Why Take Coaching?

Why Take Coaching?

This question is that- "Why Take Coaching? Why not do Self Study?"

This is one of the most important question when we start preparing for CSIR NET JRF exam or UGC NET JRF Exam or any other research oriented exam. Then You have choice "Either you make a mistake and learn from it or you learn from other people mistakes".

How is a Competitive Exam Different from other exam?

When We comes to research and fellowship exam it differs for example, The pattern for the Single Paper MCQ test with duration of three hours and question paper is divided in three parts containing General Aptitude subject-related conventional MCQs, higher value questions that may test the candidate’s knowledge of scientific concepts and/or application of the scientific concepts.
The questions are of analytical nature where a candidate is expected to apply the scientific knowledge to arrive at the solution to the given scientific problem. Negative marking for wrong answers. 
Ultimately, student has to cover all the syllabus with in limited period of time and as well totally different approach according to the pattern of exam and intensity of competition.

Self Study + Coaching = Success in Competitive Exams

Self-study is the common essential component whether you are doing self-preparation or coaching.  During self-Preparation, the process needs time, focus and competitive approach.
The selection of actual topic which seems relevant and important becomes difficult or time-consuming process. The analysis of previous examinations might take extra efforts to conclude the right direction and focus for examination. The tendency of the student remains same to cover every bit of syllabus and read study material thoroughly for best preparation.
It seems good but in this process we lack time for proper revision of important as well as all the content we studied. Only right kind of teacher can help and guide us but he is not available all the time with us. So hesitation here becomes one of the issue for not asking for help from teacher.
  • Good time management is the key to cracking competitive exams.
  • Coaching classes provide you with a pre-defined study plan devised by exam experts.
Many of the students preparing for competitive exams join coaching to give an edge to their preparation. Time is not sufficient for taking care of every bit and aspect of exam preparation. On the other hand, Coaching saves time, provides regularity , sharpens our focus , helps in developing Self thinking, self-analysis technique and moreover and provide authentic mentor for clearing doubts. Its gives us the right kind of temperament to prepare for the exam and right techniques for solving different problems with different and time-tested techniques.
Coaching can help the student in cracking the exam so if you planning to join the coaching then join, it would definitely help a student to crack the exam. You are most welcome to contact Koshika Academy for career guidance or any query related to CSIR NET JRF, IIT JAM, UGC NET JRF Entrance and Gate Biotechnology.
