The rise in number of students taking competitive exams along with the shortage of available tutors have negatively affected students’ academic performances. Although there are numerous online learning platforms available, most of them are unreliable. To add to the students’ difficulty, these platforms charge an unreasonably high subscription fee. Most students from poor and middle class backgrounds find it difficult to sustain such subscriptions for long.
