We have not restricted our focus to applied fields of engineering and medicine and the umbrella has been broadened to solve the doubts of students who wish to continue their studies in other disciplines.

Dr. Pritha Mukhopadhya (Professor, Calcutta University), Rupkatha Sarkar (Principal, La Martiniere for Girls), Pooja Bose (Principal, The High Range School, Kerala), Prof. Anirban Mazumdar (Prof. of Law at NUJS, West Bengal) and Dr. Yashomati Ghosh (Associate Professor, National Law School of India University, Bengal). They will speak on the various disciplines of humanities and the scope in them. Scope of CLAT will also be discussed in the panel.
The segments have been designed to include both professors and school teachers. Queries from the school teachers will supplement the understanding of the school students.
Due to the pandemic, the board examinations of 2021 are still pending with no clarity whatsoever about the implementation of the tests. Amidst these circumstances, this national webinar will motivate the students as well as their guardians, who are equally clueless about the students’ future. Usually, after the completion of the higher secondary examinations, which are conducted in a different modality, students receive a gap of one to two months to adjust themselves to the completely different modalities of various national-level competitive examinations, but they will be accorded no such relaxation this year. So, this national webinar will boost their confidence and will empower them with the accurate strategies to tackle the competitive examinations.
The webinar is not limited to a particular discipline and the umbrella has been broadened to include the multifarious possibilities that the students will encounter after their board exams. Given the limited time we have at our disposal, we have decided to make the webinar a cumulative process of learning wherein the students can send their queries to the Email ID: firstname.lastname@example.org or WhatsApp us at: 8335069501/7596040602, and we will answer their queries as soon as possible, even after the conclusion of the webinar. This is a huge opportunity for the students, guardians and teachers so that they can prepare themselves accordingly to the prevailing contingencies. They are advised to go through the flyer and have a prior idea of the panelists in the webinar.
