Physics Wallah, India’s top online education technology platform, has launched a new school initiative PW School Integrated Programme to provide Joint Entrance Examination (JEE) and National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (NEET) coaching to students in tier-3 and tier-4 cities in India. As a part of the initiative, the startup plans to collaborate with 39 schools in remote areas and set up the ‘Vidyapeeth School Center’.
The initiative aims to minimise the need for separate coaching classes for students in remote areas while integrating JEE and NEET preparation into regular classroom instruction. The cost of setting up infrastructure in each school will range between Rs 8-10 lakh, officials said. Furthermore, the company will charge a ticket price of Rs 2,000 per student under the collaboration.
According to Vice President Imran Rashid, the company will invest $10 million in this project. Of this, $5 million will be spent to set up school infrastructure. Another $5 million will be utilized to create top-quality content, pedagogy development and academic upgradation. The platform expects around 60 students from each partner school for this programme.
Last week, Physics Wallah forayed into National Eligibility cum Entrance Test—Postgraduate (NEET PG/NExT) preparation with the launch of MedEd, a “one-stop solution” for NEET PG/NExT preparation.
The programme is currently available for students in grades 11th-12th with plans to extend to grades 9th and 10th later. Classes will be offered live during school time and will provide coaching over the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) and JEE/NEET requirements. The main subjects in focus will be Physics, Chemistry, Maths and Biology. The programme will be rolled out across 34 districts in 10 states, including Uttar Pradesh, Uttarakhand, Bihar, Assam, Jharkhand, Maharashtra, Gujarat Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan, and Haryana.
Founded as a bootstrapped company in mid-2020 by Alakh Pandey and Prateek Maheshwari, Physics Wallah strives to make the learning experience comprehensive and accessible for students of all sections of society. The platform believes in empowering every student who couldn’t dream of a promising career in the engineering and medical field earlier. It offers both free and paid online courses to students. The startup also provides offline and hybrid coaching through its Vidyapeeth and Pathshala across India. Endeavouring to provide 360-degree learning, the platform has also launched upskilling courses for students and working professionals to learn in-demand skills and become industry-ready for today’s jobs. PW’s exemplary JEE/NEET results testify to its commitment to serving students with the best quality coaching at affordable prices.
