  1. I am based outside India and need the transcript of BSC degree marklist from MG University Kottayam. Will they accept by post my application?Which address can I send the documents by post? I only need the marklist so should I still be sending the degree certificate too.

    1. It is a very busy place and not sure if you send by post it will reach right department. Better ask someone here to submit the application on your behalf. Only copies of certificate required, not the original.

    1. WES is an educational credential validation service for US and Canada. I don’t think it is required for any other countries.
