What do I do now that I have signed up? Where should I start?

  • Studying: Pick one of the courses you initially joined. (You would have selected these from the screen that came just after sign-up.) After going through the study material in the course, take a couple of tests to flex your mental muscles. Additionally, even challenge your friend to a test to see who’s got a better hold on the material.
  • Networking: For each category that you take a course in, you’ll find a separate forum where you can discuss, ask, and answer questions. You can network with fellow students and connect with teachers from across the globe. Not to mention, group studying makes understanding and retention a lot easier!

How can I best analyze my performance?

Taking tests is the best way to see how well you have understood the material and to plan your future efforts. Here are the 2 types of tests that are offered in all courses:

  • Practice tests: Tests with no time limits that can be taken any number of times. These are like intermediate stops to prepare you for the final...
  • One time attempt tests: These are timed tests that can only be taken once. We recommend that you take these tests only after you have gone through the material thoroughly and are ready for the final examination. These tests are priced sometimes.

Where can I track my performance?

We have a special dedicated area to track all of the studying that you do on EduRev. On the website,

  • Open up your profile home page and aim for the ‘Stats’ box on the right hand side of the page.
  • Click on ‘View Complete Analysis’ and see how you are soaring or sinking on EduRev in the ‘Analysis’ tab.

On the app, simply go to the ‘Profile’ tab and the first thing you’ll see is your analysis. Use these numbers, then, to improve your performance and test-taking strategies. We’ll of course tell you how effective your plans were in the same tab again.

What is level?

Your level on EduRev is a combination of your study activity, your popularity, and your generosity.

The more you scale up in these categories, the more your level increases. Again, by virtue of human psychology, the higher the number associated with you, the more it makes you seem trustworthy among your peers. So the next time you see an unanswered question on the forum, don’t shy away from answering. Your level could do with the boost up.

What is the leaderboard?

When you click to check the profile of another person, you can compare activities with him i.e. how active both of you have been in comparison to each other. You’ll also get to compare test performances with them. Hello to healthy competition now.

Can I share my notes and videos?

Definitely!

Simply, click on the icon upload icon next to ‘Home’ on the top right of the page. You’ll be directed to the upload page where you can upload a write-up, a document, or a video.

On the app, switch to the ‘Feed’ tab, click on the ‘Upload’ button, and contribute to one of the biggest educational communities online.

What is the comparison tab for?

When you click to check the profile of another person, you can compare activities with him i.e. how active both of you have been in comparison to each other. You’ll also get to compare test performances with them. Hello to healthy competition now.

What is the difference between a write-up and a document? Both seem to serve the same purpose.

For a write-up you can share an educational snippet by typing it yourself. A document, on the other hand, allows you to upload a pdf, a ppt, a simple word file- anything you’d like to share in any format that you see fit.

How can I edit/delete a document / write-up I uploaded?

Simply open the document/ write-up you uploaded. Scroll to the end of it and below ‘Recommended For You’, you will find two options for ‘Edit’ and ‘Delete’.

What sets the courses on EduRev apart? Why should I enroll in one here and not on another website?

Let us give you 5 reasons for this:

  • Teachers/publishers: We have some of the best teachers and publishers with trustworthy backgrounds and years of experience in teaching. They’ve spent years teaching in the classroom and their content has been used by millions of students offline before they started teaching on EduRev.
  • Quality: Once the teachers/publishers have created the course, it undergoes a meticulous review process which assures the quality delivered to you.
  • Money: All of the courses are kept at the lowest possible price. Out of all the options in the market, EduRev courses would be delivering the highest quality to you while being the lightest on your pocket .
  • In-depth Analysis: The detailed feedback related to your performance would feel like having a personal tutor with you at all times. You can view this personalized report card in the ‘Analysis’ tab on your Profile page.
  • Community: You’ll find teachers and students here from all over the nation (and some from outside the borders too!) solving doubts, asking questions, and befriending each other in the private chat section. We bet this will make EduRev one of your favorite internet corners soon enough.

These are just some of the starter points. We are certain you will discover many more once you start your own EduRev journey.

Do I need textbooks along with the courses?

There exists no one-size-fits-all strategy and hence, while studying from the course, using a textbook would be entirely your choice. You can refer to it as you see fit, compare to see where learning happens best for you, and hopefully, by the end of the course you would have built enough confidence to not use the book at all.

I have a doubt related to what I studied in the course. Whom should I ask and where?

There are 2 ways to clear your doubts:

  • Study Groups (Forums). If you are using the website, use the ‘Ask a Question’ box on the Home Page and shoot your query away! On the other hand, if you are an app user, go to the Feed Tab and click on ‘Ask your Question’. You can also go to the Discuss Tab and select an appropriate group for sharing your query.
  • Chat with the Teacher or maybe a wise friend you made on EduRev, ping them and see if they can help out.

    P.S. Be sure to be respectful, patient, and not spam at any cost.

Either way, don’t hesitate to ask. In the words of Confucius, “The man who asks a question is a fool for a minute, the man who does not ask is a fool for life.”

Where do I view all my courses?

Go to your home page once you have logged in. You’ll see all your courses right under the ‘My Courses’ section. Click on ‘View all’ then to expand the list so that even if some are hidden, they’ll magically appear.

Are EduRev courses only available in English?

No, we offer courses in a variety of other languages, like Hindi, Urdu, French, Russian, Marathi etc. The number of these courses is relatively less, though, and English remains as the most used language of instruction.

How do I suggest improvements in the course to the teacher?

Reach out to the teacher directly through the private chat feature.

If you find some delay in the response, send us a mail at support@edurev.in with your suggestions and we will forward them to the concerned course creator.

I can't find any course for a topic I want to study. What do I do?

Though we are adding courses and bringing new teachers on board everyday, if you have used all search options (the search bar and course catalog - https://edurev.in/search) and cannot find your course, email us with your request at support@edurev.in and we will have the course created for you as soon as possible.

Also, if you know someone who could create an apt course, act as the bridge and connect us with them! You would get your perfect course, the teacher will have the perfect platform for online teaching and so many others would also benefit from that course. This is your opportunity to create a ‘win-win-win’ moment!

What if the syllabus of the courses is not updated or in sync with my school curriculum?

Our Teachers do their best to follow the latest curriculum but if you find that the content is not in sync or missing, please do inform us of the same at support@edurev.in, with details about the problems you are facing. We’ll get in touch with the concerned course creators and have the changes made asap.

How do I unenroll from a course?

Open the course page for the course you want to unenroll from and click on ‘Leave course’. No hard feelings, we promise.

Are the courses paid?

Yes. Though the percentage of such courses is low (roughly 30% as of now). The remaining 70% is free and will always be so. The 30% is charged for since the livelihood of the teachers who created them depends on this income to some extent.

Can I enroll in more than one paid course?

Yes! Buy and enroll in as many courses as you wish. No limit on your learning.

For how long can I access a paid course?

This varies according to the course. For some courses, you receive lifetime access whereas for others it is limited to a month or a year depending on the course creator.

What is the discussion forum?

Discussion forums a.k.a study groups function as coffeehouse/ student center of sorts.For every course you enroll in, you can access the forum of its category by scrolling down the page. They are a great place to meet other students who are taking the same courses as you. You can ask about a problem you are having- material you aren't understanding, a question you can't quite get; share something you’ve enjoyed about the course; or help out your fellow students. All without climbing out of your bed on a cold Sunday morning.So, visit the forums as much as possible to get social and get discussing.

How do I use the discussion forum?

The forums are where you can post ideas and thoughts you have about courses, programs, and projects, and ask questions and receive feedback from other students.

It is an important social and learning element of every course and we encourage you to use it for learning purposes only i.e. do not use it for conversations you might have with your friend over chai/ coffee. You can use the chat rooms for these purposes.

What should I post in the discussion forum?

Anything relevant to your learning. Questions, doubts, clarifications, or text snippets that ultimately lead to a better understanding of the material. We wish we could allow you to post memes, too, but we know from experience just how productive study time becomes because of them.

What should I NOT do in the forums?

The forums pack a lot of diversity in one place. Hence, there are a few things we are firmly against so that a healthy environment is maintained for all:

  • Do not use the forums for casual conversations like hi/ hello/ good morning. If you do wish to send such a message, use the private chat rooms.
  • Do not post solutions to a problem, especially when someone only asks for a hint. Let learning happen organically.
  • Do not post disrespectful comments or remarks.

Any disrespectful/ derogatory/ judgemental remarks can be reported by other users. So, follow the golden rule and treat others as you would have them treat you.

Also, posting any inappropriate content might even lead to your banning from the forums for the upcoming 24 hours.

How can I edit/ delete a question?

Yes!

Sometimes in our excitement of asking a question, our fingers fly over the keyboard and land over the wrong alphabets. Here’s how you right this wrong:

Once you upload your question, you are directed to a new page which is actually your question page. Opposite to the question, are two icons- one for editing the question and the other for deleting it. Use the click on the appropriate

(App) Just click on your question and then click on the 3 dots right below the share option. Select ‘Edit’. And voila! Question changed.

What if I find something abusive in the forums?

You can report it to us using the ‘Report’ option. For every message in the forum you get 3 options- Upvote, Reply, and Report. Click on Report, specify the reason (offensive) and have it submitted. We’ll review your request and take appropriate action.

If a question is reported more than 5 times, it’ll be removed from the forums.

How can I report a user?

Although we hope it never comes to this point, if you do want to report a user, you can go that user’s profile, and below ‘Categories of Interest’ (right side of the page) click on ‘Report User’.

How can I block a user?

If there’s someone who has been bothering you after you kindly accepted their chat request, you can simply cut off all means of communication with them by blocking them.

Open up your chat with them. Click on the three dots at the top right of the page and select ‘Block’.

Bye bye, negative energy.

What payment methods are on offer?

We’re all in for going cashless! (and we know you are, too). Hence, we accept

  • Paytm (debit/ credit card, net banking, BHIM UPI)
  • PayuMoney (debit/ credit card, net banking, BHIM UPI, wallets)

What if my payment fails?

Payment failure might arise because of:

  • A problem in the Paytm / PayuMoney portal
  • An error in our system.

In either case, you will receive an email from us confirming that the problem has come to our attention. We will then investigate it further and set things right. Please note, however, that you won't receive access to the paid material until your transaction is successful. In the meantime, you can also mail us at support@edurev.in if this happens with you repeatedly.

Can I get a refund?

Sure! If you find that your purchase doesn’t satisfy you, you can drop a request for a refund within a week of your purchase at support@edurev.in along with your email ID, phone number, and details of the course you purchased. We’ll make sure to refund the money within 14 working days.

It's been more than 2 weeks and I haven't received a refund. What do I do?

Email us at support@edurev.in with the details of your purchase and we will see what’s holding up your refund.

What if I can't afford the full cost of the course?

If you’ll look through our offerings, you’ll find:

  • More than 90% of the content is free
  • The one that is charged for is in the budget of your student pocket money (even if you receive 500-1000 bucks only).
  • Best of all, you do not need to buy the whole course if you do not need it. You can simply buy a single document or test that is of relevance to you.

However, if you still find yourself unable to meet the cost of a course, you can email us at support@edurev.in and we’ll work out a payment plan for you. All smartness and adult.

What do I get in EduRev Infinity?

EduRev Infinity is a special pass that unlocks all courses under all exams on EduRev. With EduRev Infinity, you can watch unlimited videos, read unlimited docs, and take unlimited tests.

Though EduRev Infinity is more about quality than quantity, but if we have to put a number you would get around 250+ tests, 500+ docs and 300+ videos for each field under courses of EduRev Infinity!

And this is just the tip of the iceberg, any new course that is added over the year, detailed solutions with every question, higher preference to questions asked, early access to new features and upcoming deeper analysis are all a part of EduRev Infinity!

Why are we charging for EduRev Infinity? Also, why not keep it free with ads?

Imagine you have a test tomorrow and you are really short on time but video ads keep coming up before every document and test, taking away your precious time by showing you ads! That is not something we want for you and we’re sure you don’t like ads either.

So if with a minimal amount you can save time and get great quality, it is totally worthwhile to do that for your better score. And if you compare, it is less than even the books that you buy or the large amounts you have to pay for tuition or even those expensive online platforms but the value addition and the knowledge gained is pretty much comparable if not more!

Can I share EduRev Infinity with my friend/brother/sister?

EduRev analyses you at every point of your learning journey whether you are viewing content or attempting and we give analysis and recommendations on the basis of the same. So it will end up giving you wrong recommendations and incorrect analysis which might become a problem in your preparation. Also, if someone attempts your tests, you won't be able to attempt those tests which again will be a problem for you.

So it is best if you keep your password only to yourself and do not share it with anyone else to preserve your perfect experience.

Does EduRev offer a refund?
