Suppose, if 100 people turn up for the interview, usually two of them are able to make it through finally. The rest candidates get filtered off in the selection process. After this tough and tedious selection process, the candidates are put to undergo training where their skills are polished. Freshers are also recruited from colleges like IITs & NITs through campus selection. Selections are also made from other such premier institutes across India.

We keep on experimenting with the selection process rather than sticking to the stereotype model of the selection. We have the following distinguishing features. Advantages of fresher: We offer equal opportunities to fresher because they are energetic, vibrant and have the capability to work hard with innovative methodologies. They can generate the interest of students in subject and maintain a quick & easy rapport with them. Our teacher recruitment exercise is open 24 X 7 throughout the year because it is very challenging to select competent teachers as it takes a lot of time. In fact, efficient teachers to teach for the exams like JEE and NEET(AIPMT)/AIIMS are very rare in the market. With the ever increasing of trust of students in brand Aakash, we do not compromise on quality. Hence, we keep conducting interviews to recruit new teachers every day. Most of the Franchises are being provided with teacher support from AESPL, so that teaching quality remains of high standards at all centres.

Ans. Our aim is to maintain single faculty throughout the session for one batch. However, if one third students in a class complain, then we have to change the faculty. However, it should be noted that a teacher will always be changed only in the best interest of the students. Centre Specific Faculty: Aakash has a pool of teachers in every city where it has centres. Therefore as per the requirement, availability and experience of teachers and the requirement of students, teachers are assigned to different batches.
Ans. As far as the competent faculty is concerned, every centre has best faculties because we have maintained uniformity in selection and training of faculties. The best and the average teachers have been classified by the students because the mode of teaching varies from teacher to teacher.
Ans. Aakash Educational Services Pvt. Ltd., which is the parent company of Aakash Institute, Aakash IIT-JEE and Aakash Foundations, employs only full time teaching staff. There is no part time faculty like other institutes. Advantages of Full-time faculty are:
  1. Student can ask doubts any time during the week or anytime before or after classes.
  2. Student can come to the centre and take one-on-one sessions with the teachers and clarify all his/her doubts.
  3. They help in preparing original study materials, test papers and assignments. The permanent faculty team also enhances ‘Student-Teacher’ interaction, thereby boosting a student’s confidence level through which they feel comfortable in asking questions in the class.
Ans. Yes, PTMs are an integral part of our education delivery and feedback system. We frequently invite parents to meet with their ward’s respective teachers to understand their performance closely. This is also an opportunity for Aakash to get in touch with the parents and motivate them to help Aakash and its students achieve the common goal of qualifying in entrance exam selection. One more advantage of permanent faculty is that, parents can meet the teachers and teachers hold themselves responsible for mentoring weak students and sharpening bright students.
Ans. Our teachers conduct Daily Revision of previous lectures; Concept clearing sessions in each subject are also conducted which equip students with all possible tips, tricks and short-cut-methods to crack the competitive examinations. Student-teacher ratio at Aakash is around 50-60:1. Other institutes keep 100-200 students in a class. We cannot compromise with quality education at any cost. Others are concerned with business only but our top priority is the career-building of our students.
Ans. The study material provided by Aakash is original and is prepared by Aakash’s own teachers. The material prepared is strictly as per the syllabus guidelines of various entrance exams. The study material is exhaustive enough to give the required competitive edge to the students. Study material builds the concepts of the students. Concepts are then put to test by our original and conceptual test papers. Test papers designed at Aakash are not only as per the latest pattern of the Entrance Exams but are also intended to keep students on toes.
The intricate level problems and questions asked in the test papers truly test the application capability of students. Students are tested on part-wise as well as full syllabus tests. Performance reports of test papers and class/test, attendance etc. are regularly sent to parents, to keep them abreast with their ward’s performance. Depending on the batch size and number of batches, we often reshuffle students after 3-4 tests. The objective is to bring like-minded students together so that they learn faster and perform better.
Ans. We provide our students with original question samples that have been prepared by the competent faculty at Aakash. Other institutes simply copy the previous year questions or modify them a bit. This does not provide a competitive edge to the students. We have a dedicated research based team that stresses only on the study material.
Other such coaching institutes overburden the teachers with the work of making study materials. This causes a decrease in teaching quality as well as in the quality of the study material. We plan for tomorrow. So we are the leaders and others are the followers.
Ans. Proper classroom attendance records of students are maintained and monitored. Any student absenting himself/herself from classes for more than one week without prior information is called at by the centre counselor or manager. The institute is very strict for maintaining proper discipline in the institute. Also, students absenting themselves from Class Tests are reprimanded. Careless attitude towards classroom and test attendance can lead to termination or cancellation of admission of the student by the centre authorities
Ans. Most of the parents feel that our fee is high; however, this relatively high fee structure at Aakash is justified because:
  1. Aakash has a culture of high quality of teaching
  2. Highly conducive classroom infrastructure
  3. Highly efficient & effective system of work
  4. The aforesaid features may sound simple but to achieve this level of competence a lot of hard work and commitment goes into the working.
  5. This implies, High Fee = High Quality Coaching
High fee structure is justified in many ways because arrays of scholarships are being offered which shows that we appreciate a student’s performance:
  1. For a long-term course of One Year or Two Years, our fee may look higher by 15000 to 30000 (Depending on the discounts etc given by other institutes).
  2. However, a parent must understand that spending 15000-20000 extra right now and providing the child with the expertise of Aakash, will go a long way in helping him secure a seat in top colleges in India.
  3. Admission at a cheaper institute implies coaching with no quality and system. Parents will end up paying lot more money as DONATIONS in order to get their child enrolled in private medical and engineering colleges later.
  4. Donation money will cost parents anything between 10 Lacs to 30 Lacs. So it is better that they pay little more now and get quality coaching to crack the entrance exams.
Ans. The medium of instruction is English along with the use of Hindi at times to make a concept clear to students. However, the study packages are available in English only.
Ans. Aakash has tied up with Hostels around the centre. You simply need to visit the hostels personally and satisfy yourself of all the arrangements. A nominal hostel fees charged from each student as boarding charges.
Ans. The competition for engineering and medical entrance exams is getting tougher with each passing day. And ‘Two-Year-Course’ provides integrated preparation.
These days about 55% of the questions asked in entrance examinations are from Class XI syllabus and the rest 45% questions are from Class XII syllabus. So preparing in the right earnest from class XI is a must for cracking these competitive exams. Now-a-days, two-year integrated program has been bearing optimum result, so if someone wishes to book his/her seat in medical & engineering entrance exams, it is wise to get enrolled in this program at the earliest.
Ans. Aakash imbibes the following preparation methodology among its students:
  1. Attend Classes promptly and conscientiously
  2. Read the topics from NCERT
  3. Complement it with Aakash Study Material
  4. Solve Aakash Home Assignment/Practice set
  5. Clear Doubts from Teachers
  6. Attend Regular Tests for evaluation
  7. Final Review on Topic
  8. Join All India Aakash Test Series
Ans. Preparing for an entrance exam is undoubtedly exhausting. However, a student can follow these tips in order to prepare well and not overburden himself at the end;
  1. Coming prepared to lectures at Aakash by reading Study Package notes helps student understand concepts/chapters better.
  2. Solving home assignments reinforces whatever is taught in the class.
  3. NCERT chapter coverage gives immense advantage by ensuring that the Board or School exam preparation is taken care of, since entire NCERT is covered.
  4. NCERT forms the base for PMT & JEE; therefore preparation for entrance exams is also solidified.
  5. Practicing lots of questions from good MCQ books provides exposure to all kinds of questions and also helps a student to solve questions in a limited time span. Remember, for example, in PMT you need to solve 180 questions in 180 minutes (approx. one minute to solve one question). Therefore, a student should not waste time in the examination hall in making himself familiar with questions. Instead, he should simply start doing the questions, which is possible only if he has solved lots of similar questions in the past.
Ans. It all depends on the comfort levels of a student. Weekdays batch helps in maintaining the rhythm of a student but are a bit hectic. Weekend classes generally take the entire day but are a bit relaxed as these are scheduled on weekends.
There are some significant differences between the two –Weekdays or Weekend.
  1. In weekdays batch, a student can interact with the faculty regularly but in weekend batch he has to wait for Saturday or Sunday.
  2. In weekdays time management could be the problematic area for the student, but on weekends, a child can easily manage his/her time.
  3. If a student is coming from a far off place then certainly weekend batch would be a better option otherwise weekdays batches are fine.
  4. For weekend batch, student needs to be self-motivated towards his/ her aim.
Ans. Aakash Crash Course offers an array of benefits because this course is divided into three zones, which describe the overall advantages as
Secure Zone: This covers the 55 to 65% syllabus of competitions and questions come every year from this zone.
Relax Zone: This covers 20 to 25% syllabus and questions are asked from this zone once in every 2-3 years.
Topper Zone: This zone covers only 5 to 10% syllabus and questions are asked from this zone once in 5 years.
If we are covering the secure zone, then a child can easily crack the entrance. So, in crash courses we generally give stress on Secure Zone.
Ans. According to Aakash Success Triangle, the contribution of Student, Parents and Mentors is in the ratio of 80%, 10% & 10% in their respective role for the success of a student in competitive exams. Parents should not run away from their responsibility after admitting the child in the institute. The child will succeed in the entrance exam only if the parents and the teachers work together and keep the child motivated and focused.
Ans. All the results published by Aakash institute and Aakash IIT-JEE are genuine and the institute has detailed record of these successful students. Aakash has never published or claimed any fake result and will never do so in future also. Many such coaching institutes often give manipulated and fake results. We never do so as we firmly believe that Our Product, Commitment and Quality are the best.
Ans. The preparation at Aakash is based on CBSE / NCERT syllabus, so during the course of Entrance exams preparation, most of the school syllabus gets automatically covered. We also conduct the classes for preparation of class XI & XII syllabus.
Ans.In such a case, you have to submit the student’s documents like class 10th mark- sheet and Category certificate (if any) along with Aakash I-Card. After verification, refund cheque will be provided to student.
Ans.Aakash is famous not only for the paramount system of education delivery for the medical and engineering aspirants but also for the original and relevant study materials and methodical approach of teaching. Since 1988, we have perfected the system of coaching because we know what is best for students. And our system is same for the Engineering as well as for Medical. In 2008, we didn’t have many students for IIT, but this condition didn’t stop us. We produced top 12 ranks out of 100 in IIT-JEE, total 503 selections in first year. This kind of result was possible purely because of meritorious education system we have developed over the years.

Ans. It is considered that your Aadhaar details have not been uploaded to the main server of UIDAI. To complete the form, you may submit the Aadhaar Enrolment Number which is of 17 digits in place of Aadhaar Number. Further, in the window “Selection Identification Type” select Aadhaar Enrolment Number in place of Aadhaar Number.
