A few hours left for the Indian entrance exams tamasha to begin, starting off with the IIT JEE tomorrow. Those who’re giving the exam must be pretty wired right now. I came across a new web startup recently – co-founded by one of my Twitter contacts – and I wanted to share it before the exam for those who may be interested. I’ll just give a bit of information right now; leaving a more complete review of the service for later.

The startup I’m talking about is VoiceTap. The USP of VoiceTap is that it allows the common man to interact with experts in particular fields over a phone conversation. This is done by setting up a dial-in voice conferencing system where users call a phone number, login, and listen to what the experts have to say. You get ask questions to them, moderated by the VoiceTap team. All conferences are pre-scheduled.

On 5th April 2009 VoiceTap held a conference on strategies for IIT JEE featuring Abhinav Garg and Archit Gupta (AIR JEE rankers 3 & 4). You can listen in to a record of the conference by going to VoiceTap and registering yourself for the session. You will get an email specifiying a phone number which you need to call. The automated IVRS system will ask you for your PIN (mentioned in the email). Once authenticated, you can listen to the approximately 30 minute long conference. I do suggest you try it out.

The idea sounds really nice, but I didn’t get to participate in an actual live conference. There’s another one coming up on 19th April 2009 for AIEEE. I’ll participate as a user in that and then give a full review.

I wish all the IIT JEE aspirants luck for their exam tomorrow!

      I definitely hope to give a fuller review of the VoiceTap service after I try out the AIEEE one. :)

    I’m 15 years old and I’m studying in 10th standard right now. I want to study in one of the IITs. I would very thankful if you could give me a few links to any forums or sites dedicated to IIT-JEE.

    Thanks a lot.

      Even if you’re in class 10th, you should listen to the VoiceTap conference on IIT JEE. That said, GoIIT is a popular forum which sees participation from many IITians and students from top coaching institutes across the country.
