NEW DELHI: Gurusikhsha.com, a Kolkata-based online K-12 education center, recently launched a self-assessment section meant to prepare students for national/international-level Olympiads. These Olympiads are held at school the level for students to compete with others of their kind or at a similar level. Such exams promote the learning of skills in such subjects as mathematics, science, computer technology, and the English language.
An Olympiad helps students analyze their strengths and weaknesses based on their performance in nationwide or international-level examinations. These examinations provide an absolute assessment of students’ knowledge and motivate them towards academic improvement. The participating students are judged on their scientific reasoning and logical ability. Self-assessment in such exams helps boost students’ confidence.
The benefit of Gurusiksha’s self-assessment exam is that they are easily available online. Students do not have to pay a hefty amount to get coaching and can only pay for the test and assess their knowledge skills from anywhere. All they need is a good Internet connection. Gurusiksha’s assessment section has numerous quiz options available using which a child can easily make his or her preparations for the forthcoming examination. This enhances a child’s sense of timing as the timer automatically stops his/her attempts. This enables a candidate to be proactive in choosing the right set of questions that will help him fetch a good score.
Launching the section, Mr. Dipak Jha, CEO, of Gurusikhsha.com, said, “Whenever you’re into preparations, there are certain important aspects that may bother you in the examination hall. There may be certain concepts that are critical in nature and you cannot remember those. So, rigorous practice of such concepts can help you overcome problems. After completion of a chapter, if you take an online test on that particular section, you’ll clearly understand where you’re facing difficulty and in which areas you need to improve.”
Learning concepts and formulas is the primary task of students, but, to upgrade their preparation to the next level, proper strategy implementation is very important. Attempting these tests will not only help a child improve, but also enable him/her to apply new techniques to solve the questions within the given time frame.
