But what if the faculty is not competent enough ? Its plain and simple, such an academic institute is useless. Not only useless, they are devastating for students.
Unfortunately there are many such institutes, where faculty team is incompetent and sometimes there is no team only, they just manage with temporary, visiting faculty. Lets call them "Purely commercial institutes".
- Make sure that you take feedback of average students as well.
- Enquire about the presence of faculties in the batches which were taught 2-3 years back, that there will be an assurance of consistency of the team. At Prime Academy Pune, M.Prakash Academy Pune, Vidyamandir Delhi etc, the core IIT faculty team has not shuffled since last many many years and that’s a big advantage for students.
4. Try to go with mid segment institute. If an institute has too many branches, then there is too much shuffling among faculties and hence they are not able to connect with students easily. Because of two main reasons they overlook fine aspects and believe in dictating their terms and conditions with brute force. Reason-1. They are established and they dont have any threat of survival and hence they don't entertain any modifications, as per case to case basis. Reason-2. Since they are large groups, its anyways very difficult for them to get in the fine details and requirements of various students and incorporate changes accordingly.
10. There is a very cheap and dangerous malpractice by many coaching classes, where they insist on finishing entire syllabus of board and then move to JEE Mains and advance. If its such a bad approach, then it must be known to IIT JEE coaching Institute's managers also. Then why few of these managers adopt this method? Actually its a vey crook method of befooling parents where shrewd IIT JEE coaching classes cut short faculty cost, at the same time increase number of its enrolled students. Let me quickly get in the details of this catastrophic strategy, which turns out to be suicidal for students academic career. With due respect to all school/board faculties, usually they are available at relatively less salary in comparison with IIT JEE faculties. There are many coaching classes who dont have IIT JEE mains/advanced level faculties. But most of the engineering aspirants seek for JEE mains and advanced classes, as JEE is mandatory for most of the engineering college. And hence even non JEE level classes put the banner of IIT JEE mains coaching class. But how will they teach and answer the doubts of students of JEE mains and advanced standards ? Here they play this selfish move of suggesting parents that, we will first complete the syllabus of Board/school. Poor parents also get convinced after listening overhyped importance of board exams. Now stage is set for such self proclaimed IIT JEE coaching classes. For almost 1.5 years they successfully engage innocent students by sending board/school level students. There are few smart and aware students, who realize the inferior teaching standard and join other classes in mid session. Those who continue with such classes, anyways become conceptually weak and dont realize the importance of good IIT JEE level faculties. Such students underperform in exams and get a sense of cheating at the end of the course. Then how do these IIT JEE coaching classes gather students for next academic year ? As I said earlier, they are true campions in marketing and publicity. Their mesmerizing front desk counseling clubbed with heavy branding is sufficient for them to get students. But where do they so much of funds for marketing ? Since they dont employee expert IIT JEE faculties, who usually charge many lakhs for a month, such classes save lots of money there, which in turn help them to invest in marketing. Click here to know the correct way to prepare for IIT JEE.
Just take care of these simple and very generic points. This small research will hardly take 1-2 days of a parent. But it will surely make huge difference in defining the career of a student. Trust me its worth !
