It is jam-packed with hundreds of animated videos , detailed and original questions and answers, hundreds of HOTS questions along with their answers, and thousands of practice questions. And it doesn’t just cover literature, we cover reading, writing, and grammar too, so you never lag behind.


This course is regularly updated, because these are fickle times we live in. This course will always stay up to date with the CBSE curriculum and is even now in sync with it.

What’s special about this course?

Animated Videos

  • We’ve split the videos into bite-sized snippets so it’s easier for you to stay attentive for longer and understand and grasp the content explained better. 
  • The chapter has been brought to life by our founder, Meenu Sethi, who’s been educating for more than three decades, and has been applauded for her voice on YouTube (barring the creepy comments). She has a knack for explaining even the toughest of lines in the simplest of words, turning these chapter into bite-sized pieces of cake.

Practice Quizzes

  • The results are presented instantaneously, along with where you went wrong and what were the correct answer. 
  • Each lesson is accompanied by a practice quiz, so if you’ve just watched a 2-minute video, you can then jump on to the quiz and check if you’ve really understood the topic or did you space out. 
  • These quizzes have multiple choice questions, multiple answer questions, and fill in the blanks.

Summaries & Reading Materials

  • In a hurry? Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered. 
  • If you just want to understand the concept or brush up on your syllabus, these reading materials will be your best friend.
