Chegg provides a real-time platform to test your quality and speed simultaneously. If someone can maintain accuracy while answering at a higher pace, the sky is the limit. My average rate of answering is 25 to 30 questions per day. However, the count increases during the peak season. On the Chegg Q&A Board, I receive and answer questions related to various topics of probability and Statistics. I can answer most of the questions with a low skip rate. Unless I lack resources to answer a certain question, I don’t skip. The experience so far is awesome. I received very good feedback from the student for the answer. It feels great when we receive comments such as “You are the life saviour” and “Your answers helped me to ace the exam”. Q. How has Chegg contributed to your earning?
Chegg is the only source of my income. Earnings from Chegg helped me to gift my mom a diamond necklace which would otherwise have seemed like a fortune to me
