What is transcripts?

Transcripts from Indian universities

A transcript is an academic statement. It mentions in detail the subjects you have read along with the marks or grades obtained in the respective subject.

If you come across the term Transcript of Records then don’t be confused, they both are the same. Not only this, the transcript is also known as Mark sheet, Diploma supplement, Statement of learning, Cumulative record file, Academic Record, etc.

Having so many names of a single document must be a very important document. Isn’t it? Well, yes and I will let you know why. The transcript is proof that certifies your qualifications.

Now you must be thinking, “But my degree or diploma is also proof that I have completed my education. Then what’s the need for a transcript?

So let me tell you there is a difference between degree/diploma and transcripts.

While a degree or diploma certifies that you have completed a particular course or a particular programme, the transcript is a document that covers your entire subject list with the marks obtained. But why would anyone need that? I will tell you that, but before, let us see what all information a transcript constitutes of.

Understanding transcripts

A Transcript is a detailed document containing the list of subjects, marks obtained, year of completion, achievements, practical works done during the academic year, etc. in a tabulated form.

You will find the following details mentioned in a transcript:

1.       Name of the student

2.       Name of Institute

3.       Name of the University or Board the institute is affiliated to

4.       Name of the course

5.       List of subjects along with the marks obtained

6.       Achievements, etc.

By now, I believe, you must have understood what a transcript is and how it is different than a mark sheet, degree or diploma.

So now let me explain why a student needs to have a transcript.

What is the need of transcripts?

A transcript is required when you move abroad for further studies. The college or university where you want to take admission requires a transcript as proof of your previous educational qualifications. This is a mandatory documentary needed for admission to your dream university abroad.

Whenever you are applying for any course in foreign institutes, look at their required documents. You may either submit a softcopy of your transcript along with the online application or you may be required to send a hard copy of the same.

Okay, so now you understand that it is mandatory to have a transcript if you wish to pursue your education abroad. Now the question is where to obtain a transcript from?

Well, you can get your transcript from the Institute/university from where you have completed the course. You can visit your university and request the same. There are agencies which can do this for you. You can contact the professional transcript provider and request them to get your transcript delivered to you. You will receive the same in a sealed envelope which will consist of the stamp and sign of the issuing authority.
