Ans. Teachers at Aakash bring along a wide range of teaching experience: It varies from 2 years to 15 years. Our young teachers bring in a very high level of interaction with students, build rapport & solve doubts intricately. Our experienced teachers are endowed with rich teaching knowledge during their lectures, thus, helping students build stronger concepts and get an exposure of all kinds of questions that can probably be asked in the exams.
New recruits have to undergo a systematic training regime before they start taking classes. The training given to the teachers provides them with an edge and grooms them in a way that sets us apart from other institutes. Other institutes pick up teachers from anywhere and send them to the class without sharpening their teaching abilities. But here at Aakash, each and every faculty has to undergo a training schedule of 3 months. The training imparted includes development and sharpening of skills like:
Ans. The faculty is selected through an exhaustive selection process that comprises of:
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:
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:
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:
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;
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.
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.

We at Aakash cater to this ‘extra’ need of preparation that helps your child excel in such exams. Having the achievement of qualifying in a NTSE exam on a student’s resume will surely go a long way in boosting his career prospects.
Ans. The foundation level course at Aakash does not overburden a student with unnecessary facts and figures. It actually helps in enhancing the competitive streak in a student. The course material is so developed in such a manner so that a student gets simultaneously prepared for both, school level as well as national level exams. Aakash understands the importance of school level exams and hence never lets a student get diverted from its preparation.
Ans. No. It is not mandatory for a student to prepare for such competitive exams. However, it is beneficial if a student prepares for exams like NTSE that are held at a national level as these let a student know where he stands in a national level competition. A student gets to know about his weaknesses which will make him/her work even harder for future examinations. Such exams also set a student in the right mental frame so that he prepares himself well for future exams such as JEE, AIPMT and AIIMS etc.
Ans. In the Foundations program courses where there is only one installment, fee that can be paid through Cash or DD. In this case neither local nor outstation cheques will be accepted. For the courses having more than one installment, the first installment is to be paid through DD/Cash and the rest can be paid by post dated A/C payee local cheques.

Based on the performance in this test, a student is offered scholarships. The percentage of fee waiver may vary according to the marks secured in this test.
Ans. Each class has a maximum of 40 students. Student teacher ratio is of 40:1. Less number of students in a class means greater attention for every student present. A teacher can give more time to each student and can clarify his doubts properly. Thus the students get trained effectively.
Ans. Aakash has been quite consistent with its performance when it comes to producing achievers. A good number of students who had taken coaching from Aakash qualified NTSE and many other such exams. The details of which have been mentioned in the ‘Our Results’ category in www.aakash.ac.in .
Ans. If a student asks for fee refund before the commencement of classes at Aakash, then the admission fee and the first installment of fee deposited will be refunded. However, the registration fees and admission cum scholarship test fees will not be refunded under any circumstances whatsoever.
Ans. Succeeding in any examination depends on the hard work and diligent efforts that a student puts into preparation. We at Aakash can only show the right path and provide the necessary guidance to a student. Aakash believes that for success in an examination 80% credit goes to a student and 10% credit goes to the mentors and the parents individually. Aakash can only encourage a student to work hard, provide him with the best quality of guidance and study materials and inculcate a sense of discipline in him, the rest lies with a student, whether he wants to succeed or not.
Ans.These exams help a student gauge his performance on an all India level. Qualifying in such a competitive exam definitely gives a student some brownie points on his resume. These exams boost a student’s confidence and catapult him into the league of achievers. Qualifying in such an exam is a symbol of excellence in education. So a student must give these exams his best shot.
Ans. The various programs carried out under the ‘Foundations’ banner try to develop the reasoning and analytical skills of students that come handy when they go for higher level competitive exams like JEE, NEET and AIIMS etc. These programs help to invoke the thinking process of a child by making him understand the concepts from the basics.
