9 Miles - Your guided preparation plan



Nine represents attainment, satisfaction, accomplishment, and our success to achieve an influence in
our circumstances. Your preparation journey for your exam is also accomplished by stepping through nine milestones.

9 miles is a revolutionary study plan to prepare for your exam where your understanding, your speed and your difficulties are more important than the syllabus, the chapters and the books themselves.

Why the 9 miles?


How many times during your preparation you came across the questions:

  •     How do I prepare?
  •     How much should I do on any chapter?
  •     How to complete the syllabus on time and do revision also?
  •     And the most important, I wasted so many days can I still catch up?

9 miles is an answer to all of those.

Everyone on simplylearnt.com get their 9 miles to cover up. They also have a fixed time to cover them up. We are there like a buddy to make a study plan for everybody for each and every mile. We want to see everybody go through their 9 miles before their exams arrive and also help those who lag behind.

What are the 9 miles?
