Prepare for JEE 2013

Prepare for JEE 2013: Time to Work Harder

The restructuring of AIEEE and IIT JEE in 2013 is creating a lot of confusion among the minds of aspirants. It is very important to clear all the confusion. Read my article What is JEE 2013 to clear all your doubts.

Prepare for JEE 2013: Introduction

You should know that to prepare for JEE 2013, the time after 12th board is very precious. It should be utilized in the optimal way to get the best result. The time period is very short and its optimal utilization will guarantee the best rank that you are capable to achieve by giving your best shot. And, you have to give your best shot.

This time period of almost 70 days is going to decide your career’s fate. You will be among elite group of the society or average. All will depend on your performance in these 70 days. Hence, it is very important to take a systematic approach to maximize the chance of giving your best performance.

Prepare for JEE 2013: For Whom

I’m writing this article for those aspirants of JEE 2013 who are appearing for 12th board and afterwards planning to appear for both JEE (Main) and JEE (Advanced). This article will not address preparation for paper 2 of JEE (Main) or aptitude test of JEE (Advanced). It will be published in two parts; first part will be about preparation for JEE (Main). Second part will address JEE (Advanced) preparation. Keep almost 15-20 different sets of simulator tests for both JEE (Main) and JEE (Advanced). However, before going in detail please go through my article, Most Suitable date for JEE (Main) Online Test.

Prepare for JEE 2013: First Learn Concepts

Some years ago, I had written an article, How to prepare for IIT JEE. The article described three step for IIT JEE preparation. Even though a lot has changed since then in the format of JEE, still first two step are well enough for JEE (Advanced) preparation. I would suggest you go through the article.

I have always told the aspirants of JEE that you don’t need to prepare for the type of the questions asked. You just need to get yourself to the level of knowledge required for IIT JEE. Preparation for a particular type of question  could be done within 20 days.

IIT JEE always keeps changing. Since 2000 I am following it. Every next year there were few changes with respect to previous years. Level of question changed, pattern changed, type of questions changed. This year even the name changed to JEE (Advanced). But, style never changed. IIT always asks tricky questions. An IIT JEE aspirant of year 2000, can appear for the paper of year 2012 and get the same rank, just by preparing for not more than 10 + 20 days (10 days for going through major addition in the syllabus in 2003).

My point in all this is to get the knowledge of every portion of the syllabus before board exam. After board, just prepare for the question type asked in JEE both Main & Advanced. Any question whether, it is asked as subjective or objective is solved in the same way, just presentation of the answer differs. Hence, know how to solve any problem. Adapting according to the requirement of the presentation is not a hard task.

Prepare for JEE 2013: 12th Board is Over

Now, lets proceed to know how to be ready for JEE (Main) once 12th board exam is over. For JEE (Main) or AIEEE, I always feel it is an examination to test your speed rather than intelligence. There would be hardly any tricky questions that would be asked in its exam,. All would be formula based (or memory based). However, JEE (Advanced) or IIT JEE tests your intelligence rather than speed. Moreover, syllabus of JEE (Main) is almost same as that of 12th board. Hence, if someone has prepared well enough for 12th board, he/she could perform well in JEE (Main) after a preparation of 15-20 days.

As I have already told you through my article Most Suitable date for JEE (Main) Online Test, I feel JEE (Main) should be taken online rather than paper based and you should choose the most suitable slot to maximize your performance for both JEE (Main) and JEE (Advanced).

Now, once your board exam is over, take a break of one day and do full-day-night fun. This will totally refresh your mind from the stress of 12th board exam. As per CBSE board, I think the last exam for science stream students would be on 23rd March. It is advised to keep a gap of 15 days between the last day of 12th board exam and JEE (Main) test date. I suggested 10th April, 2013 as the most suitable date to appear for JEE (Main). Hence, those who are going to appear for CBSE board would be getting around 15-16 days for preparation of JEE (Main). After refreshing your mind, we are going to use the simulator tests that I have asked you to collect. It would be better if at least 7-10 simulator tests are computer based.

Step 1 (4-5 day):

Now, initially you need to use the paper based tests. For the first 5 days, start solving the simulator test by using all books, notes and all other means available. But, don’t go through the solution before attempting and possibly solving all the problems. Once you attempted all the questions. Check your answers and if any answer went wrong even after using all possible means. Try to understand where was the problem. Time should not be a factor. However, complete one test in one day.

This process will not be an easy one. On the first 2-3 days, it will take away all the energy. But, if done with concentration and dedication. It will work like anything. If one would go through the questions asked by the AIEEE, one can understand that the questions asked by AIEEE are formula based and could be solved easily if formula is known. This step would help you to know and memorize the formula based on the questions which are being asked by AIEEE. Further, it will revise you the syllabus in accordance with JEE (Main) syllabus. You would know the method for approaching a particular type of problems asked. It would be best if you use past years question paper for this step as simulator test. This will benefit you in the best way, as you will learn, what is asked and exactly how to solve them.

Step 2 (6-7 days):

Once you completed step 1, you would be well versed with the question types asked in AIEEE and how to solve them. I expect it would be almost 10 days left for the JEE (Main).

In this step and next, you have to learn how to attempt the questions in a time bound manner. How to manage and approach the test to score maximum? Both speed and accuracy is important. For the next 9 days sit for the test in the same time schedule in which your JEE (Main) test is. It will help your body to get used to the schedule, so that you won’t fill any physical stress on the final day. It would be best if you attempt the tests on table and chair. I recommend to use the computer based test for both this and the final step. If you don’t have so much computer based tests. Last step should be totally using computer based tests. Rests should be used for this step, along with paper based tests.

For the first 6-7 days, solve the question in the stipulated time schedule. Once the test is over, calculate your marks. Now, take a break of around 1 hour. Afterwards, first try to solve incorrect answers and try to figure out, where you made the mistakes. Next, try to solve the unattempted questions. If you gave the test in first half, then try to solve the unattempted and incorrect ones by the end of the day. If you solve it in second half, try to do so by the next day first half. If you need to refer some books or notes, do so. This whole process will improve your latency and no. of questions attempted.

Step 3 (3 days):

Till now, you would be totally stressed with the heavy workout, I suggested in the first two steps. Now, for the last 3 days, you need to give relaxation to your mind. Out of these 3 days, for the first 2 days, solve the test in the normal schedule as per your JEE (Main) timing. Check your score. But, no need to do the whole other workouts. Its time to relax. Watch TV. Play some games. If you want, for an hour or so, revise the formulas and other things which needs to memorized. But, take no stress. All of us commit errors while solving. However, it is minimized if the stress on the mind is less. The success rate of your attempted questions, makes a huge difference in the score.

I prefer the last day before the exam to be free from any study. Don’t worry. If you don’t solve the test for one day, it will not deteriorate your score. But, it will give your mind some peace. You may spend some time to memorize the formulas. Don’t spend time just watching movies or TVs or just playing games. As doing one thing for long hours will give stress to your mind. Go meet your friends. Spend some time with them. Eat healthy food and sleep at usual time.

On the final day. I expect you will be fully ready to appear for JEE (Main) and give your best shot.

IIT JEE: What should be the strategy for repeaters?

IIT is a dream for many students. Many had waited 4-5 years to crack IIT JEE. Some even spent few years in other college, and then came to IIT without any tension about year loss. But, since 2006, IIT JEE has taken few steps to filter genuine quality from repeaters.

IIT JEE committee in 2006 changes few eligibility rules for IIT JEE. These changes allow only those who have passed the qualifying exam not more than one year back. Simply we can say. Maximum two attempts are allowed for IIT JEE to any students.

Normally students, who are not both lucky and brilliant simultaneously, fail to mark an impression in first attempt of IIT JEE. I’m pointing at lucky and brilliant both. Even brilliance can’t guarantee you to be an IITian in first shot. There are lots of complications. Like you have to cover the syllabus in right time, you have to face board exams just few days back of IIT JEE, you have to quickly switch to IIT JEE syllabus after board exam. Not to say all these needs proper timing. Many loose the preparation at last steps not due to brilliance. But, due to so much complications and lack of proper guidance. Just before IIT JEE, many lose their chance to get selected. So, it needs luck with brilliance to pass IIT JEE in first shot.

I will discuss here exactly how you should prepare if you had failed in first appearance of IIT JEE. What should be the strategy? How you should study? When is the right time for pace? When you should join test series? When your revision should start? Should you join any coaching or home preparation is best? I will discuss all these points here. Also, if you want any point to be added by me raise your voice. Use comments section.

First of all, let’s decide whether you need coaching or not. Note it down that you should be associated in IIT JEE coaching once in your three-year duration of IIT JEE preparation. If you have taken any professional coaching for IIT JEE up till 12th. Now, go for home preparation. If you were not associated with coaching during 12th or 11th especially for IIT JEE, it is a good time for you to do so. Do not forget. Coaching is very important to know most about IIT JEE. Especially those who are average do well after coaching. (See this article to know how coaching help different students in IIT JEE preparation.)

One thing I want to urge all. If you think that there is some chance for you to crack IIT JEE. But, less chance in first shot. Then, go for IIT JEE coaching during 11th and 12th. Don’t leave the professional help for post-board duration. Coaching gives you a lot. But, it takes away your energy and also need much mental and physical work. Students sometime get lost in mental and physical strain they undergo during coaching. Also, you will become much more mature about IIT JEE after taking coaching. So, you could study in right way in your final shot. I will discuss more about it later in some other article.

If you are thinking to go for coaching after board exams, then, remember to give good time for self-study. Don’t get lost in assignments and hand-outs provided by your coaching. Solve them. But, also give appropriate time for IIT JEE text-books and standard problem book. Remove confusions related with concepts using full help of coaching system. IIT JEE concentrates more at those points which are loop holes for students. You can do better if you keep in mind above mentioned points. These are enough for you. Remember, coaching will take away most of your time. Still you have to work-hard restlessly.

Now, if you had already taken coaching during 12th or don’t want to join any coaching. These are for you.

After IIT JEE exam or exam period gets over. Don’t waste much time in enjoyment. Re-start your preparation after a gap of not more than 7 days.

When you start the preparation, first go for little analyze. Try to figure out which chapters need improvement and which are your best portions. Also, which book to follow? In this one year of preparation you should concentrate more on clarifying concept by solving more and more problem. Problem should be solved by books which have IIT JEE sort of problems. I would suggest go for Arihant books in Physics and Mathematics. For chemistry, Arihant books are not so much good. Try Schaum series or others like O P Tondon or O P Agrawal for physical chemistry. For Organic strictly go for Solomons & Fryhle. It is best book for Organic chemistry for IIT JEE. Use this book with its solution book. For Inorganic use Arihant. Memorize every reaction type. Go for problems. The more regularly you solve the problems. The more you will improve in Organic or Inorganic Chemistry. Not to mention, not just above books are only best books in the market. But, yeah these are most tested.

If you have material of some top institute of IIT JEE. Refer them too while reading concept from above mentioned books. Try to solve the variety of problems available. The more you get familiar with problem more you will solve the problem in IIT JEE. Remember IIT JEE don’t check your speed. You will have enough time to solve problems to secure good rank in IIT JEE. So, concentrate on practicing more and more problem. Required speed will be acquired just by practice.

Now, I’m going to tell you a very important trick you should use which would help you later in revision. While going through problems, mark the problems which are unsolved, hard or tricky. Even those which you solved, but you want to see them while revision. On an average you will get 10-15 marked questions in 100 you will attempt. Use these questions when you revise. This simple technique will boost up your revision time 2-3 folds. Normally, while revision students get confused from where to start revision. But, with this trick in use, you can just refer theory quickly from somewhere (like Brilliant tutorial provides YG File compendium or FIITJEE provides some books with GMP). Then, go through the problems you had marked earlier. Remember, it’s on to you which problem to mark. Don’t mark just hard problem. Instead, mark the problems in a way which could help you to revise in less time later. So, after solving chapters go through marked problems and see whether you can revise with those problems.

Normally, you should close first phase of detailed study, up till December to January. Then, phase 2, revision by above mentioned way till 20 – 25 days prior to exam date. For phase 2, if time permits you could also use GMP or YG Files. In last phase, solve simulator tests or sample tests provided by many institutes free or on some charge. Buy them and solve. In between, nearly in Nov-Dec each institute starts their test series for IIT JEE. Join a good test series. Sit for it regularly. But, never spend time to prepare for test series. Not even on day prior to test date. If you desperately want to read a little, give 1hr -2hr on last night before test series’ test date. You should not spend much time on test series preparation.

Sample tests should be taken by you in the same time duration as for IIT JEE exam. Like this year schedule is Paper 1: 9:00 AM – 12:00 noon and Paper 2: 2:00 PM -5:00 PM. Sit for tests each day at 9:00 AM sharp. Use chair and table for giving exams. Your body should adjust to exam schedule. Between 12:00 to 2:00 test your score for Paper 1. Afterwards, look through solution for incorrect answers. Know where you missed. Then, take your lunch. Lastly, relax a bit. Again at sharp 2:00 PM sit for Paper 2. After exam check your marks. Go through solutions for incorrect questions. Try to analyze where you are failing. In which portion you score most negative marks. If a bit concept update is required go for it. But, don’t go deep study.

After test session, relax for an hour or so. Watch TV. Go to friends home. Else sleep.

At night, go for unsolved problems. These are the problems which are very much similar to IIT JEE type of problems. Many of these problems could be faced by you first time. Try to solve them using all books and materials you have available. This is the last time to increase your rank in IIT JEE. More sincerely you solve more your rank will improve. This single step could give you a gain of around 10 – 15 % for ranking. Believe me.

For 15-20 day, regularly take these tests till last 2 days of exam. For last two days, normally prefer to avoid reading anything. If you can’t, don’t go for deep study and for new concept. Just revise 2-3 times daily every formula and tricks from a collection book normally provided by institutes (like compendium of YG Files).

These are a simple one year plan for repeaters. You may easily view. This method can’t be used by fresher. Last two phases could be used by those repeaters too who had joined any coaching.

If you find anything to share, feel free to do it. I am waiting for your comments.

(Now, I want to share with you my one year which I spend for IIT JEE preparation after 12th board. In appearing exam of IIT JEE I failed to clear IIT JEE screening. I scored 97. While 99 were cut-off marks. Missed screening test by a score less than what a question usually carry.

After all exams are over, I spent two months in enjoyment. I started preparation in July last week, my first mistake. Simultaneously, I joined a test series, my second mistake.

In two months of off-study, I had lost grip on many portions. Also, I usually get lost in test series’ tests held after every 21 days. I get confused whether to prepare for these tests or not, my third and biggest mistake. Overall, for whole year I just able to recover the level where I was at the time of last IIT JEE. In screening exam, I merely pass the test.

During screening and mains exam, I used the last phase discuss above. It helped me a lot and let me to secure around 10000 ranks in mains. Not to mention, I appeared for IIT JEE next year too using experience of the discussed year.)

What is JEE 2013?

JEE 2013

Confusion Among Aspirants about JEE 2013

The whole structure of the two major engineering entrance exam in India changes for the year 2013. After much debate, meetings and suggestions, finally ministry of human resource & development have come up with a plan to enhance the importance of 12th board. Now, the marks of 12th board will not only be a cut-off, instead it will impact the rank.

The sudden change in the whole pattern of admission have created an ambience of confusion among the aspirants. The terms has changed. AIEEE name is missing from the whole process. And, importantly CBSE is organizing one of the two JEE exams.

Lets go through the details of JEE 2013

JEE 2013: AIEEE becomes JEE (Main) and IIT-JEE becomes JEE (Advanced)

The most important change which is creating highest confusion among the aspirants is modification and alteration in the terminology. The engineering entrance exam AIEEE that CBSE used to conduct has been renamed as JEE (Main). Similarly, JAB which used to conduct entrance exam for IIT known as IIT-JEE has been renamed simply as JEE (Advanced).

In order to correlate both IIT JEE and AIEEE, the bigger brand name JEE has been used for both the exam. However, the structure of examination is nearly unchanged for both the exams.

JEE 2013: Weightage for 12th marks

This is the most important change that MHRD wanted in the IIT JEE for years. However, still nothing has changed if IIT JEE is taken into consideration. But, a lot have change for admission to colleges using AIEEE score.

The major reason which was cited in implementation of weightage to 12th board result was variance in the pattern and marks of all the 12th board examination bodies through out the country. The suggested normalization process was always seen as flawed and was resisted from implementation.

This year only admission to NITs, IIITs and other institute which were using AIEEE ranking earlier is going to get affected by the marks of 12th board. After the result of JEE (Main) and 12th board, a ranking will be given by the CBSE with 60 % weightage to JEE (Main) marks and 40 % weightage to 12th board normalized marks. This ranking will be used for admission to NITs and other engineering college for counseling and admission.

As for the IIT-JEE, 12th board result will not impact directly on the ranking. However, a student is required to be in top 20 percentile of their board. Now, the group of words used by the JEE (Advanced) for this eligibility citeria is “admission will be subject to the condition that the candidates are in the top 20 percentile of successful candidate of their boards”.

The use of percentile is very tricky and confusing. Let me explain. Percentile means % of students below you. Percentile starts from 0 and ends to 100. Hence, a top 20 percentile means a percentile greater than or equal to 80. Here, the use of term successful candidate of their board is a very important part which many might ignore. Let me give you an example to explain its importance.

In a board exam 11 students appear, and to be qualified to get a scholarship one needs to be in top 20 percentile of successful candidate, i.e. percentile of 80 or above. Now, the last student who passes will be on zero percentile and topper will be on 100 %. As one must have solved in Arithmetic Progression, the rest students will be equidistant from each other in percentile from 0 to 100.

Now, if all of them gets marks more than passing marks say 35. Then, the 11th position will get zero percentile, then the next one will be 10 percentile, then 20…so on to 100. And, the student with 80, 90 and 100 percentile will get the scholarship.

Now, if one of them either didn’t appear or fail in the exam and rest passes in the exam. Total no. of successful candidate will reduce to 10. Percentile of each students will be 0, 11.11, 22.22……77.77, 88.88, 100. Now, as only those students will be awarded the award which would get percentile of 80 or above. Only top two student will be awarded the scholarship instead of three.

This is the most interesting aspect of the words used by JEE (Advanced) as their criteria. As we see in the example above, even if the third student from the top didn’t do anything wrong and may be even he get the same marks as before. He was not awarded the scholarship.

Normally, if a student is getting a top 20 % rank in his school, which is a good school of his city. It is to be believed that he will be well within top 20 percentiler of his board. However, it is not certain as the percentile will depend on the no. of students passed. If a board is very tough and a lot of students fail in its exam. Even a change of 5 – 10 % success rate of students will hugely impact in the top 20 percentile list. I’m not scaring you. But, keep this aspect in your mind.

Further, whether you score 80 %, 90 % or 95 % in your board exam, it will not change your AIR in JEE (Advanced), neither it will effect in your branch or college. It will be just a bar which you have to clear by a good margin to remove any uncertainty.

Finally, what should be the average percentage of marks required for top 20 percentile. If your board result is not fluctuating much the answer of this question could be found very easily. Ask your school teacher to assist in analyzing your school’s last five year’s result in board exam. The result of your school’s student would not be a perfect sample for whole board. But, even if your school is a good school in the city, expect the bar marks for top 20 percentile in your school for last five years will be better than overall board’s bar mark.

JEE 2013: Structure of the Whole JEE 2013

The exam pattern of both the earlier exams AIEEE and IIT JEE are unchanged even though the names have changed. Whether it is JEE (Main) or JEE (Advanced), nothing related to the exam they conduct has changed. However, both the exams are now inter-related.

One have to fill the form for JEE (Main) till 15 Dec, 2012. Then, they have to sit for the JEE (Main) exam as earlier. The score for JEE (Main) will be declared by  7 May, 2013. However, ranking for admission in colleges through JEE (Main) will be declared on or before 7 Jul,2013. The 12th board appearing candidates have to submit their 12th board roll no. before downloading the admit card for JEE (Main).

CBSE along with the score of JEE (Main) will also declare the status of those who qualify for appearing in JEE (Advanced). After this to appear in the JEE (Advanced), the qualified candidates are required to register themselves at JEE (Advanced) website between 8 May, 2013 and 13 May 2013. The exam fee has to be paid through challan at SBI branches by 13 May, 2013. The written test of JEE (Advanced) will be conducted on 2 Jun, 2013 and result will be declared by 23 Jun, 2013.

It is advised to make a chronological schedule for all the events.

Summary

One thing has certainly changed with JEE 2013. Earlier, one could have just sat for IIT JEE. However, now even if one wants to write only JEE (Advanced). He has to sit and fill the form for both the exams.

On a whole I would say even though pattern of the exams have not changed. But, the end result and parameters for selection have changed. The effect of 12th marks may not effect much on JEE (Advanced). However, I expect this year the authorities are trying to assess the impact of 12th marks normalization. It is just a test for the normalization process. If everything worked fine, then I expect from next year or so 12th board marks will be taken into consideration for JEE (Advanced) AIR too.

If you find anything that I missed to cover in this article feel free to let me know. I would suggest to spread this article among your friends or share it on facebook for the benefit of every aspirants around you.

Role of Coachings in IIT JEE selection

Indian Institute of technology (IIT) are the most prestigious institutes of India. It’s the dream of every science students to study at IIT. One may get admission at any IIT after clearing a test organised by the all the IITs. It’s called IIT JEE. As there are many students dreaming to study at IIT or be an IITian. The competition is very tough to clear. Almost 350,000 students each year appear in IIT JEE. Out of which nearly 10000 students are selected. We can find coaching institutes every where which helps students to clear IIT JEE. It is a fact that coaching institutes for IIT JEE are more than double in number of total students selected in IIT JEE. So, the question arises naturally. Are these coaching institutes play any role in the selection for IIT JEE?

Coaching institutes for IIT JEE can be found at almost every corner of street in every town of India. Size and strength of students vary at these places. But, all have same purpose to give students guidance for clearing IIT JEE. No doubt many fail to produce even a single IITian in lifetime. A large number of these institutes teach without proper procedure. There are very kind of institutes. Institutes operating with one teacher and one classroom to institutes with branches in every part of the country. Tuition fees in these institutes also vary from institutes to institutes and city to city. We can say it is a business. Apart from collecting taxes from these institutes, government play no role to monitor the benefits of the students. There are no regulations at all. Any one can teach or cheat students with the dream to be future IITian. Let us see the role of coaching institutes in IIT JEE preparation.

We will discuss here role of various types of coaching institutes for various types of students. We will not excluding the dullest students from our group of students. As they are no where around IIT JEE. They should not waste their time for IIT JEE.

1. Big Institutes

In this category, we will discuss about institute which are well-known in every part of India. These institutes have branches in various city. They send a lot of students to IIT each year. Some well-known names are FIITJEE, Brilliant Tutorials (BT), Bansal Classes, Vidya Mandir, Apex Academy, Narayana, Chaitanya, Career Point, Resonance and Akash. These are some of the well-known names. FIITJEE, BT and Bansal Classes stands in front this row. They are renowned institutes which have given the most students to IIT. So, how does they help students to clear IIT JEE. Does they give them a syrup or tonic to drink or eat. No, they don’t. Let’s discuss how they give such a great results year after year.

BT and Bansal are old very institutes. They started and develop the coaching system for IIT JEE. One more name come in the list, Agrawal Classes. These institute since 80′s are teaching for IIT JEE. They develop a study material on the basis of 10th syllabus which could help the student to grasp the concept needed in the IIT JEE exam. In the beginning there were not many names in the market. So, it was easy for them to get quality students and guide them. As the quality students are with them. They produced good results each year.

Currently, these institutes recruit best teachers to guide the students along with good study material. They organize tests and doubt clearance session regularly. Also, they give students bunch of questions to solve after every concept is discussed. Institute concentrate on more and more practice and doubt clearance. On an average, in these institutes students solve 3-4 times more questions than in regular studies. So, by constant practice and doubt clearance, students gain pace and accuracy. This helps them to clear IIT JEE. They don’t have to think a lot about preparation strategy and other tension. Institutes generally take care of every problem. The institute’s think tank keeps a keen eye on the process which help the student in selection. As the institute have money power. They spend it to test their methods and improve if needed to change. They have the best team of teachers. They generally get early signs of changes that could be possible in coming IIT JEE exam. Overall, their methods helps students to develop a bit. No doubt.

Lets see how in the present time these big institutes are for different IQ level students. For IIT JEE, lets see students with intelligence level as intelligent, average, below average and dullest. As we have said earlier we will not discuss about dullest students.

A. Intelligent Students:

These students are those who have the highest chance to be an IITian. In any class of 50, one may find 5-10 students from this category. They are born intelligent and many are laborious too. By proper guidance of these institutes. These people develop themselves to solve the toughest and trickiest questions with ease. They secure high ranks with the help of these institutes.

B. Average Students:

Students in this category are mainly those who are either laborious but not intelligent else intelligent but not laborious. Also, those who are a bit of both intelligent and laborious come in this sections. These students need encouragement and proper guidance to make it to IIT. These institutes give them lots of question to solve. By the practice, environment and luck many students of this group with lower ranks make their way to IIT. Yeah luck is also a factor for them to clear IIT JEE. Even slight mistake in the preparation could cost them an IIT seat.

C. Below Average Students:

This category of students too gets some benefit from these institutes. They are not IIT material. Also, not much good for low-level exams. But, these institutes with lots of practice to them, helps them to clear regional exams. That’s high achievement for them.

Remember, I’ve pointed out that in every aspect these institutes are beneficial for the students. Then, why not every students take admission in these institutes. The reason is simple. They are very much costly too. Yeah, these institutes have a very high fees. Not possible for every one to pay in a country like us. They have full AC class rooms. Their high paying teachers can’t teach in non-AC class rooms. Also, many students who study there are AC addicted. So, they have to keep up an AC environment. Even in some circumstance they give scholarship to poor students. That’s few and selected students. That can’t help everyone. So,lower middle class students who are the most in numbers go for other sort of low fees or local institutes .

2. Local Institutes

By local institute, I mean those institutes which are popular but just in few towns. Like Paradise Institute, Nutan Institute in Patna; Prerna Classes in Tatanagar; JSR Classes in Varanashi; Bakliwal Tutorials in Pune. Every city or town have many such institute which are popular locally. Some them who have big business and some have just. They generally don’t have a regular think tank team to develop strategy. Administration is just in hand of one or two people who are teachers too. Not all but some of them provided printed study material. But, they usually don’t organize weekly test. Daily question’s hand outs. Yeah some of them do. Teachers in these institutes are almost all good. But, due to lack of strategy. They don’t work out as a team.

Lets see how they give benefit to the students.

A. Intelligent Students:

They have the best chance to get in IIT. But, due to lack of strategy and practice. They don’t make it to top ranks in IIT JEE. If we look at the selection every year in IIT. In top 200 these institutes have very less share. Instead of the fact that they are much more in numbers. The reason is simple they lack to develop students. Those who gets selected are due to just guidance and intelligence. Some of them who get right teachers and are extra laborious with intelligence make it to top ranks. But, still all this combination can be replaced with a common word Luck. If the student is lucky they make it to top 100 or 200. Else generally, they fill higher ranks of IIT JEE.

B. Average Students:

Usually average students from these institutes fail to clear IIT JEE. They clear other exams. But, IIT looks far from their reach from such institute. Reason can be seen clearly. There is not a strong administration who have plans for everyone. Institute give no guidance to teacher to take care of everyone. Teachers too like to be more around the sharp brain. They give less extra time for clearing various doubts of these kind of students. With doubts in their mind these students fail to solve the tricky questions of IIT JEE. Many of them secure ranks in regional or other exams.

C. Below Average Students:

Students in this category hardly make any impact in competitive exams from these institutes. Some of the lucky ones gets selected in regional exams.

3. Subject based Tuition

This is the category in which comes subject specific teacher. Institute which teach only one subjects. Actually, these institutes are run by a single teacher. As one single can’t teach all the three subjects. Some even teach sub-subject specific . Mainly, we see them in Chemistry. Teachers who teach Organic avoid inorganic. Some time they just teach organic. Sometime they teach all, but focus only on one of the favorite.

This is the most clustered category of all. Most number of misguided students study in this category. There is no one who makes strategy for them. The teachers take care of just their subject. As there is no coördination between other subject’s teachers. It’s very hard to study inter-related concept. Especially, those portions of Chemistry and Physics which depends on Mathematics. Also, students face timing problem. They have to adjust the time schedule for all three subjects. Not just that, as the classes of each subject have different teacher. They have to run from one place to other for classes. This exhausts the students. Also, it kills valuable time. Sometimes, tiredness causes losing interest in study.

This method of coaching is no doubt beneficial if we consider money. But, else success only depends on luck. It is most widely faced problem. Not all three subjects teacher are liked by the students. For IIT JEE, all three part should be balanced. So, even though one finds best teacher for Math. There is no chance of success, if one can’t find good teacher for Physics and Chemistry too.

The quality of education system is most damaged by this category. Any one who wants to teach for IIT JEE can open institute and misguide others. It is true that the best teachers of India teach through this system. But, it is also true that the number of worst teacher is more than good ones. So, students gets exploited in this system most.

Lets see how this group affects students:

A. Intelligent Students:

All depends on luck. If luck helps and students gets tension free, good teachers in every subject, students can clear JEE. But, that’s the rarest case. Only few are lucky to get all three teachers good. If the student is most brilliant one then only nothing can stop him to get selected. Else miserable chance of selection. Yeah students get selected in various regional or other exams. But, IIT is far from them. Also, one more important point, there is very less hope to get good ranks in IIT JEE. There is no good practice for the students. Some teachers try to give more and more practice, rest is miserable.

B. Average students:

If luck is not with the student very little hope. Even if luck is with students that they get all three good teachers. Almost no hope for IIT JEE. Just a bit hope for regional level exams.

C. Below average students:

Very less chance for these students to get any thing from this system of coaching.

4. Institutes in Kota, Rajasthan

I have discussed about these institutes in detail in my last post. Click Here.

Remarks:

  • It should be you who should decide in which category of student you come.
  • All above is bullshit, if one is laborious and works hard. Laborious and hard-working student can change all the law. So, be laborious nothing will matter much.
