Hello PF members , I am in class 10th presently in India. I want to be selected in engineering entrance examinations. In India best are IITs ( Indian Institute of Technology) Now there are certain coaching classes in India which prepare us for engineering entrance exams and consists of faculty who all are themselves engineers and qualified professors. These have three types of courses : 1. Integrated courses : In these type of courses coaching has tie up with schools. So in 11th and 12th classes , physics , chemistry and maths in "schools" are taught by qualified professors of coaching. So we don't have to rush to schools and coaching both and hence save our time. In these type , coaching faculty manage both school syllabus of 12th i.e. board as well as engineering preparation. 2. Classroom courses : In these type of courses we will have to go to school separately and then to coaching. School will take care of ICSE[/PLAIN] [Broken] boards and coaching will prepare for engineering exams after 12th , in 11th and 12th classes. 3. Correspondence courses : In these courses , we get a booklet of coaching classes and we solve it ourselves at home. We only have to go to schools. So I will take a home tution and will do self study. The government of India is now planning to consider board exams 50% for engineering exams. So which course is best suited for me and why ? Thanks in advance.
