Online Mock Tests: A Key To A New World Of Education

Technology has become the key to a new world of education. Online learning/eLearning has become one of the most popular ways of gaining access to education. Now, with the increasing benefits of online learning, academies that prepare students for competitive exams are also offering eLearning platforms to help students prepare.

The Civil Services Exam Case

Most of the students taking the Civil Services exam are working professionals. Hence, opting for regular coaching classes or even taking days out to visit academies for mock test papers is quite difficult. This is where eLearning comes into the picture: Most of the academies are now offering online classes and mock tests for our future nation builders.

Since the Civil Services preliminary exam is around the corner, candidates are expected to be prepared for any kind of challenges that comes their way. Mock test papers or test series help students prepare for any kind of challenge; time management, answering strategies, understanding of exam patterns, probable questions, assessment criteria, etc.

These mock test papers provide a clear demonstration of the actual examination to help students get accustomed to all aspects of the exam. In the internet era, where everything is available online, tests have gone digital too. Keyboards and monitors with internet connectivity have replaced pens and paper and have also cut down travel costs while saving precious time.

The Benefits Of Online Tests

Online mock tests have the following advantages, especially for students preparing on their own:

  1. They enable you to track your progress with instant answer evaluations.
    Gone are the days when we used to wait for days after taking the test for the results. Now, online tests not just save your commuting time, but also cut down your waiting time for the results. eLearning platforms give instant feedback and evaluation right after the test. This helps students identify the gaps in their preparation and start rectifying them.
  2. They offer convenience trumps.
    As I mentioned earlier, most of the candidates preparing for Civil Services exam and other competitive exams are working professionals who pursue regular graduation or a masters degree. Therefore, it is difficult for them to be available at the test venue on the scheduled date. eLearning has saved students in this respect, as they can take an online test from the comfort of their home at their convenient time.
  3. They enable you to save the question papers on your hard drive.
    Technology has made it possible to keep your important documents saved and confidential in your account for future reference.
  4. They offer accuracy and fair evaluation.
    Since these tests focus on evaluating the preparedness of the candidates, the answers are evaluated based on the performance of the student. These tests are marked automatically and thus omit any scope of partiality.
  5. They are easier to manage.
    To take an online mock test, all you need to do is just log in with a username and a password. eLearning has made the entire process easier; for instance, these tests automatically grade students, hence saving examiners' time and effort, and test papers can be accessed from any device (PC, tablet, or smartphone). Finally, the results are automatically stored in the Learning Management System, which saves time both for teachers and students.

eLearning has brought thousands of benefits, and the above listed are just a few of them. Online tests and eLearning platforms surely have the potential to take education to new heights of excellence.
