What is the eligibility criteria for admission of Students to a course?
This differs from course to course it will be in line with the pre-requisite conditions from Acharya.
Every course comes with a proficiency test. Student can learn about the course by attempting the test (to check their level of knowledge).
Bharatiyavijnan.org will be the de facto standard for finding people with certain proficiency level in a certain BharatiyaVijnan subject.
Acharyas will be rated and students will be evaluated and the records are maintained.
How does Bharatiyavijnan.org build and nurture Guru-Shishya relationship?
Acharya can engage his/her senior disciples in teaching assistance, material preparation, evaluation, and mentoring newer students.

Any novel ideas from Acharya are welcome. This will be kept in mind always as to how to fill the gap. It is a learning process for everyone and can be addressed only through experience at a later stage.

Sharing of their experience among Acharyas and feedback from students will be reviewed, brainstormed and possible solutions incorporated to improve the effectiveness.
