The place of a Teacher has been described above god in mythology . Same applies while preparing for Competitive exams like IIT-JEE or A.I.P.M.T.
Keep in mind you can bear financial loss due to selection of a wrong institute but recovery of time lost is impossible.
Following are some important factors one must keep in mind while selecting a coaching institute-–
1. FACULTY- TEAM: The first and the foremost important part of any institute is its faculty team. Look for an institute which has a balanced team consisting of 5 to 10 yrs experienced teacher, preferably Ex- IIT (not compulsory). Don’t get impressed by “25 years experienced” . After a certain age teacher loose enthusiasm and zeal to success. Also don’t forget to enquire whether team is Full time or not. Don’t hesitate in taking suggestions from few students who are already enrolled. Don’t let anyone experiment on you by fresher .
2. Study Material : Study material do not means a bundle of printed paper having problems directly pasted from a book in your hand. It should contents concise theory and adequate number of carefully selected or designed problems ( an ideal material have around 70 to 100 problems per topic). IIT do not changes syllabus every year so previous year material (if available) may be used. Make sure your institute have published material in previous years also as many institutes fails to deliver material timely .
Daily Problems Sheet is very important tool as it keeps you in touch of topics told few months back.
3. Infrastructure : institute need not to look like a star hotel , but it must have carefully designed class room and basic amenities. Avoid institutes situated in noisy place.
4.Test Series : Make sure that institute conducts tests at least every fortnight in conditions simulated to real time exam and also display result timely. It will be good if institute give you All India Rank of all tests. Test papers should be discussed in class. ( On line test series will be a good choice if your institute do not provides All India Rank)
Parents must make sure that they get a copy of result every time and also that institute keeps attendance and notify you absent ism.
