Amazon India introduced 'Amazon Academy' on Wednesday, an online platform that enables engineering learners prepare for competitive examinations such as the Joint Entrance Examination (JEE).
In January and April, JEE (Mains), the entry exam for engineering colleges across India, is conducted twice a year. JEE (Advanced) is intended for admission to the Indian Technology Institutes (IITs).
'Amazon Academy' platform provides tailored learning resources in maths, physics and chemistry, live tutorials, and detailed evaluations.
The beta version of the platform is accessible on the Web and on the Google Play Store and is free for everyone. The app from the play store has now been downloaded over a million times.
At planned intervals, Amazon Academy will also conduct live in All India Mock Tests (AIMT). These tests are intended to illustrate the JEE expertise to help students understand the complexities of the exam. Students can also benefit through shortcuts, mnemonics, hints, and tricks, equipping learners with the tools required to maintain concepts and effectively solve questions.
The platform provides students an All-India Rank for their mock test to determine JEE aspirants track their progress and evaluate their test performance through customised reports detailing chapter-wise time and strength analysis.
It also provides regular JEE tricks and tips through its 'Past Daily Digest' feature.
Mr. Anmol Gurwara, education director at Amazon India said, “The goal of Amazon Academy is to provide high-quality, affordable education for all, beginning with those planning for entrance examinations for engineering. Our purpose is to help students achieve their result while also empowering educators and content partners reach millions of students.”
He said, “Our primary objective has been on the quality of content, deep learning analytics and experience of students.”
This launch will enable aspiring engineers to better plan and achieve the winning edge in JEE. The online curriculum of the website will include more than 15,000 high-quality questions covering the whole JEE syllabus, mock tests including chapter-wise tests, part tests, full tests, and previous papers to study for the whole JEE syllabus.
For students of Classes 11 and 12, Amazon Academy has separate JEE Main and Advanced syllabuses. According to the statement, the content for the platform was developed by qualified professionals.
