As students, we all have to admit referring previous exam papers to maximize our chances of scoring the next day’s exam. Sandeep Laxman and Archana Lal, both teachers themselves founded BookStreet.in to help students with solved previous exam papers. It’s a exam paper solutions marketplace where a professor, a student, or anyone can write solutions to past exam papers of a subject of his choice and sell it through the platform.
BookStreet.in has been selected to be a part of BSE-Ryerson Incubation Center’s (BRIC) first incubation program. BOOKstreet is one of the 8 companies selected from India and Canada to be a part of this program. The incubation gives an opportunity to directly collaborate with Canadian universities.
BRIC is a joint venture between the Bombay Stock Exchange Institute, Ryerson University of Toronto, Simon Fraser University and Ryerson Futures. The team was earlier part of IQ Bootcamp – an initiative organised by India Quotient – a leading early stage fund in India.
Undergraduate students have vast courses making it difficult to study everything. Students depend on various study materials, including class notes and previous exam solutions, before appearing in exams. BOOKstreet provides solutions for past exam papers called “Smart Solutions”. These solutions are written by university professors, which ensures quality and accuracy of the solutions. Thus, making it easy for students to focus on important topics of the course while preparing for exam. Currently “Smart Solutions” is available for Engineering courses in Mumbai University.
BookStreet is one of the novel edu-startups that helps to ease the pains for students suffering in our current education system. We hope this Incubation will help the startup gain more exposure to the problem area being addressed.
