The app has been developed by NTA and seeks to facilitate candidates’ access to high-quality mock tests without stepping out. Giving mock tests have been difficult for students due to the closure of educational institutions and NTA’s Test-Practice Centers (TPCs) because of the lockdown.
The mock tests can be accessed for free. Students can download these tests and complete them off-line.
Currently, the app works on Android-based smartphones and tablets but will be available on iOS soon. Once downloaded, students will need to sign-up or register with basic details and create a free account. After this, they can 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.
The app also offers live support from 10 AM to midnight for the first seven days of the release. Students will also get a test report on this NTA mock test app. The report will have a detailed breakdown of students’ performance through which they can understand their personalised path to achieving better scores in their entrance examination.
Speaking at the occasion, the HRD Minister Ramesh Pokhriyal Nishank said, “This timely launch is designed to ensure that no student is left behind in getting exposure to practice testing, especially when Student’s loss due to closure of educational institutions is to be compensated and NTA’s Test-Practice Centers are shut due to the Covid-19 lockdown.”
