“The roots of education are bitter, but the fruit is sweet”. –Aristotle.

It seems like the fruit is sometimes bitter too when we talk about Indian Education System. There are many reasons why Indian Education System is not in some of the “Top education systems in the world”. In India, education is a synonym with marks. Teachers and parents are not interested in interests of a student but marks. Marks are all they want from a student. To them, it doesn’t matter if kids are getting what they are being taught. Indian Education system needs to be blamed. Here are reasons why-

An average Indian student needs to study a huge amount of syllabus. The syllabus is so huge that the student can’t explore things out of it. Those never-ending assignments which almost takes a day to complete. By the time the student finishes it, it is bedtime. These things result in making bad career decisions since the student never explored his or her interests. As a result of which the future is not what it ought to be. Moreover the parents and teachers don’t have enough knowledge about career opportunities for a student. They want the kid to get settled with security and money. As soon as the kid starts his career in the wrong field he/she realizes that it was never meant for him/her. Choosing the wrong career has many disadvantages like slow growth, failure, not getting satisfaction and many more.

Edvizo is trying to solve many of such issues for many students out there. Edvizo brings you experts from IIMs, IITs, AIIMS and former IAS officers who will guide you so that you make right career decision to excel in future. They will guide you according to your abilities and interests to achieve the perfect choice for you.

In most of the schools, teachers rush through the syllabus. Their goal is to somehow finish the syllabus irrespective of the fact that the students aren’t getting it. Teach what is given in the syllabus. Copy the formulas, equations and theories from the textbook to the blackboard. This problem forces a student to do private tuitions. The problem does not end here. Now there are number of institutions. The banners and overwhelming ads of the coaching institutes attract many students. Students without even realizing how good or bad the teaching might be in that institute, take admission. As soon as they realize that the teaching or faculty isn’t benefiting them, it’s too late. All the money and time invested goes in vain.

Don’t worry, Edvizo has the solution to this problem. Edvizo’s app and website contains necessary information about many coaching institutes out there which helps many students picking the right one for them so that the money and time goes in the right place. Edvizo ensures that the reviews from the students are there on the profile of the institutes. Institutes that are under Edvizo get the facility to express the exam results, attendance and information to parents and students through its app.

A student may be a topper in his/her school but when there are toppers from all schools at the same place then it’s tough to tell. A great competition is there. Along with that many problems went unnoticed like peer pressure, high expectations from the family and so on. Nobody looks out for the kids having these issues. Edvizo conducts anonymous counseling in which students can express their problems or feeling beyond academics. Edvizo also assists them with career counseling and motivational stuff from time to time.

Edvizo is also helping institutions working in a digital way. This helps to manage things easily and saves a lot of time. So far Edvizo has provided free IMS management solutions to more than 900 institutions across 5 cities. Edvizo is growing day by day helping thousands of students across the nation choosing the right career option for them. It is helping students getting verified information about many coaching institutions which helps them finding and sorting out the best one according to their needs. Edvizo has information of about 1700 institutions in the country. Over 5000 students have taken admission through Edvizo in just one month. It is estimated that Edvizo had 1.5 lakhs website hits over a period of two months. With the guidance of two eminent personalities who are well known in the field of education, a retired professor of IIT Kanpur- HC Verma and the director of IIT Guwahati- Gautam Biswas and its team members from IITs, NITs, IIMs and many prestigious universities, Edvizo is making dreams come true.

Choosing right career is very crucial. It gives a sense of direction to our life. It provides structure to our life.

“Choose the job you love and you will never have to work a day in your life”.
