A new phone app “LernPrep” is being introduced by FortunaPIX, to assist fifth form students in their final preparation for the July sitting of CSEC examinations.
FortunaPIX is the company that signed an agreement with the Ministry of Education, Science and Technology in 2016 for the digitization of textbooks used in secondary schools.
The app, now available through android 6 and above and soon on iOS, will allow students to take mock tests that mimic final examinations and includes a self assessing process, providing students with Paper (1) Final CSEC exam that includes all popular CSEC subjects, a robust question bank with over 20,000 questions, ongoing practice with cumulative mock tests, instant feedback with insightful reports, performance analytics on scores and gamified experience with rewards.
“Students had to study from home due to the COVID-19 situation and we are committed to
provide both teachers and students online education. Our ABCDE device based education has enabled students to continue their education. We are extending the benefits by offering
LernPrep test app for Form 5 students who would be taking the certification exam in July.
We want to do everything we can to support the students to perform better,” Minister of
Education, Science and Technology Michael Browne said in approving the app.
Director of Education, Clare Browne, in endorsing the app commented, “Students of Antigua deserve the best and we always strive for the best for them. We want to thank our digital education partner FortunaPIX for offering us the app completely free of cost during these difficult times.”
Founder and CEO of FortunaPIX TC Ashok said the offer of the free app to Antiguan students preparing for secondary school exit examinations is part of the company’s mission to making learning personalized.
“We took one more step closer to our mission of making learning personalised. We are aiming to give students across Antigua and Barbuda direct and real-time access to best digital education. We are positive that LernPrep will help them perform better,” Ashok pointed out.
The app is available free to all students and teachers until July 31, 2020 and is available through Google Play Store by downloading ‘LernApp’.
