Learn why Coaching is not important for cracking IIT and PMT

Over 98 % of students getting admission in premier engineering and medical colleges of India such as IIT and PMT do coaching to get admission. The question that comes in mind is that, is coaching so important for cracking competitive exams. Is it possible to get admission in IIT or PMT all by yourself without the help of any regular classes? The answer seems to be no. Since there is very tough competition in entrance exams conducted for admission in these institutes, getting coaching for preparing for these colleges seems mandatory. It is this reason why coaching classes have flooded in every nook and corner. Sometimes parents themselves force their wards to prepare for JEE and PMT entrance examination. Every parent wants their sons and daughters to become engineer and doctors. Students are too eager take engineering and medical as their career. A lot of students (about 99 %) enrol in any coaching classes just after their high school. As a result coaching institutes are earning lot cash irrespective of quality of education they are imparting.

I did some research to find what is so special about these classes. In reality most of the institutes just expertise in cheating off money. Neither they have proper means nor infrastructure to impart quality education. They illegally get the photos and roll no. of candidates who qualify these examination and publish in newspapers under their banner claiming that the students were full time scholar in their coaching. The most unfortunate thing is that students are mistaken by these ads. Some coaching such as those prestigious ones located in Kota impart good education but they again cannot turn a ‘donkey into horse’. Students who get admission in prestigious colleges already have a solid foundation of basics.

There is hardly any example in which an average student turned into a brilliant scholar by doing studies in coaching classes.They get in merit list more because of their own capability than that of coaching.

Now let us see what actually does to get their students crack competitive exams

  • · They provide regular classes. Regular classes ensures that student is regular in studies.
  • · They provide quality notes and books.
  • · They conduct regular tests that help students practice for real exams.
  • · They provide feedback based on relative performance of the students.
  • · They give prior schedule or plan to complete the syllabus in time.
  • · Since the student is studying in group, possibility of individual losing interest or motivation is very less.

Now the question is can student take admissions in IIT, PMT and other such prestigious institutes all by himself i.e. by self study. The answer is yes.

For doing well in any examination whether it is academics one or competitive one, studying regularly is very important. You can do so if you determine to study regularly. If you have strong motivation you will actually be able to study according to your planned timetable.

The second thing is about quality study material. You can get good study material by joining any good correspondence course (not coaching). There are plenty of good books mostly from TMH and Arihant publications that not only help you to get your basics clear but are also real worth reading.

Next comes regular tests. You can give regular tests competing with students all over the country by joining any test series. Test series lets you actually practice for giving exams. Test series are very cheaper compared to coaching classes. These test series also give performance report of your test based on many analyses. Since the schedule of tests are fixed, you can yourself plan which topic to finish at what time. You of course do not need any consultant to do so.

If you yourself determine to achieve anything, you will surely get your goal. Remember, coaching institutes do not give you anything different. They just follow some practices to derive maximum out of you. You can yourself realise your potential to maximum in your own ways. It is you who have to word hard not the coaching institutes.

coaching is not needed to crack iit is a myth for an average student. self study is the most important thing to crack these exams.but ""more study=more douts"" and i don't think school or tution teacher can solve these problems easily.

I think tution is better than coaching because in tution there are minimum students and also understand it faster but in coaching, lot of students are there..... And some students dare from some concepts to be annouced............

Really an inspiring one sir,now this is called a lion's word.Lion in a sense because for those who think ,that they can't crack IIT without coaching are like rats ,and those who make their own way rather depending on others are like lions.And problems seem a mouse to them

Is it really a good idea to drop out from coaching in case I am not comfortable? I have joined the classes over 2 months ago and I feel uncomfortable. Please let me know if it is a good idea to drop out from the coaching.

poor Students are not able to pay Coaching fees,

So the last option is self Study for them and one of them is my doctor.....

Self Descipline is must to achieve a goal.
