KARACHI – With the aim to digitise education, TikTok and ed-tech company Edkasa are collaborating with the Sindh Education Foundation (SEF) to expand the #ExamReady scholarship scheme to over 10,000 deserving students in the province.

According to a statement from the social media platform, #ExamReady, a first-of-its-kind STEM-focused digital learning project, was established in early 2022 by TikTok, Edkasa, and the Lahore University of Management Sciences (LUMS) to support online education and distance learning for high school students.

It was also mentioned that the #ExamReady scholarship project, which would award online study grants to 18,000 meritorious students from all around Pakistan, was unveiled earlier this year.

The collaboration with the Sindh Education Foundation will support the advancement of quality education in Sindh's underserved regions. Sindh post-primary students in grades IX to XII would be eligible for the scholarships. 

Over 500 instructional videos on chemistry, physics and maths were made available online as part of the #ExamReady campaign, which aimed to aid millions of Pakistani students. 

These included exam hacks and study strategies. Since their release, the educational videos have received close to 114,000 video submissions and over 558 million views on TikTok among Pakistani students.
