Benjamin Franklin once said, if you fail to plan, you’re planning to fail. The University Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) is the most “dreaded” examination in Nigeria secondary school and failing it is a nightmare many students don’t wish to have.
But then, preparing for this examination is also a tug of war and struggle for many students. This is why SimbiBot was founded by Abdulazeez Ogunjobi (CEO) and Sodeeq Elusoji (CTO) on January 17, 2018.
SimbiBot is an online platform that uses artificial intelligence to help prepare students for UTME and post UTME.
This platform uses Facebook chatbot to create an interesting and interactive environment where students can prepare for exams using past questions and solutions.
Navigation on the platform is very easy as no registration is required and all the user needs to do is to click the get started button which redirects them to facebook messenger where learning begins.
In a week after launch, Simbi has been able to engage 500+ recurring users and has recorded over 9000 conversations, this statistic gives us the assurance that SimbiBot is a solution Nigerian students have been longing for”.
The startup claims to stand out amidst other platforms as it boasts of its quick response and interactive bot which also offers study tips and guides to students on their course of study.
