    Levels

    When you get registered into Sookshmas, you will be in Level 1. Based on your score and mentor occurence, you will be promoted to the next higher level and this continues till you reaches Level 16.

    Mentor Selection

    Every week the top highest scorers are selected for the particular Account tag. Those top scorers get the Mentor request and if they accept, they will be considered as the Mentor. This process will be done only when the same Account tag is used by 50 users.

    1 Mentor is selected for 50 users having same account tag. Suppose there are 500 users, in that 400 users are having CBSE tag and 100 users are having Karnataka State Board tag as their Account tag, then the no.of mentors required for CBSE tag are 8 and Karnataka State Board tag are 2.

    Promotion

    For every level there is a fixed score and mentor occurrence. If you satisfy the score and mentor occurrence for that particular level, you will get the Promotion request and if you accept, you will be promoted to the next level.

    For example, if you satisfy the score and mentor occurrence for Level 1 in the tag CBSE, you will be promoted to the Level 2. In the same way, you can get promoted to the next levels based on the score and mentor occurrence.

    NOTE: The count of mentor occurrence is considered for the same tag. If you change the tag, that mentor count is considered separately.

    Suppose the mentor occurrence to get promote to the Level 2 is 2. If you became mentor for tag CBSE for the first time and for the second time for tag Karnataka State Board, then that mentor count is not counted as 2. You have to satisfy the mentor count 2 either for the same tag CBSE or Karnataka State Board.

    Existing Level Promoted Level Score Mentor Count
    Level 1 Level 2 2K 0
    Level 2 Level 3 3K 1
    Level 3 Level 4 5K 2
    Level 4 Level 5 8K 5
    Level 5 Level 6 12K 10
    Level 6 Level 7 16K 10

    Level 12 Level 13 50K 10
    Level 13 Level 14 60K 10
    Level 14 Level 15 80K 10
    Level 15 Level 16 100K 10

    Depromotion

    Like the Mentor and Promotion, we have the conditions for warning, depromotion and deactivation.

    If you get more flags than claps ,you will fall under warning criteria. Suppose if you are in Level 2 and your percentage ratio of flags over claps is >=30% or <=50%, you will get the warning. You can continue your activities to increase your claps and score.

    If you don?t recover your score and getting more flags and if you fall under the depromotion conditions, you will get the depromotion warning and you will be depromoted by the next two higher level users.

    For example, if you are in Level 2 and your percentage ratio of flags over claps is >=50% or <=70%, then 1 user from Level 3 and 1 user from Level 4,having same account tag as yours can depromote you to Level 1. Now you have to continue your activities from the Level 1 .

    Existing Level Depromoted Level Warning (%) Depromotion (%)
    Level 2 Level 1 30 50
    Level 3 Level 2 28 43
    Level 4 Level 3 25 38
    Level 5 Level 4 25 38
    Level 6 Level 5 22 33
    Level 7 Level 6 22 33
    Level 8 Level 7 22 33

    Level 11 Level 10 20 30
    Level 12 Level 11 15 24

    Level 14 Level 13 15 24
    Level 15 Level 14 10 17
    Level 16 Level 15 10 17

    Deactivation

    If you fall under the deactivation conditions, you will get the deactivation warning and you will be deactivated by the next three higher level users.

    For example, if you are in Level 2 and your percentage ratio of flags over claps is >70%, then 1 user from Level 3, 1 user from Level 4 and 1 user from Level 5,having same account tag as yours can deactivate you. Once you have deactivated, you cannot continue your activities in Sookshmas.

    Level 1 70
