EduGorilla uses AI-powered software that, through Predictive Analysis, assesses the demand for exams out of about 4000+ Competitive Exams held every year throughout the country and sorts them as per their priority demand. Subsequently, ML-based Engine cross-references the recent changes in the exam syllabus and pattern and cross-references it with the previous year pattern to generate quality content.
The process of assessment, creation and distribution of the mock tests take 5 to 6 days, as opposed to the 30 days timeframe through a conventional approach. This approach gives EduGorilla a lengthy sales window, as a result of which its portal and app are able to gain traction.
