IIT alum creates app that pays for learning

A Bengaluru-based ed-tech platform Melvano has come up with an innovative idea to reward its users for learning on the app. The app created by an IIT Madras alumnus says it not only offers free learning content for JEE and NEET but also rewards students with an in-app motto for being avid learners.

Melvano says he uses artificial intelligence to analyze student pain points and creates personalized lessons based on the assessment. The application offers a completely free basic course, intensive course, question bank and mock test.

The company says students are rewarded with Melvano Coins every time they complete a chapter or take a test on the app. These coins can be redeemed later when purchasing premium services from Melvano such as live classes and personal mentoring by IIT Alumnus.

Founded in 2019 by Taran Singh and Sachin Sanodiya, Melvano claims that it is one of the fastest growing learning platforms for IIT-JEE & NEET aspirants with over 2 lakh students from across the world. ‘India. Melvano also received the Sri Chinmay Deodhar Award from IIT Madras for his innovative concept.

In 2021, more than 10 Melvano students scored 99 percentiles and above in JEE Mains. Deepak Nanda scored 99.891 percentile and became the best, while other students including Pulkit Gupta, Subhransu Nayak, Abhignan Chandra, and Ankit Sankhyan also scored above 99 percentile.

The National Testing Agency (NTA) recently said that the Joint Entrance Examination (JEE) Main for 2022 will be held in April and May, and this time students will only have two attempts to qualify.

The National Eligibility and Entrance Test (NEET), on the other hand, will take place in June or July. This year, the NTA removed the age criterion from the tie breaker policy for JEE and NEET aspirants. This means that older candidates will no longer have any preference in the ranking list. The exact date of the JEE and NEET exams has not yet been released by the authorities.
