The education department of Punjab government has taken a step towards the welfare of underprivileged students who aim to study in premiered engineering and medical colleges. This project is limited to none, anyone can use this but it is aimed for the poorer section of our society.
Under ‘Udaan’, students of class 11th and 12th from science stream will be provided with daily practice papers which will consist of multiple-choice questions (MCQs) on physics, chemistry, mathematics, and/or biology. These questions will be uploaded on Punjab Educare app and will also be sent to students through Whatsapp groups. Aspirants can also download these papers from Education department’s Facebook page.
“Competitive exam series would prove a boon for the science students, especially those who cannot afford coaching from private institutions, therefore, to help them prepare for various entrance examinations to seek admissions in medical, engineering, nursing, paramedical courses, architecture courses, free of cost, this project has been launched,” said Jaswinder Kaur, Assistant director while talking about this project. She also informed public that apart from MCQs, a doubt clearing session will also be organized by the school lecturers.
