able to save year. However if somebody has completed 2 years degree of old pattern and if somebody has completed 1st year and second year of degree from any UGC approved university, they have following options:

1. 1 year bridge course from same or other UGC approved university. As of now following universities offer bridge courses:
i. Kalyani University- West Bengal (offers 1 year bridge course in Bengali, Political Science, English and History)
ii. North Bengal University- BA only

The second option is lateral entry into III year od degree programmes. Currently, various universities offer this programme however, I recommend only University of Madras and Annamalai University.

Condition: To get admission to 3rd year of degree programme, you should have passed 1st and 2nd year of degree programmes from any UGC recognized university. You have to submit copy of the syllabus from which university you have completed your 1st and 2nd year and the syllabus should be at least 75% common. If it is not, for the rest of the subject you may appear for exam alongwith your 3rd year degree subject.
I am posting transcript of the chat with one of such online friend (I have never seen him and do not know him). This will clarify it further:

Dear Sir,
        I mailed you earlier, i am suffering due my B.sc course is of 2 years(old course)
        I am a victim of CMJ university scam.
        Now I want My B.sc degree to upgrade from 2 years to 3years.

        SaiNath university is offering 1 years additional B.Sc   , which to upgrade from 2 years
        to 3 years graduation

       1)It That true..Additional B.Sc will upgrate from 2 years to 3 years ?
      
       2) 2  years from calcutta university +1 year from Sai Nath university =3 years graduation
          is it acceptable?

Govind Sharma
Hi from which university you have completed your B.Sc.

Online friend
Calcutta University in 1999, B.Sc (Phy,Chem,Bio)

Govind Sharma
And where do you work

Online friend
…… Limited..Software Engineer

Govind Sharma
I mean to say location
Online friend
kolkata
Govind Sharma
Then why don't you opt bridge course from Kolkata University itself
Online friend
I went to do...but they says...at least physics, chem practical I have to appear for one years in college
Govind Sharma
Ok
So you want to avoid it. Why do d you want to do 3 years degree
Online friend
Wipro,IBM,TCS,Genpact a lot of number does not takes...2years graduate...because USA 2years graduation is not valid
Govind Sharma
USA Canada and Australia need only 4 years degree
Online friend
I know ...I was rejected 2times from IBM, 1times from WIPRO because of 2years graduation. I am DOEACC B Level qualifier also
Govind Sharma
Are you aware that sainath is a private university and cannot offer any course outside the city where it is situated and such degree stands invalid. Not only this, the reputed companies avoid students from private universities only exceptions are few like Amity, VIT, Ajim Premji, Shiv Nadar University, Jindal global University, Nirma University etc
Online friend
ok...then getting degree...will not be safe?
May I go for 1 years course?
Govind Sharma
Prefer 1 year bridge course from same university you may look into Vidyasagar University too, if you can travel upto their study centre
Online friend
but the practical attain problem is there...my company will not allow so many leave
Govind Sharma
What was your subject in B.Sc.
It was physics. Chemistry Nd bio, right
So which subject you prefer now
Online friend
No physics. Chemistry Mathematics
Govind Sharma
Ok so you want either zoology or Botany
Online friend
No, Sainath is saying that they would do it in Same subject physics. Chemistry Mathematics
Govind Sharma
, so can you do B.Sc. in only mathematics
Sainath will give you degree even if you do not appear for exam
Online friend
oh...my god...is it?
means they are fraud...i have done b.sc, DOEACC B level...honestly..but..sai...do this..I cannot think
Govind Sharma
They are same like Shobhit, MGU shilling and CMJ anyway
Will you be able to do B.Sc. in mathematics?
Online friend
From which university?
I just want it to be 3years..
Govind Sharma
But you have to do hard work
Online friend
I have already done...it. I qualified DOECC B level...while....working...hard work is not matter for me
Govind Sharma
You have two options go to Netaji Subhash West Bengal Open University and check if they have bridge course
For their practical you need not to leave job, practical are usually conducted during weekend
Online friend
Their center is ...in nearby...to me..i will check...this week end
Oh thanks...govind ji
Thanks...a...lot
Govind Sharma

Online friend
Thanks...a...lot sir....u...have so...Help...That u cannot imagine
Govind Sharma
Always welcome and happy to help
3rd option although I am not completely sure buy I see it as a best option, University of Madras also offers lateral entry to 3rd year but it offers only B.Sc. Mathematics with the following condition : you will get exemption in the similar paper passed but for rest of the subject which you have not passed you have to appear and clear . It also has centre in Kolkata and its degrees are accepted everywhere as it is one of the most reputed university
the address for Kolkata centre of Madras University is INSTITUTE OF ADVANCED STUDIES, Alexandra Court, Ist Floor, 60/1, Chowringhee Road, Kolkatta – 700 020
Online friend

  1. Somebody informed following universities are also involved in scam
    1)TECHNO GLOBAL UNIVERSITY
    refer this link www.citycollege.in
    2)MONAD UNIVERSITY
    3)NIILM UNIVERSITY

    and I agree to him. He also informed that few of the above universities are "good" which is completely false. Hence, I am not posting the same comment. The requestor may do a little search. MGU has sold degree as far as in Africa also (where they do not have any basic infrastructure to take exam and evaluate).

    1. How can this study centre www.citycollege.in can be affiliated to so many university for offering regular courses from so many universities

      Delete
    2. First of all this is not a college. The said city college is a degree selling agent and may be involved in selling fake degrees with nexus from those universities. All the universities mentioned above are private (except KSOU) and all of them are under controversy. This is nothing more than making fool to the students.

    4. Govind,
      Your 3rd option wont work !! Because University of Madras does not provide admission in PG courses with a 2 years graduation... I am working in Institute of Advanced Studies (Study center of University of Madras in Kolkata) but this facility is not provided by University of Madras.

      Delete
    5. Hi Taushik,
      You have misunderstood. I am very much clear that for a PG degree, a degree of minimum 3 years duration is must.
      To bridge this gap (for those who have completed 2 years degree or at least 2 years of graduation course of 3 years programme) there is a bridge course and university of Madras allows lateral entry into 3rd year of degree programmes to those who have completed 2 years from any other recognized university subject to the syllabus should be 75% same. I hope I am able to clarify this.

      Delete
    6. Yes Govind, you are right..... This facility is provided by university of Madras.

  2. Dear Govind,
    University of Madras is having its only study center in Kolkata i.e - Institute of Advanced Studies,

    1. Please prefer a full time MCA even from a C grade AICTE approved institutes as most of the colleges prefer "full time" MCA grads (and it does not make any sense)

      You may opt distance MCA from any of the following institutes (in preferential order)
      IGNOU
      University of Madras
      University of Mumbai
      Bharti Vidyapeeth

  8. I have also done two year B.Sc. in 1984 from Burdwan University, West Bengal. After reading this blog I have approached both Annamalai & Madras University. Both the university has rejected my Lateral admission in IIIrd year and advised me to take fresh admission in Ist year UG programme. Presently Burdwan University has already stopped Bridge course. Other university such as Kalyani, North Bengal, Vidya Sagar universities are not having Bridge course in Maths. Please let me know how can I do bridge course. Presently I am settled in New Delhi.

  9. I am a B.Sc passed graduate(2yrs.)from burdwan university, but bridge in any science subject is not offer by B.U. Does V.U offers bridge course in any subject of phy, chem and math? plese advised me as you can.

    ReplyDelete
  10. @nambi EIILM degrees are invalid and for lateral entry if you have already passed those 2 years and the university from where you are appearing degree is providing it within its territorial jurisdiction then only the degree is valid
    For more details you may file RTI to UGC

  11. Hi,
    If you have settled in Delhi, please check with IGNOU its complicated but they may provide you credit transfer
    You may also check with Netaji Subhash Open University

  14. Hi,
    If it is a full time degree that means you should ahve attended all lectures in the university i.e. shridhar University then why do you need to verify?
    If you have purchased this degree from an agent, even if Shridhar University has sold it, they will refuse
    You may send an RTI application for the same

  17. Hi,

    My wife is an Assistant Teacher in Geography under BSc(Pass) category in a govt. aided school. She got this job through SSC in 2002. Before that, she completed BSc (Pass) and then finished B.Ed.

    Now she wants to do Msc in Geography, but all the universities have the eligibility criteria as 3 year graduation would be required for that course. However, it was 2 year graduation then in pass-course.

    Please advise whether there is bridge course available in Geography which will make her eligible for taking admission in Msc in Geography.

    Thanks in advance.

    1. Hi Debopriyo,
      there is no particular bridge course available but she can approach to the university from where she has completed her 2 years B.Sc. normally universities allow a bridge course on case to case basis
      Alternatively she may check Madras University which has exam centre in Kolkata if they can admit her to 3rd year on credit transfer basis (Ideally they should allow)

  18. Sir, I have done my graduation from Calcutta University with hons. in English. Now as it's not possible for me to atted a regular degree course I want to pursue my M.A. in English through distance education and shortlisted University of Madras IDE and IGNOU for the purpose. But after UGC published its guidelines about teritorrial jurisdiction, it doesn't seem right to do the course from IDE Kolkata centre, as that will be violating UGC regulation. So, is IGNOU my only option now? I would like to add here that C.U. doesn't offer distance education and distance mode programmes of other universities in the state of West Bengal are not valued much. So, should I pursue my M.A. from IGNOU or I can do it from University of Madras-IDE-Kolkata centre? I am really confused, as I heard so many good things about IDE. Please advise as lots depend upon it.

    1. Hi
      Netaji Subhash West Bengal Open University offers MA in teaching of English language, this course is more practical if you are not interested in literature.
      IGNOU is also an option if you are interested in English literature.You may also opt for MA evening courses from Jadavpur University if it is feasible for you.

  29. Dear Mr. Sharma,

    Thank you for your excellent article which is greatly helpful to many like me. I am still asking this question again, as the last comments were a bit old and may not apply in the present context.

    I have done 2-year pass course BSc with Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics from Calcutta University in 1994. Later in 1999, I have done a "2 Year BA" in Economics from the same university. (The second one was also referred to as "Special BA" by some people and used to enable the pass course pass out candidates to pursue Special Honours. However, I did not opt for any Special Honours as such.)

    Can you please advise what are my options now to upgrade my degree as a 3-year one? Considering Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics were my subjects, am I eligible to do any bridge course in any other subject, e.g., English or History?

    Also, if I get a lateral entry (into the 3rd year) to English, History, Mathematics, Physics or any other subject, will the university award a complete Graduate certificate upon its completion?

    Moreover, most companies require a 'Regular' or "Full Time" 3-year graduate degree. Will the one awarded by Annamalai (or Kalyani or other) university's distance learning program be valid?

    Thanks so much once again.
