Let's know who we are?

PrepareHOW aims to help the students via their efficient web and app based services where the students can find preparatory guidance for all the university admission tests and competitive exams.

PrepareHOW has thus far, conducted many informative sessions for the students in the bigger cities to elevate their sense of decision making in choosing a career. The startup aims to arrange sessions in the rural sectors very soon.

Presently, Team PrepareHOW is ambitiously working to launch their app for the students which would provide all the learning services to the students from mock tests for different entrance exams to study material efficiently collected from different experts on entrance tests.
