Indian students will soon have access to a self-assessment tool thanks to the University Grants Commission (UGC). Union education minister Dharmendra Pradhan will develop a self-paced interactive learning and assessment website for students to use while they get ready for competitive and other exams, according to UGC chief M. Jagadesh Kumar. SATHEE, which stands for Self Assessment Test and Help for Entrance Examinations, would be the name of the new platform.
The SATHEE websites for the National Eligibility Completion Entrance Test (NEET) and the Joint Entrance Examination (JEE) have already been developed. The websites have subject-specific instructors and advice on how to ace the admission exam, and they are interactive in character. Via a Google form that is available on the relevant websites, students can choose the subject they wish to learn and get their questions answered as well.
The platform is created through a joint venture of IIT Kanpur and Ministry of Education. Giving students a self-paced interactive learning and evaluation platform will be the main goal of this new platform as students get ready for various competitive exams.
The SATHEE platform assist the youngsters in society who can't afford the expensive entrance test assistance and coaching," UGC Chairperson Kumar tweeted. Through watching videos created by IIT and IISc faculty members, SATHEE seeks to help students master the ideas and concentrate on their weak topics so they feel confidence to take any tests, the professor continued.
The UGC chairman also provided the launch event's official YouTube URL, which will go live on March 6. SATHEE is expected to be introduced on March 6 at 10:45 AM by Minister of Education Dharmendra Pradhan, according to UGC Chairman.
In the meantime, Pradhan and Jason Clare, his Australian counterpart, will shortly sign a contract to increase student mobility between India and Australia. Its partnership with India will be the "broadest and most favorable recognition arrangement," according to a recent statement by Clare. Australia's minister of education is now in India until March 3. The meeting's main objective will be to promote cooperation and partnerships amongst national institutions.
