Did you ever think there’d come a time where you’d miss going to school or college? Although, that desire starts and ends with sleeping on hard, woody desks. Lockdown has definitely opened doors for an alternate universe, one where you’d be up way before five minutes to class.
We’ve got you covered with six school and college life web series with just as many, or more, antics that you’re used to seeing in classes, canteens and corridors.
1. Kota Factory
Available on: TVFPlay
Directed by Raghav Subbu for The Viral Fever, Kota Factory, the first-ever black and white show, unveils the aspects of Kota and its coaching centres.
The web series, available on TVFPlay and YouTube, is a bittersweet and blatant attempt at busting and changing perspectives of exam preparations.

2. College Romance
