When it comes to NEET coaching, offline coaching has been in the limelight, and students didn’t mind shifting from one city to another just to get the best NEET coaching. But it became a thing of the past as Covid-19 enforced the teachers and students adapt to Online NEET Coaching. Covid-19 taught us well about how to shift from offline mode to online mode, as the students were unable to travel from their homes to coaching centers and coaching centers were also helpless as they couldn’t operate because of the government protocols and restrictions. But this change in the whole NEET coaching scenario led to a debate on which mode of NEET coaching is better, offline or online?
Pros and Cons of Online & Offline NEET Coaching
Students have to commute to their NEET coaching centers daily and it becomes a burden when combined with going to school. The students get so exhausted by the end of the day that they’re left with no time to indulge in other activities. Whereas on the contrary, students can attend offline NEET coaching from the ease of their home, not just at home they can practically attend their NEET classes even during a vacation. The time spent on the commute can be utilized for other activities or for practicing NEET mock tests.
Offline coaching does not offer much flexibility as students can’t make any changes to their schedules. The timings and timetable aren’t flexible enough, and if they have some other engagements they won’t be able to attend the NEET coaching sessions. But when it comes to NEET online classes, students can make their own study schedule and take classes whenever they want. They can manage their school, NEET coaching, and other activities like a cakewalk.
Even though NEET offline coaching offers doubt classes and sessions where students can virtually interact with their teachers and classmates but the lack of personal touch is still there. Whereas when it comes to NEET offline classes, students can directly ask questions to their teachers and even discuss doubts with their fellow classmates.
In offline coaching, there is still a lack of transparency as the parents cannot regularly keep a track of whether the students are attending classes or not, they don’t know how well their child is doing in the class, or how much course syllabus has been covered. Also a lot of times because of busy schedules parents don’t attend parents-teachers meetings. But with NEET offline learning parents can keep a track of their child’s development, his/her strengths, and weaknesses. They can also access the online report cards and interact with teachers online.
Students may not take their NEET exam preparation seriously during online NEET preparation as they’re at the comfort of their home and don’t know about the progress their fellow classmates are making. Healthy competition is missing, whereas, in offline NEET coaching classrooms, students are constantly monitored by their teachers and interact with their batchmates, this plays an important role in keeping them motivated.
Everything comes with its own unique pros and cons and so does offline and online coaching for NEET preparation. But you have to figure out what kind of study schedule you truly want and then opt for a suitable option. If you want the best of both worlds, you can enroll in Aakash Byju’s Hybrid NEET Coaching course, which allows you to attend both online and offline classes and get one step closer to success.
