Amazon Launches Exam Central in India; A Bookstore for Competitive Exams
In the early days of its inception, Amazon started with selling books online to people looking to buy various varieties of books usually not available in physical bookstore. What started as a simple virtual bookstore, ended up being a global e-commerce company with its own e-book readers and expanding across nearly all portfolios of commodities.
Amazon has gone back to its roots and launched a bookstore specifically catering to the needs of every student these days, that is a bookstore for competitive exams.
Dubbed as ‘Exam Central’, students preparing for competitive exams and job aspirants will be able to purchase their books and study material from the website. In addition to books and materials, the customer will be able to see exam schedules, important dates and timelines, tips for exam preparation, articles from previous year toppers and frequently asked questions related to important exams.
Noor Patel, Director Category Management at Amazon India, talked about the new section, “We are very excited to launch a dedicated Exam Central bookstore under the Books department on Amazon.in as a one-stop destination for all competitive exams aspirants. We have been witnessing a growing demand for exam preparation books for some time.
