PUNE: A mock test for the Joint Entrance Exam (JEE) for admission to the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) has been formed by a group of ex-IITians.

They formed an online education company, DronStudy in 2010 and have uploaded all related study material and test papers for preparation on the website, which can be accessed for free.

In the IIT-Main examination, students have an option to write the exam via the online or offline mode. DronStudy has prepared a unique test series, which will give students the exact idea of IIT-

Main examination pattern. The look and feel of the test user interface has been made very similar to the actual examination. This will give the students an advantage of not getting into a totally new environment.

To prepare the students well, the DronStudy free online test series has over 120 mock tests having over 10,000 questions to practice.

One of the founders, Neetin Agarwal, who is a BTech from IIT Madras, said, “The new generation is tech savvy and online education is the future of India. We believe online education will be helpful especially for students, who can’t afford the hefty fee of the coaching classes.” They believe that online education, not only saves fees but also saves time. Also, as there is no IIT in Pune and many students go to Rajasthan for preparation, with the online material, a lot of other expenses like travelling, lodging and boarding, etc can be avoided.

“Being an IITian, I know and have experienced the pain and pressure of the exam. I believe even if the life of a single student changes with the help of our initiative, it will surely bring a revolutionary change in the education system. This will motivate and help thousands of underprivileged village students to dream big,” added Agarwal.
