With the past trends, we have observed that majority students looking for college admissions search for genuine reviews about the college they are planning to get into. And as one of the largest education portals in the market, we play a major role in providing these reviews to the students. Revicon has been launched with the aim of increasing the review count on the portal,” says Mr. Sahil Chalana, Founder of CollegeDunia.
Mr. Nishit Kumar, product head at CollegeDunia informs, “Along with the increasing number of reviews, we had to make sure that they are genuine and of utmost quality.
