I have completed my btech but was not able to collect my final degree certificate due to covid restrictions can I upload my final year mark sheet or provisional certificate in place of educational certificates for sbi so
Yes you can do that and later you can email the boards for the happenings.But it would be better if you ask your college to provide you with the soft copy of the document as asked because on uploading the soft copy the matter becomes quite justified in the covid situation.So i would tell you to ask your college for the soft copy and upload it.
Hope it helps!!
