FILO: A free app for JEE/NEET aspirants

In a world of virtual education when it's challenging to connect with tutors, here is an IIT graduate who launched FILO, a free app for JEE/NEET aspirants.

The education industry is among many industries that have faced the repercussions of the COVID-19 pandemic. As the pandemic disrupted the traditional educational procedure in India, the digitalization of education strengthened. Even though multiple platforms helped students continue their schooling, understanding concepts and solutions to the problems in real-time became a significant concern. This is where FILO, a free app for JEE/NEET aspirants, pitched in.  

FILO is an app created by Imbesat Ahmad, an IIT Kharagpur graduate. FILO means ‘friend,’ so Ahmad and his team created a friendly environment where students can gain the proper knowledge and career advice from the tutors who have joined them from best institutions such as IIT, NIT, medical college, and some professionals. 

Imbesat Ahmad, after completing his graduation in 2015, has been devoting his time to tutoring undergraduate and higher secondary students across the country. Through tutoring, his major aim was to help students who want to attend competitive examinations and those who wanted to study abroad. This gave a push to create FILO, a free app for JEE/NEET aspirants to connect them with experts over a video call and solve their doubts in real-time. 

Another prominent element of FILO is that this app works well even on a 2G network. FILO app is also time efficient and saves 400% more time than any other platform, is secured and completely ad-free.

It takes around five minutes to allot the available tutor, and then he/she can take forward all the queries. We have more than 600 registered tutors, so, at any given point in the day, there will be at least 4-5 tutors online. If the query remains unanswered, then it will be allocated to a tutor as soon as he/she gets free. We have designed the app in a way that works completely fine on 2g networks also and in case if the internet completely goes off, then the call will not be cut. It will say, ‘reconnecting.’ Until the net comes just like the Whatsapp calling feature, explains Imbesat Ahmad

Another idea that fascinates students when it comes to FILO is that it ensures students’ complete anonymity. In addition to academics, FILO also focuses on imparting the proper guidance that the students require regarding their education. Students are connected for counseling lessons to concerned experts, which include students from top universities across India.  

FILO, a free app for JEE/NEET aspirants, was also noticed by the Central Ministry of Education and is now available on India’s National Digital Library. The team was also praised by the education minister Dr. Ramesh Pokhriyal Nishank, who appreciates their effort in getting aspirants exam ready.  

FILO has received good feedback and reviews from students. Since its launch, 4000+ students have used the app, and 30,000 minutes of sessions have been conducted by them, just in the first two weeks. Platforms such as FILO, which is accessible for free with lower internet speed, make this app distinctive from others.
