Indian Civil services, the most prestigious services of the nation, are dream jobs for many young bright Indians. Traditionally, however, the best IAS Coaching classes are limited to the major cities. Students need to relocate to where these teachers are, and in most occasions spend years living away from family, without jobs, preparing for the UPSC exam. It is this concern towards IAS aspirants, which led Love Beejal and Kush Beejal to lay the foundation for NeoStencil, a unique live online learning platform helping such aspirants. Saying that Neo Stencil provides value would be an understatement. "We started our journey by providing coaching classes for the UPSC exam. Within two years, we have established ourselves as India's number one platform for live/online classes for UPSC," states Love Beejal, CEO, NeoStencil.
NeoStencil is not into content creation. The institute enables existing top teachers to conduct their classes live/online and extend their reach beyond geographical limitations. "The live classes held by us help the students feel connected with the classroom, even without being physically present," claims Kush Beejal, Co-Founder and COO, NeoStencil. Students sitting at home learn at the same pace as students present in the classrooms and they do homework at the same pace. This provides best of both worlds,i.e., comfort of online learning without the risk of lethargy associated with self-paced learning.
In the recently announced UPSC 2016 results, more than 100 toppers out of a list of 1100 were NeoStencil's online students.
The biggest benefit for the students of NeoStencil is the learning experience without a skip in their way of life. Through the strategy followed by the institute, students are able to pursue jobs, save travel time, continue living at home while preparing.
"Time management is the key to the exam preparation. I would like to thank NeoStencil for helping me prepare while continuing my job and studying from a teacher of my choice," opines Abhilash Mishra, an alumni of NeoStencil, who got All India Rank 5 in the UPSC 2016 exam. Good time management, the ability to revise, and comprehensive study material help students improve and better manage their preparation.
NeoStencil also realises the importance of a social connect in learning. "Through discussion forums held at institutes, we enable students to be in touch with fellow aspirants, and help them benefit from peer learning," adds KushBeejal. NeoStencil has become synonymous with a platform for quality education. The focus on on-boarding only the top quality teachers and their perfect mode of training helps novice learners to face the exam with full confidence.
NeoStencil is an enabler of top teachers. The institute is well known for the quality mentors who have a proven track record and whose past success speaks for themselves. "Currently we have partnered with 30+ teachers.Some of the all-India famous teachers in UPSC that we have on-board are Pavan Kumar (Public Administration) who gave 120+ selections in 2016, Majid Husain, who has 45+ years of experience and has also evaluated and set papers for UPSC, Mitra Pal (with over 10 years of experience in UPSC coaching) and many more," adds Love Beejal. In addition to the teachers, the core team of NeoStencil is formed of all IIT, IIMs, and AIIMS alumni. The team has keen understanding of technology and interest in making quality education accessible.
To assist aspirants in their preparation, along with courses, the portalalso offers a lot of free content such as current affairs notes and analysis, seminars by teachers and toppers, strategy inputs, and the like.
In the recently announced UPSC 2016 results, more than 100 toppers out of a list of 1100 were NeoStencil's online students. These include Abhilash Mishra (AIR 5), Suman Saurav Mohanty (AIR 9), and many others. NeoStencil acts as a complete prep platform with full courses, test series, toppers' seminars, current affairs booklets, strategy inputs, interview preparation and everything the aspirants need to clear their exams. "With a good rate of success, we are in a move to expand our horizons from UPSC preparation into State PCS, SSC CGL, UGC exams and Bank PO exams," concludes Love Beejal.
Now in this mode, where online learning is having a widespread scope, the founders lay their focus on launching a NeoStencil's mobile app. Although, the website provides a seamless experience on the mobile, an app would add on to their learning. NeoStencil aims to become India's number one platform for live online learning, and the go-to platform for quality education for aspirants.
