All the intermediate students throughout Pakistan are faced with one clear problem and that is the lack of teaching methodologies. Many Pakistani educational institutes, whether Government-owned or privately managed are stuck in traditional chalk and board methods, which results in boring lessons. This type of teaching method hampers the growth of Pakistan’s educational standards. While the cost of studying in good colleges and tuition centers are unreasonably high as it involves tuition fee, transportation fees and upkeep for the child. This can result in thousands of rupees in monthly expenditure for the parents.

completely new idea of education which is totally free from the bonds of classroom regulation and curriculum. The idea of Online learning can, without a doubt, create a healthy educational environment especially for Intermediate students of Pakistan.
