In what comes as a boon for the students of Government schools in the State, who aspire to crack NEET exam in their mother tongue of Tamil, the Chennai-based QuestionCloud.in, India’s largest online educational assessment portal, has announced today (20th Aug. 2021) that it is making its mock test series for NEET free for them.
Students can register in the portal (www.questioncloud.in) and try NEET mock tests in Tamil any number of times using their mobile phone or computer. The portal submits the results instantly, with which the students can assess their own preparedness for the NEET exam in an objective way, all without having to pay any fees
A brainchild of Dr. Akilan Ramnathan, a former bureaucrat, questioncloud.in has over 7,500 different tests containing over three lakh questions. The portal is developed by Blue Silicon Infotech Private Limited, an edutech startup promoted by him. As for school exams, the portal has mock tests from Class 6-12 students of CBSE and State Board in Tamil and English mediums.
QuestionCloud.in also has tests for different jobs in the Public Sector Companies, State and Central Government Departments. The mock tests currently cover TNPSC, other State PSCs, UPSC, SSC, IBPS, RRB, Banking and Defence Services Exams.
In his comments, Dr Akilan Ramnathan said: “Mock tests form an integral and important part of preparation for NEET exams – or for that matter, any school or competitive exams. They help students seek and interpret evidence to know where they actually stand with respect to their learning, and their goal. The online tests also give a feel of taking the real exam for the students, thus helping them gain confidence. We are making mock tests for NEET free to help Government school students studying in Tamil medium prepare for the exam in Tamil with confidence and secure high marks to realize their medical aspirations.”
He added that the portal is committed to bring many important competitive tests for higher education and jobs especially for students from tier II and III towns and villages who lack adequate learning support. He also quotes that “I myself have come from a small town in Tamil Nadu, and I had to struggle a lot to prepare for various Government exams. I hope that by offering online tests I will be able to help many rural students realize their dreams of higher education and Government jobs.”
QuestionCloud.in offers tests based purely on objective-type (multiple choices) questions that demand a clear and deep understanding of the subjects. Students can appear for exams on their own or through their schools. They can select a test going by their class or a subject such as mathematics and social science or even by a particular chapter in their subjects.
