There is a fundamental difference between opportunity cost and marginal cost
1. Opportunity cost is the next best thing that you give up to take up a particular endevour.
2. Marginal cost is additional investment that you put in to get additional benefit. You take action only when marginal benefit is greater than marginal cost

2.
Here you are just re-allocating resources, no additional investment is being done (marginal cost). So the concept does not stand.

3.
Opportunity costs have both tangible (money) and intangible (time) components. So it is not only all the money that you will ever lose but also the things that you would have done with the time you lost, here you can go as far as you imagination can take you, but at the same time it has to be realistic.

4.
For this example oddly I believe opportunity costs and marginal costs are the same because you are putting in and additional investment (opportunity cost) to get additional benefit (SPJIMR cert, lifelong opportunities)


My point of view. Hope it resolves your doubts
