New Delhi: Amazon India Wednesday launched ‘Amazon Academy’, an online platform to help engineering students prepare for competitive exams like the Joint Entrance Examination (JEE).

JEE (Mains), the entrance exam for engineering colleges across India, is held twice a year — in January and April. JEE (Advanced) is meant for admission to the Indian Institutes of Technology (IITs).

The platform includes curated learning material, live lectures and comprehensive assessments in Maths, Physics and Chemistry.

Available on the web and Google Play Store, the beta version of the platform is free for all. The app has already been downloaded over a million times from the play store.

“Amazon Academy will also hold live All India Mock Tests (AIMT) at scheduled intervals. These tests are designed to mirror the JEE experience helping students understand the nuances of the examination. Students will also benefit from shortcuts, mnemonics, tips, and tricks, equipping them with the necessary tools to retain concepts and solve questions effectively,” read a statement by Amazon.

Furthermore, in order to help JEE aspirants track their progress, the platform offers students an All-India Rank for their mock test and assesses their test performance through personalised reports highlighting chapter-wise time and strength analysis.

It also offers daily JEE tricks and tips through its feature called ‘Past Daily Digest’.
