Topchalks.com is furnished to provide audio-visual study materials, designed by the country’s few renowned teachers, for students of class 12th appearing for CBSE (Central board), PSEB( Punjab Board), and HSEB (Haryana Board) examinations. The materials are categorized in three sections – full subject material, chapter wise material and Test Packs. In case you are assuming topchalks to be an online portal where you can log in and get these materials for free, then let me break your assumptions – No, nothing comes for free and topchalks also follows this age old universal truth.
Another addition to topchalks’ kitty is the audio-visual lecture for CAT aspirants. Apart from these, there are two other segments – SAT & IIT-JEE- under the ‘coming soon’ category.
Money Matter :
For one month’s usage, one subject’s full material on topchalks costs Rs. 299( exclusive of service tax), a single chapter costs Rs. 49 and a Test Pack is priced Rs. 99. The charges vary as the number of subjects increase and the duration for the accessibility to the resource extend.
Does topchalks have a place under the sun?
Agreed that Internet has invaded every part of Indian life, but India is yet to become America to allow easy Internet access to a 12th standard. The number of Internet users at that stage is less.
topchalks may argue that these study materials could be a savior when one misses one’s classes, but a sort of virtual class can do no good. topchalks, perhaps, is a result of impetuousness of thoughts. using CATscan may not be that bad a choice for CATers but for 12thies, our traditional mode of real classroom lectures and hard copies would prove more useful. After all, from topchalks’ materials one can only hear voices and view few formulas and statements of a topic being explained but one cannot interrupt the saved audio-visual-only lecture to get a troubling doubt cleared. Only a real lecturer can do so. And for that one must be present in a concrete, real classroom with a teacher in flesh and blood.
