New Delhi [India], Nov 14 (ANI- Business Wire India): Stoodnt, an education start-up based in Palo Alto, California, today announced partnerships with INME Learning, a leading provider of adventure-based experiential learning in India, and Method Test Prep, a leading global provider of SAT and ACT Test Preparation services used by thousands of schools in the US and in international markets. The partnerships were created to enable each student with the tools, advice and test prep assistance to realize their aspirations of completing their undergraduate studies abroad.

"Over the last few months, we heard from students and parents on the need to have local support on student engagement, in addition to world-class counselors and high-quality online help with test preparation. We are excited to be partnering with companies that, like us, put customer experience first and have proven results, provide solutions that meet customer needs and deliver end-to-end value," said Stoodnt co-founder Yuri Punj.

INME, based in Gurgaon, India, is a premier provider of expedition-based programmes, experiential learning and career guidance for thousands of students each year. INME has partnerships with premier schools across India and was recognized by Conde Nast as one of the world's leading adventure programmes for kids this summer.

The partnership enables Stoodnt to offer its services, platform and content to INME school partners and directly to students who have been INME customers. INME and Stoodnt will work closely on go-to-market, sales efforts and product development to deliver the best value proposition and customer experience for career guidance, study abroad guidance and college admissions.

"Stoodnt offers kids at INME the perfect personalised support they need to bring out their best. With the combined expertise of leading college counselors and our support to students to discover their best through adventure and self-discovery, we see this partnership creating an exciting vehicle for young people to move closer to their dreams," said Richa Saklani, INME director.

Through its partnership with Method Test Prep, a world-renowned SAT/ACT preparation platform, Stoodnt will offer a SAT and ACT preparation package as part of its career and college counseling services. Method Test Prep, based in Minneola, NY, is a premier SAT/ACT/PSAT test provider that helps students achieve better scores through a robust learning methodology.

"We are very excited about our partnership with Stoodnt," said Method Test Prep founder and President Tom Ehlers. "The missions of Stoodnt and Method Test Prep are very much aligned: students everywhere deserve access to high-quality career and college counseling, and a high-quality ACT and SAT preparation tool. Our partnership with Stoodnt will allow us to reach students who otherwise would not have had access to quality ACT and SAT prep." (ANI- Business Wire India)
