Union Human Resource Development Minister Shri Ramesh Pokhriyal Nishank launched a new mobile app called the ‘National Test Abhyas’.
The App has been developed by NTA to enable candidates to take mock tests for upcoming exams such as JEE Main, NEET under the NTA’s purview.
The app has been launched to facilitate candidates’ access to high quality mock tests in the safety and comfort of their homes since there was a demand for making up the loss to students due to closure of educational institutions and NTA’s Test-Practice Centers (TPCs) due to the continuing lockdown.
Students across the country can use the App to access high quality tests, free of cost, in a bid to be fully prepared for the upcoming JEE, NEET and other competitive exams. The tests can be easily downloaded; they can be completed off-line, thus economizing on internet availability too.
The app will make available practice tests on smartphones or computers for all students in India irrespective of their level of access to devices and quality of network. The app also has an offline mode where students on downloading the mock tests can attempt the test without the internet.
The app works on Android-based smartphones and tablets and can be downloaded from Google Play Store. The app will be soon available on iOS.
Once students download the app, they will need to sign-up or register with some basic details, create a free account and then start accessing mock tests free of cost for their selected examination(s).
NTA plans to release one new mock test on the app every day, which students can then download and attempt offline. Once the test is completed, students can go online again to submit the test and view their test report.
The App’s major benefit is it works perfectly even without internet connectivity, which will prove advantageous for students even in areas with low bandwidth and remove obstacles in the way of large-scale online test preparation.
In addition to that NTA has developed extensive support system. “The NTA has also instituted live support from 10 AM to midnight for the first seven days of the release to ensure that any issues experienced by student are proactively addressed”, said the HRD Minister.
The test report on the NTA Mock Test App comes with a detailed breakdown of students’ performance through which they can understand their personalized path to achieve better scores in their entrance examination.
