Learning Success Mantra with Aakash
No one is born with the magic wand of success, but it can be achieved with relentless hard work, persistence and endurance. However, hard work without proper guidance doesn't bear the desired fruit of success since it (success) is the state of mind that needs guidance in the right direction. At Aakash, we believe in ‘learning’ that aims to bring success through standardized content and coaching methods.

Aakash: A Brand
Emergence of Aakash as a brand is not an overnight accomplishment but the outcome of persistent hard work compounded with perseverance and patience of the great visionary Mr. J. C. Chaudhry, Chairman cum Managing Director, Aakash Educational Services Limited (AESL). He dreamt of imparting quality education to the students and worked hard towards his goal with diligence and determination that today Aakash offers comprehensive test preparatory services for Medical and Engineering Entrance Examinations and other competitive and scholarship examinations such as NTSE, KVPY and Olympiads etc.
We believe our “Aakash” brand is associated with quality coaching and a proven student selection track record in various Medical and Engineering Undergraduate Degree Entrance Exams and foundation level exams. According to CRISIL, we are the largest educational test preparatory service provider in India. We have been able to deepen our brand recognition and improve our brand recall through a variety of means such as our strong student performance, pan-India network of classrooms, quality faculty, comprehensive study material, modern infrastructure, integrated systems and processes, and target-oriented marketing. Our positive brand perception is evident from our high Student Count and the fact that many students progress from our Foundation Courses to our Medical or Engineering Courses.
The presence of Aakash centres across India also contributes to our brand awareness and increases accessibility to students at various locations. Our knowledge of the national market as well as regional market assists us in developing coaching methodologies to address changing student requirements. Our Owned Centres and Franchisee Centres have grown from 78 and 52 in FY-2016 to 117 and 70 in FY-2018, respectively. As of March 31, 2018, we have presence across India with 187 Aakash entres across 103 Cities and 23 States/ Union Territories.
Our brand is widely known in the Education field in India. We believe that the quality of our educational content and the effectiveness of our teaching methodologies, as evidenced by the number of selections of our students, have made us one of the top choices for students intending to qualify for Undergraduate Medical and Engineering Courses.
