Nearly 90 percent of students participating in a recent survey said they want flexibility, innovative and interactive technology when learning and preparing for exams.

The survey comes from wyzPREP, a two-way virtual tool that provides multidimensional e-learning for prospective business students around the world.

With more than 90 percent of respondents having taken a standardized test in the past, wyzPREP sets out to highlight the importance of test preparation for prospective students.
In a highly challenging job market, results show higher education is essential in order to remain competitive within one’s industry.

More than half of respondents (60 percent) work between 30 and 40 hours per week, which makes it nearly impossible to find the time to prepare for exams in a traditional classroom setting.

Additionally, a majority of participants (87 percent) prefer to have access to on-demand study materials over in-person tutoring sessions as it allows for more studying flexibility, an essential requirement for most participants (59 percent).

“Our first survey shows a huge need for customized learning methods,” said Damien Bullard, co-Founder of wyzPREP. “Most students value peer to peer communication as it increases their chances of success, but struggle to find the time for in-person interaction. Thanks to our highly innovative platform, wyzPREP allows them to interact virtually, with both students and tutors, for a truly personalized learning experience.”
