Q1. What is Stupidsid ?
Stupidsid is a platform for students to get access to university specific academic content and make informed decision regarding education. We started it as a college review website which today has grown much more from that. We have started with providing university specific academic content to students, the first phase of it being the solutions to the past question papers. In the coming phases we will add notes and also other allied services which will be useful for a student.
Q2. What all services this awesome website provides ?
You can divide the site in to two sections, Knowledge Hub and Study Resources.
This is the section which contains college reviews, admission processes. Complete guidance regarding MS in US. We have tools like grad school finder and finding similar profiles for students planning to pursue higher education. We have reviews of around 700 colleges.
This section contains past years papers and solutions to them. This solving paper part has now been thrown open to the users. Now anyone can post answer to the already uploaded questions. These answers get moderated by our in house moderators. Currently the subscription for 6 months costs Rs 199.
Q3. Is it only for Engineering Students ?
Currently all our services are for engineering students only. We do plan to expand to other courses too but that is only after we cover a good number of engineering universities.
Q4. How you or your team got idea of such website ?
All our services have been around the problems that we have faced during our college. There has always been dearth of genuine information and content. We found a big void in this space. There was no website which provided genuine college reviews. We were the first one to provide reviews from students perspective. There has been no website which is providing online content for university specific content. You will see that this sector is very disorganized. Also the local content available had so many errors in it that it was a really not possible to refer them. That is when we thought that we should even start with providing academic content.
Similar was the case with MS in US content. There are so many students who are planning to pursue MS but there is no good website which will connect the students or help them genuinely. With so many university agents around it is difficult for students to trust anyone but the students actually studying there.
Q5. Do you cost for services you provide ?
Most of our services are provided free of cost. We charge for Past years paper solutions only.
Q6. Does your website provide Question Papers or Answers for Other state boards ?
Yes, we provide Solutions to Past years papers of Mumbai University, VTU (Karnataka), Anna University, GTU (Gujarat),RGPV ( Madhya Pradesh).
Q7. What are your future plans for stupidsid ?
Our plan is to reach out to each and every undergraduate student in country. We want to make a consolidated platform for all the students.
