About Us

What we are:

Ignus is a social entrepreneurship venture with its major focus in alleviating the problem of migration of students in smaller cities of India for a better pre-university education.The Pre-University years are a crucial time in a student’s life and and in this competition fierce era an inefficient and improper learning process can deprive even the most talented ones of a good university selection.To make matters worse,such an elite level of training is only available at select locations which turn out to be expensive and a major burden for the lower earning strata of Tier II cities.We are geared towards providing an equal opportunity for this demographic using technology oriented learning.We provide complete learning packages which include video lectures,sample questions,solutions,tests and pre-lecture reading.The lectures and questions are provided by some of the best teachers and faculties in the country.In a way we bring the superior education opportunities to the smaller towns at a much more affordable price.
