Its solution is very simple.

In your function defination you have given arguments like : def get_age_comp(self, cr, uid,ids ,context={}) here this function takes 5 arguments but when this function is calling from cron job at that time cron only pass  "self, cr, uid,context=context" 4 arguments.

So, to over come this make your function defination like below.

def get_age_comp(self, cr, uid,ids=None,context={}):

    student_ids=self.search(cr, uid,[('gender', '=like', 'm'), ('status', '=like', 'under_Age'), ('birth_date', '<', date.today() - relativedelta(years=20))])

    if student_ids:

        self.write(cr, uid, student_ids, {'status': 'get_card'}, context=context)

    return True

Great :D solved thanks could i have some help here, i will be thankful :D http://stackoverflow.com/questions/29573912/ovride-write-function
