Meritnation has announced launching a new website dedicated to students of class I to V. Called Meritnation Junior, the new website focusses on 'gamification of education' as well as helping parents guide their kids in early years. Unlike the main meritnation website, the Junior has more “fun” elements with a special focus on making learning easier. Meritnation has also launched a Math Tables app for kids. The app is currently available for iOS users only.
Meritnation Junior features a range of subjects such as English, Maths, Hindi, General Knowledge and Olympiad. It has unlimited questions to solve across subjects/topics, over 1,000 videos, over 5,00 topics and downloadable worksheets.
For kids, Meritnation Junior has a reward programme that is supposed to help encourage young learners. There are short video tutorials for children as well. Speaking of fun elements, the site has Potu, the mascot who helps make learning fun. A 'scorometer' on the website indicates the proficiency level of a child has reached on a given topic. The meter indicates 'beginner', advance and proficient.

For parents, Meritnation Junior has a special 'Parents Zone', which can be accessed through a separate log in. The zone allows parents to create tests and assign them to children. They can monitor their child's performance through comprehensive reports.
