    I am a school teacher. Now i am studying in M.sc 2nd year. My M.sc final will be completed in sep 13. Now govt will provide b.ed in odl mode to all untrained teachers. So , as i am untrained i have to admit myself in b.ed next year. If the admission date of b.ed will fall before the completion date of m.sc final exam then what will happen(like b.ed admission date in apr 13 & m.sc final exam date in sep 13 ). Will my m.sc be invalid. Many teachers facing the same problem . ( i'm doing m.sc in distance from kuvempu university , karnataka & took permission from m.c before admission )

    As my knowledge goes, registration for two courses can not be done simultaneously. Nor is it permitted to register for another course before completion of current course. So, after M.Sc. result is published you may register your name for B.Ed. If you prefer to initiate B.Ed. course before completion of M.Sc., registration for M.Sc. may be made invalid.

    I think one can enroll oneself in two courses simultaneously if the courses are in open learning mode. Ignou B.Ed candidates are permitted to do any diploma course of 6 months, primary teachers who need both H.S. and d.ed/bridge course at a time. these two instances may not be directly relevant but may be helpful to find the answer.
    Besides I personally know people who are enrolled in master degree as well as B.ed from NSOU at the same time.
    I know my answer is different from my friend Pollo and so our new friend SOMNATH DAS will get confused. To help him as well as to gather better knowledge in this matter I invite my friends including Pollo to have more discussion in this matter.

    Dear friends,
    Study of one degree course and one diploma/certificate course at once is permissible. Study of one regular course and one correspondence/ ODL course is also permissible. Combination like one full-time degree course, one degree course in correspondence/ODL mode and one diploma/certificate course is also permissible in some universities.
    Mumbai University is now permitting study of two degree courses at graduation level at the same time in its different departments. Some Universities in Tamil Nadu permit to do one regular and one distance, especially PG Diploma at the same time. IGNOU permits one degree and one certificate course of 6 months duration simultaneously.
    However, according to Indian Education Act-1959 two courses cannot be studied at the same time. One can enroll for two courses at a time but cannot show it in the resume unless there is permission from Course Coordinators. One shall not be considered for simultaneous pursuance of two degree courses at the same or different universities. One can't pursue more than one courses as a full-time program by any chance. Such claims sometime may render both the academic qualifications "Fake" or "Invalid". So, I am also confused now - how is there provision for simultaneous study of two or more courses! <!-- s;) --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_e_wink.gif" alt=";)" title="Wink" /><!-- s;) -->
    So it is better if you could consult the University Authorities and get the complete specific details and disclose to them the details of two or three courses you want to do simultaneously. <!-- s:D --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_e_biggrin.gif" alt=":D" title="Very Happy" /><!-- s:D -->
