We believe our “Aakash” brand is associated with quality coaching and a proven student selection track record in Medical and Engineering Undergraduate Degree Entrance Examinations. The entire concept at Aakash is designed to help students excel with holistic preparation, wherein they are exposed to modern methods of teaching and a Competitive environment that aims to help them perform under pressure. These programs not only help students to prepare for the various Entrance Examinations like NEET, AIIMS, JIPMER, JEE (Main and Advanced), BITSAT and other State Level Entrance Exams for admission in undergraduate courses but also prepare them for School Boards and Junior Competitive Examinations such as NTSE, KVPY and Olympiads. Further, the teaching methodology adopted by Aakash focuses on conceptual knowledge base and application based questions.
Standardized Content & Coaching Methods and Qualified Faculty
We have a centralized in-house process for curriculum and content development, faculty training and monitoring, led by our National Academic Team. This centralized process helps us maintain consistent coaching standards and delivery across our learning channels. Our systematic Academic Delivery Model aims to enhance our students' conceptual knowledge base and improve their accuracy and speed through assessment and testing. We have a Competitive environment with personalized attention that helps to analyze our students’ performance. We also focus on the holistic development of our students through various activities like proper counseling, motivational sessions and conduction of regular student/parent-teacher meetings with an aim to help them handle Exam pressure, minimize stress level and to be acquainted with time management.
Our curriculum and content contain illustrative theory and application-based questions. Based on our students' performance, and feedback from faculty members and students, we annually review, refine and update our curriculum content through the centralized process, improving the quality of our curriculum and content.
With our large pool of faculty members, we are able to maintain a student-faculty ratio that helps ensure adequate supervision by our faculty members and effective response to each student’s need on an individual basis.
Tests and Examinations
A series of tests and Examinations are conducted each fortnight and term for each of our courses at our Aakash Centres to evaluate our students and prepare them for facing the various Board and other Competitive Examinations. We have developed the “Test Series”, which includes fortnightly tests and term Examinations.
- For students enrolled in Aakash Medical, we conduct the AIIMS Explorer Test Series and the All India Aakash Test Series on a periodic basis, depending on the school Examination pattern.
- For students enrolled in Aakash IIT-JEE, we conduct the Success Magnet Test Series and the All India Aakash Test Series on a periodic basis, in addition to subjective tests conducted on a periodic basis depending on the school Examination pattern.
- For students enrolled in Aakash Foundations, we also conduct periodically All India Aakash Test Series, Annual Syllabus Tests and Mock Tests, in addition to the NTSE / Olympiad tests conducted based on the schedule of the Examinations.
Question papers for the Examinations of various courses are prepared in accordance with the Examination patterns prescribed by the respective Boards governing such courses. We provide our students with a printed model answer paper after each Examination, along with the marking scheme which clarifies their doubts on various questions asked in the Examinations. We also conduct mock Examinations in a manner similar to that in which the various Board Examinations are conducted, in order to offer a realistic experience to our Medical and Engineering batch students with an aim to help boost their confidence. Such questions also have a strong focus on the NEET and JEE Examination patterns, which are consistently renewed, so that our students are familiar with the Examination patterns and styles. Depending on the frequency of the Examinations, we set a fresh set of questions, and also conduct National Assessment Examinations to prepare our students.
In order to discover and nurture talent, we conduct the ACST, the ANTHE and the NEST. The ACST is generally conducted during weekends as scheduled, aimed at students in Class 8 to 12 and who could not make it for the ANTHE and NEST. The ANTHE is generally conducted in the last week of October and is aimed at students in Class 8 to 10 while the NEST is conducted in April and aimed at students in Class 9, 10, 11 & 12. We provide scholarships for qualifying students from these tests to enrol in our programs.
All India Aakash Test Series (AIATS):
The AIATS is conducted for students at Aakash Centres across India, giving them the opportunity to test their knowledge at an all-India level for both Aakashians and non-Aakashians. The test papers prepared by Aakash faculty members are aimed at preparing students for the actual Entrance Examinations and allow them to benchmark their performance against other students. These tests also help us identify and attract students in Class 11 and 12 with a potential to score well and make selections in their desired Medical or Engineering course to enrol in our courses.
