While there have been solely shut to 40 students on the primary day of the coaching programme, the quantity of students attending the net classes has crossed the 300-mark in every week.
Sudha mentioned, “Initially, we conducted classes for the students in our friend circles. As the word of mouth spread, students in Class XII and others, who have been preparing for the NEET, from across the state started attending the classes.”
The class is performed from 11:30 am to 1 pm every day. “After analyzing the past seven years’ question papers, we have identified a set of important topics to be prioritized. We are also teaching both the Class XI and XII subjects from the scratch. We have finished two lessons already,” she mentioned.
As of now, the academics are specializing in biology, which is their space of specialization. “We are waiting for teachers who are specialized in other subjects to join us to expand the classes.”
Now that the 7.5% inner reservation is in place for the federal government college students in medical schools, Sudha mentioned many of their students have secured a medical seat. “This has given hope to other students and the number of government school students who are willing to take up the NEET has significantly increased. It is to help them, especially in this time of the pandemic, that we started the training programme. Because, unlike the private school students, they cannot afford hefty fees to join coaching centres.”
