Seven students who excelled in their Primary School Assessment (PSR) examination were awarded certificates by Mindtrex Academy during a ceremony at I Say Yatta, Kiulap recently.
The students are subscribers of the Mindtrex Academy, the first Brunei app to provide game-based e-learning solutions for primary students.

The mobile application comes with fun and interactive learning features, including gamification elements, soon-to-be released leaderboard and redeemable rewards system.

Mindtrex Academy co-founder Pengiran Mohd Khairi bin Pengiran Haji Metussin awarded the certificates.

“Education cannot wait. With the help of new data-driven and behaviour-shaping technologies, they believe not only that quality content will be delivered to the masses in a more efficient and personalised way, but technology can also be utilised to empower a child to self-learn, self-assess and master critical knowledge even with minimal adult supervision,” Pengiran Mohd Khairi said.

Mindtrex Academy assists a child’s academic growth in knowledge core subjects with access to over 10,000 questions and answers.

Mindtrex Academy applications have proven to be successful in helping primary school students, with a pilot test reporting that selected students from four schools in the country improved performance by 22-131 per cent in their examinations. The fun and interactive learning experience helps hold a child’s attention, and the contents are in accordance with Brunei Darussalam’s syllabus, approved by the Ministry of Education.

Mindtrex has exceeded 800 registered users since its release last year. The Mindtrex Academy full version is expected to launch in February, along with a data analytics feature for parents to track their child’s improvement, leaderboard and the reward system.

“The reason why I decided to use the app was because it is very effective, especially on-the-go. The quiz and test helped and the notes all digital,” said 5 ‘A’ PSR student Zubayr bin Haji Hussin.
