Our Achievements and Awards




The Winner of Royal Patron Awards (BICTA)

The Crown Prince and Senior Minister HRH Prince Haji Al-Muhtadee Billah presented Mindplus with 1st place in the ICT industry as well as the biennial Royal Patron award for best overall BICTA project. Tech startup Mindplus won both the ICT industry and the Royal Patron awards at the Brunei ICT Awards (BICTA) on 31st August 2018 at the International Convention Centre (ICC). Mindplus’ winning entry was their latest project Mindtrex – a digital learning application to help pre-university students ace their respective national examinations through adaptive learning, practice and simulation. Pg Mohd Khairi Pg Hj Metussin, Mindplus’ founder has set up a Mindplus office at Bandung in 2016 to launch their gamified education app for children Islamic Mind which has registered more than 40,000 downloads and they have worked with education stakeholders in Indonesia and will open Mindtrex to Medan, Jakarta, Surabaya, Bandung and Yogyakarta targeting high school students sitting for Indonesia’s National Exam.

Mindplus plans to monetize the Mindtrex application by charging on a subscription basis, positioning itself as a more affordable and accessible option to traditional tuition. Subscribers will first select a curriculum or exam, and will then be assisted to develop a personalized study plan which will then be broken down into daily workouts that are tracked. Mindtrex’s user interface is simplified into three main categories: learn, practice and exam. “The app is very focused on getting students better grades in specific exams,” said Pg Mohd Khairi who has experience running a physical tuition school and publishing arm under his family’s company PHMD. “We’ve curated extensively previous exams tests for the specific curriculum taught like O-Levels and SAT and analyzed their patterns. With the use of artificial intelligence, the student will be able to have a continuously evolving personalized improvement programme that can target their weaknesses.”
