ISLAMABAD Nov 8, (APP): Allama Iqbal Open University (AIOU) has introduced an tracking system enabling students to check status of their degrees and certificates online.
The status of students’ applications for provisional result cards and degrees could now be checked through the newly installed website (dts.aiou.edu.pk), said a University’s senior official. The applications received from the students are immediately acknowledged through the text message and email given by the students.
The new IT-based mechanism was developed to minimize the coordination and communication gap among the applicants and the Examination Department.
Earlier, the objections raised by the department on the students’ applications were only communicated through post, but there was no online tracking of those objections.
According to the official, the new system is time and cost effective, expediting the whole process of issuing PCs and degrees to the students.
The AIOU has recently introduced a number of initiatives to bring about qualitative improvement in the entire admission, examination and delivery system, under the policy-guideline given by the Vice Chancellor Dr. Shahid Siddiqui, he added
