Scores of students across India undertake several competitive exams every year. Many such aspirants are now making extensive use of technology to supplement traditional methods of preparation to crack many competitive exams. One such weapon in the hands of aspirants is the SATHEE (Self-Assessment, Test, and Help for Entrance Examination) portal.

The SATHEE portal has been started by the Department of Higher Education, Ministry of Education in collaboration with IIT Kanpur. The SATHEE portal offers quality education to every student who intends to participate in competitive education such as JEE, NEET, and various state-level engineering and other examinations.

As of December 13, 2023, there are over 60,000 students registered on the SATHEE platform, informed Minister of State for Education, Dr. Subhas Sarkar in a written reply in the Lok Sabha on Monday.

A 45-day crash course in JEE was launched on November 21 to support students preparing for JEE and other engineering examinations. The crash course has been curated by IIT toppers, academicians, and subject experts. The crash course is available in 5 languages including English.

The All India Council of Technical Education (AICTE) has developed an AI-based translation tool. This tool supports 22 Indian languages. Several workshops/Seminars have been organized in institutions/colleges to create awareness about this tool and its utility, reported PIB.
