It is a common trend in India, where every year, about 1.5 lakh – 2 lakh aspirants migrate to Kota, hoping to ace exams such as IIT JEE & NEET. Kota is famous for education, as it has been catering to students with top ranks over the years consistently. However, the delivery of education is so immaculately disciplined in the coaching centers present there that when a child joins an institution, they have to mould themselves to the new lifestyle of endless classes and indefinite study hours. This ‘coaching style’ takes a huge toll on a child’s mind, especially the one who has just been uprooted from their hometown. The distressing feeling of leaving family, friends, and lovingly abode behind is not well handled by students leading to distorted focus from studies. Moreover, it gets difficult for most middle-class families to abundantly support their child on a financial note, which has become yet another reason why parents and children from smaller parts of India are approaching a more accessible & affordable means of learning: ‘Online learning’.
The recent advancements in technology have made it possible for students even in the remotest corners of the country to get access to India’s top teachers for IIT JEE and NEET preparations. Edtech companies have transcended the boundaries of learning in today’s globalized world.

The inculcation of hybrid learning is established in these smaller cities & towns through smart centers, which have made it extremely accessible for students to get the best education guaranteed.
