Rise in remote learning during the pandemic

With the rise of COVID-19 pandemic, all schools, colleges, and other learning institutes closed due to the lockdown implemented to avoid further spread of the coronavirus.

Since announcing free live classes on its Think and Learn app, BYJU’s has seen a 200% increase in the number of new students using its product.
