Test Prep Industry will have to go for major shift in wake of news regarding conducting JEE Main and NEET exam twice a year.
Generally coaching institute finish courses by Oct/Nov/Dec, so we expect major chunk of student to give their JEE Main exam in January itself so they can concentrate on their board exams.
For NEET student giving exam in February shall be an issue because in March their board exams also start and various state boards start in February itself, so majority of medical student will give their NEET exam in May only.
The major effect which will be an area of concern for coaching institutes shall be computer based exams, which will create anxiety and confusion with students who are tier 2 & 3 cities as many of them might not be very well versed with the computers leave giving exam on it.
Conducting exams twice a year might be a tool by NTA to nullify the handicap of infrastructure required for conducting the exam on a single day.
The test series market which was major chunk of industry revenue shall be marginalised but Computer based test (CBT) will be a new business vertical.
Big coaching institutes had already started CBT based platform from last year itself now the tier 2 & 3 cities based institute will also have look for technology solutions to provide CBT platform.
Few companies are working in this domain for private sector clients like Ginger Webs CBT which has be pioneer in this field.
Gingerwebs.com CBT has been providing end to end solutions like test centres, Technology, centre management, Test attendance and following the best industry protocols.
Conducting one lakh assessments per month had delivery seamless product and service has been key.
With computer based test centre’s presence in 10000 cities all over India need to worry for latest change is uncalled for.
