The founders had noticed that a large proportion of the government job exam aspirants are from tier 2 and tier 3 cities and they often face the problem of non-reliable internet connectivity and many do not have access to computers. So, Testbook came up with a hybrid model and it launched branded Online Centres with computers, internet connectivity and power backup facility for its students. It also tied up with local teachers to start ‘Testbook Smart Labs’—Computer infrastructure and Online Learning facility at institute itself. Keeping in mind that a student who comes from tier 2/3 cities, “Testbook Pass” facility has been provided by Testbook which has made easy for students to buy the online test series as cash solutions for them. Students can purchase the Pass either from Testbook Online Centres (TOC) or Testbook Smart Lab (TSL) or network Bookstores and can activate the unique code printed on it in a single step on Testbook.com or from the Testbook Mobile App.

According to a report by Google and KPMG, the online education industry in India is poised to grow eight times to become a USD 1.96 billion industry by 2021 as an increasing number of students consume content through e-routes. This sector, however, faces high drop-off rates as many online courses are self-paced wherein there are no points of engagement, which in turn result in lower completion rates.
Our awareness level of jobs and careers are very low. So, our job selection is often very poor. You will find that 1 million people applying for 100 open positions to hire clerks in Railways or some Govt organization.
“The lack of knowledge in terms of regarding formal education, awareness, internet etc. and also underdeveloped nature, especially in rural parts of India, people are less qualified for current Online Mode of exams. We as an organization believe in empowering each and every student who is aspiring for Government Job. Computer literacy is an important key aspect of this area. We are providing students Real Exam Environment along with computer infrastructure so that when a student sits for the online exam they should be experts with the interface used during the real exam.” said Ashutosh Kumar, Co-Founder, Testbook.com.
