The online study method is another mode of learning that has reached new heights. It wouldn’t be wrong to say that the pandemic has played a huge role in giving rise to online education. When the whole world went down, the only way to continue education was through online means. That’s when the world took education to a more advanced level. In the current circumstances, online education is now an option provided at almost every university abroad.

Students who do not have access to academies for the preparation for exams can now learn through online sources including study apps and websites.
