The JEE coaching institutes have been mushrooming across the country. Students, who aspire to get admissions into the prestigious IITs, undergo a huge pressure. It is indubitable that cracking JEE is one of the toughest examinations in the world and there are lakhs of aspirants attempting to crack it. As the seats are limited in the IITs, every student is striving hard to fight for it. The level of competition has gone high this year as fourteen lakh students appeared for JEE Mains 2014. It is also a known fact that JEE patterns change often, which keeps the students under the state of dilemma. Thus these aspirants prefer to join coaching institutes to get a formal training. Gradually these coaching institutes have become an inseparable part of education domain. There are two mode of coaching now. One is conventional classroom coaching and another is online coaching. Though both have shown remarkable results but both follow different teaching methodologies. Best institute for preparation of JEE could be any depending upon various parameters. After carefully studying the success model of various coaching institutes, experts advise the students to consider the following parameters before choosing one:
Faculties Experience - The Faculties are the strongest muscle in the education system. This is one parameter that shouldn't be compromised upon. If the faculties are experienced, they will be able to deliver best knowledge which is as per the current requirement. Now that we know about the ever changing patterns of JEE, the teachers must keep themselves updated. They must also tweak the teaching methodologies and study material accordingly. There are some institutes like Kshitij Education India, which have ex-IITians as faculties who are able to impart knowledge as per the current patterns in addition with practical approach and mentoring. In classroom coaching the teachers are not always reachable and thus getting mentored becomes difficult.
Teaching Methodologies - Should be as per the changing patterns of JEE. Old methodologies are not updated with the current requirement. The structure of study material, assignments and mock tests also changes according to the time. Undoubtedly the changes to the hardcopy of these take time whereas, changes to the online version of these doesn't take much time. Online coaching institutes provide online study material that can be referred to any time, irrespective of your location. Here the faculties keep changing the material as per the latest JEE pattern so that their students keep themselves attuned to it. Online teaching methodology is gaining success because it is 24x7accessible and thus is reachable to NRI aspirants too.
Past Performance - The students must analyze the past performance of the coaching institute. It is proof of credibility and commitment towards their teaching. The performance of the coaching institute reflects the quality of its teaching.
Infrastructure - The infrastructure is highly important when there are a huge number of students and quality is to be delivered. The online coaching institutes provide a robust infrastructure that is fully supported by technology. Technology has a vital role in education domain also and we have seen a tremendous growth in this sector because of its support. The learning is now reachable to all the aspirants irrespective of the location.
Facilities Provided - In online mode of coaching the technologically backed facilities can't be matched! The virtual classrooms give a high level of interaction between students and teachers. The video lectures can be recorded and can be watched multiple times till there is no room for doubts, which is not possible in conventional coaching. The live chat option in online coaching facilitates communication between teacher and student. The students can give many online mock tests which are designed by the faculties, the results of which can be compared with the peer group and the areas of strengths and weaknesses can be analyzed. They also have an access to the online study material, irrespective of time and place. All this with the comfort of home! Thus, online coaching is time saving too.
Courses offered - The courses offered by the coaching institutes are also to be considered before finalizing one. There are few ideal institutes that have devised great modules. As per the latest guidelines of the education ministry, preference on final selection will be given to only those candidates who perform well in their boards as well. Thus experts advise that the coaching institute must offer courses which doesn't clash with school academics and prepares for both, JEE and boards that helps the students in overall learning. Kshitij Education India has designed courses for NRIs and well as Indian students as per the latest JEE pattern which doesn't clash with the school course and provides foundation courses (for students of 9th and 10th) along with short term and long term courses to all its students with respect to the class they study in.
