IIT students from Kashmir develp FILO app for NEET / JET doubt solving
24 Aug 2020

Post abrogation of Article 370 on August 5 last year, and ongoing pandemic, Not only are coaching centers shut, but in the absence of the internet, students with dreams of qualifying NEET, struggled with their concepts.

Many NEET aspirants had lost all hope to clear the exam.

Students in Kashmir face a lot of doubts either in understanding concepts or solving questions which are not cleared in real-time because they don’t have access to teachers at home. They either have to wait for their next class or search online. Moreover, frequent lockdowns and internet slow-downs in Kashmir further affect their education.

To overcome this issue, IIT Kharagpur alumni have developed FILO, an app which enables students to get answers to any questions related to their subjects (Physics, Chemistry, Mathematics, and Biology) in real-time from experts over a video call for free. These experts are a team of undergrads from best institutions like IITs, NITs, Medical Colleges, and some professionals.“This app was much needed in the valley where education becomes the first casualty due to lockdowns. Also, the platform will not just assist students to score well but will also help in keeping track of progress, daily assessment, personal feedback and constant tips from toppers and motivational mentors to keep trying for better,” Athar said.
