College Predictor aims to provide a realistic assessment of colleges and the courses a student might crack, for an exam score provided by the student. It takes into account the changes in exam pattern and the historic cut-off trend for each college and then provides a round-wise cut-off prediction for a particular college.

Rank Predictor is a tool primarily built for engineering exams that assesses the scores entered by the student and provides a predicted percentile or rank.

Predictors are available for 180 exams (including state-wise exam counselling). In 2022-23, Shiksha has helped nearly 3.2 lakh students find the most suitable colleges based on their scores.
