With the help of Altis Vortex, PhysicsWallahs goal is to strengthen the verticals of its textbook and course materials provision. The education tech unicorn has recently forayed into offline test preparation as well, with PW Vidyapeeth, launched at Kota, days after becoming a unicorn this June.

In June this year, the company also forayed into the offline training space, with its center, PW Vidyapeeth, launched in Kota, Rajasthan.

PhysicsWallah is focused on students who are preparing for the Medical & Entrance exams. For information to readers, the Indian edtech unicorn, PhysicsWallah, generates revenues through sales of its education services such as lectures and sessions on YouTube, PW App, and on its website.

PhysicsWallahs growth in revenues and profits for FY22 (2021-22) and its high-growth forecasts for fiscal 23 came amid struggles by Indian online education companies to remain viable, with online demand of education declining following the pandemic.
