“Here we offer entrance tests for PG and UG courses in engineering and medicine. We will offer testing for other courses and plan to have an SAT equivalent exam in India. We partner with universities and help them to reach students across India – we have ability to conduct our tests in more than 50 cities across India. Our vision is to provide a single testing platform to students in India that is reliable, trustworthy and transparent.” says Mr. B.N.Subramanya, CEO, ERA Foundation.
