Kota’s IIT-JEE magic now in Mumbai
Kota is a city which sees over 50,000 students coming in every year with hopes and aspirations to prepare for their future career path. A large number of coaching institutes are in position to help these young minds achieve their dream, be it in the engineering stream or in the medical field. Ever since its inception, Resonance (a premier IIT-JEE coaching institute based in Kota) has played a major role in establishing Kota as the “Mecca of education” in India. Almost 40 % of students getting into the prestigious IITs come after preparing from this little town in Rajasthan. Constant improvisation of teaching methods and well-updated study material followed by these institutes gives the students the added edge that they need while facing the most competitive engineering entrance examination in our country, the IIT-JEE.
Founded in 2001 by Mr. R K Verma with the aim of taking the educational system to such a level that there is a perfect natural harmony or ‘resonance’ between the students and the faculty, the entire Resonance team has to this date done perfect justice to their goals. If results are to be taken as a yardstick, Resonance, with 1816 selections in IIT-JEE 2011 alone, has more than just achieved their aim of erasing the age old myth that getting into IIT is only for the exceptionally intelligent students. Each member of the faculty shares the vision of the institute to make the impossible possible. The tremendous success of numerous so-called average students from Resonance in IIT-JEE over the past eight years stands testimony to the fact that hard work and perseverance leads to good results.
Over the last four years, Resonance has seen sizeable increase in the results produced. Resonance boasts of having one of the best faculty team across the country in terms of strength, coaching experience, qualification, competence and most importantly, the care for its students. The 250 plus strong faculty division comprises largely of IITians and hence is in the best position to help the students jump over the hurdles offered by IIT-JEE. Besides constantly revising its study material data bank, Resonance also focuses on constantly elevating the standard of their faculty through effective Faculty Training Programs (FTPs) adding new and better faculty each year. The regular class room students from Resonance under the guidance of dedicated faculty members go through the best available coaching material comprising Daily Practice Problems (DPPs), study material packages (sheets) and Periodic Assessment Tests (PATs), hence making them well-prepared and confident before giving the IIT-JEE. The faculty builds strong and productive bonds with the students through constant interaction while in class as well as through regular doubt discussion classes hence achieving the ultimate aim of the organization to be in resonance with the students. Through frequent academic performance analysis (subject wise, topic wise, question wise etc.), the students are constructively evaluated constantly, helping them rectify their mistakes at the right time and in the right manner. Even student satisfaction surveys are conducted every month to see to it that the faculty performance is competent and up to the mark. The academic administration and management along with the academic Research and Development (R&D) team sees to it that the students get nothing less than the best that they rightfully deserve.
About Mumbai Centre
Ever expanding backed by its phenomenal success, Resonance has spread out to fifteen different cities reaching thousands more of students who could not shift to Kota for their studies. Mumbai started enjoying the benefits of the “Kota model” of education via eight different centers that have been set up in the city in 2008. Besides eight own study centers at Andheri, Borivali, Churchgate, Dadar, Govandi, Kharghar, Nerul, Panvel and Thane; Resonance has also tied up with some reputed colleges like Mithibai College (Vile Parle), Ramnarain Ruia College (Matunga), Jai Hind College (Churchgate), Thakur Junior College (Kandivali), Swami Ramkrishna Paramhans Junior College (Govandi), and Shubham Raje Jr. College (Thane). Besides providing best quality education, integrated tie-ups save precious time for the students by avoiding having to sit through two lectures for each topic, one in the college and one in the coaching class. Students from other colleges can opt for normal class room contact program course while attending classes in their own colleges.
As a front runner in career oriented education, Resonance has always aimed at always giving that little bit extra back to the world of knowledge. The person who is heading the operations in Mumbai, Mr. Lokesh Khandelwal (IIT-Kanpur) - a famous name in the coaching circles, is known for his passion towards excellence in studies. A brilliant motivator besides being an excellent teacher, he has shifted base to Mumbai with the aim of bringing out those gems in Mumbai who can fulfill his dream of getting gold medals in all the three international Olympiads, Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics, for our country. Mumbai with a commendable record of about 30 % contribution to NTSE scholarships every year does not surprisingly play a major role in the Kishore Vaigyanik Protsahan Yojana (KVPY) and the Olympiads. Mr. Khandelwal plans to change that forever with some serious focus on quality education. Hence it won’t be a mistake to say that Mumbai will see Kota style of success from now on, a good news for all the Mumbai students aiming to crack the IIT-JEE and other competitive examinations
