Coaching centers are many and growing in their number as it is a good business with raising demand by the students.
Many student opt for coaching to appear for competitive exams. It is no doubt a good decision to take coaching but there are some factors we need to consider before going ahead.
Because at the end of the day the extent of learning and capability to deliver during the exam matters than coaching institute or hard work is done.
So here are few points to consider before selecting the coaching center for study or competitive exam preparation for best results.
The coaching institute should be selected based on
1. Quality of teaching
It is the quality of teaching which makes up the student ready for the exam as he can prepare well and complete the syllabus. Do not just run for a coaching center just based on the number of ranks achieved. Inquire for the teaching staff and their quality.
2. Quality of reading or preparation material and books
Every coaching center or institute offers some study material as a mandatory step when a student joins the institute. So check out for the quality of books or reading material provided.
This indicates how best the coaching institute can mend you if you join for taking their classes. They tend to cover the same reading material topic in a different way but they should groom you well for the competitive exams.
3. A number of students per class:
Though this may seem negligible factor the fewer students for class the more is the attention of the teacher on the students and also by the students towards teaching. So check out for the number of students the institute divides for a single class. Or else if the class is so packed up it will be tough to pose questions or doubts and also difficult inaudibility of lecture if seated in the last benches.
4. Duration of coaching
This is also another important factor. Though the institute can provide coaching for a long duration, it should also provide sufficient time for preparation before the exam.
5. Cost of coaching
Coaching centers are good business these days so they charge heavily as students have no other option but pay the fee to take their tuition in order to qualify the exams. They build a type of obligation situation through advertisements so that even parents and students are mentally prepared to pay the heavy fee and go for coaching. But still, they are variations among fee demand by different institute So check the cost and opt for affordable ones instead of dropping off in between due to inability to pay the fee.
6. Age of Institute
The older institute with consistent top scores is better than an older institute with a gradual decline in results. Further, a new brand institute is again non-reliable. So select a coaching center with suitable age and achievements instead of just very old or very new.
7. Distance from home or place of residence
The coaching center should be as near to your place of residence as possible. This saves time for the journey, exposure traffic, dust, and other strains.
