Ideal for aspiring Indian students of engineering, medicine, management and the GRE, this website is designed to help those from Grade 3 to 10 strengthen their conceptual understanding of Maths and Science through self-assessment.
The website already has more than 1,000,000 subscribers in India already and those behind it are confident of replicating this success in the Middle East. The website already boasts over 5,000 subscribers in various schools across the GCC.
K.S. Muralidhar, CEO of 24X7Guru, said:
“This region has more than 120,000 students who can benefit from our website, which aims to reinforce the maths and science lessons taught in the classrooms. Using the multiple-choice concept, testing on the website is diagnostic in nature, application oriented and objective encouraging self-assessment and conceptual clarity amongst the students while at the same time honing their rational thinking ability and analytical skills.”
“With a long summer break and shorter days during the holy month of Ramadan, schools in the GCC have struggled to ensure they cover the full year’s syllabus. Now due to National Day and Eid, schools in the UAE are shut for majority of December. By using 24x7guru.com, students can continue to learn, make up for missed lessons and review their portions without stress,” added Khawar Abdulla, who is heading the marketing of 24X7guru in the region.
“We want to encourage students in the region to move away from the conventional ‘mugging’ and learning by rote trend that has for so long plagued our education system. The interactive design and format of the site combined with a fool-proof testing system helps students understand the concepts and fundamentals by making learning fun, challenging and most importantly stress-free,” added Muralidhar.
The Fun n Learn section includes crossword puzzles and Link n Learn charts for each grade level, just one example of how 24X7guru makes education enjoyable.
Test packs are available for Math and Science, for CBSE, ICSE and State Board curriculums from classes 3 to 10, with Plus 2 and International Baccalaureate curriculums to be introduced shortly.
Mr. Muralidhar added, “Keeping in spirit with the site, additional features such as Guru IQ, Guru Factoids, and Guru GK among others, will be introduced, enriching the overall educational experience.”
These test packs are valid for the full school year so regardless of when a student subscribes, they will have access to all the tests for that year.
By subscribing to a test pack, students receive 3 chapter wise tests in Math and Science, as well as 3 customizable term tests and one final test as per their syllabus. Once the tests are completed, students instantly receive assessment reports, according to their performance, providing results along with the answers and solutions to each question. To further enable students to identify their strengths and weaknesses in Math and Science, 24x7guru.com also provides psychoanalytical, psychometric reports as well.
“Results and progress reports are electronically sent to the parents and teachers so they remain informed and can assist and support the student,” added Muralidhar.
Interested students across the GCC can register online at www.24X7.com and get two free demo tests( 1 maths and 1 science) for their grade level. If they are impressed with what they see, they can subscribe using online credit card payment or by using pre-paid scratch cards that can be purchased at all major Indian schools across the region.
