Vipul Tyagi, CEO, and Co-Founder of Orphicy, talks about ONSET, “Quite often institutes and companies make the error of analysing the students only on their math and science skills in the quest for finding the brightest talent. We have deliberately tried to ensure that ONSET is not only an evaluation of a student’s math and science skills but an overall evaluation of the academic and decision-making sprouts of the child. The testing areas in the test are Maths, Science, Logical Reasoning, Lateral and Critical Thinking, Decision Making, etc.
He further adds, “We don’t plan to make this test a rat race but want this to be an opportunity for students and their parents to discover themselves and realise their academic strengths and weaknesses.”
“Our modules are designed keeping a holistic approach in mind. These modules will focus on extracurricular activities along with academics. We are sure that Orphicy students stand apart from their peers not only academically, but also in terms of their communication and interpersonal skills.” Adds Tyagi.
