Open Past Paper

It is about building tools to help Learners and Teachers

We are a small group of High School Graduates from Gandaki Boarding School and InfoTech Gandaki working on solving the Past Papers classification problem.

Currently we only support Cambridge International Examinations but we are planning to include other Exam Boards in the future.

This project started as a joke in our class when our Computer Science Teacher had asked us to work on real-world problems but later during the COVID-19 pandemic, we realized that it can be of great help to a lot of teachers and students.

Initially we built a parsing library that could read Exam Papers and split them into question sets. We had been distributing them manually to teachers in our school but now we have shifted all of them to an online catalog where anyone can access and use it

HOW WE DID IT

Initially, we started working on a python Library that could split Exam Papers into their specific questions. It took us about four months and three iterations to get to a stable and functional library.

While this did allow us to manually categorize questions and send them to teachers, our team started to look for a more efficient solution.

This is where we started to meddle with Artificial Intelligence for question categorization. Having imagined the amount of data available on the Internet, we wrote a machine learning algorithm and trained it. It performed the tedious classification work efficiently.

We then built this website to store all the questions chapter-wisely for every subject -- making it accessible for anyone around the world. While our AI predictions are not the most accurate, we believe the users' corrections will help optimize our algorithms for more accuracy in the future.
