Do you want to prepare for bank exams ? You may be in a dilemma while choosing the coaching centre where you would pursue training. I would like to share my thoughts on this. Hope it may help you.
Bank exams are very much sought after by educated young graduates, for the simple reason that banking career will bring to one social status, potential for career growth, good work environment, job satisfaction and last not but the least, decent remuneration. Needless to say, that the selection process is competitive. ‘The cake is small, but the takers are too many’. Careful guidance and focused preparation are necessary for ensuring success in bank exams. Here is where the need of an apt coaching institute, which may become a torch light to your success.
Let us try to understand how to choose the best bet to us, when it comes to choosing a coaching centre that may change the course of our lives.
Location of the coaching institute is very crucial. If the coaching institute is in your city, it is perfect. Daily commuting from your home may make your life easy. But the less fortunate ones need not worry. If the institute has residential facilities of its own, or if it can arrange one for you, that too may be equally good. There are students who would prefer to be away from their home, while preparing for competitive exams for two reasons. One is that they can be away from domestic demands, family visits and other nuisances that may eat up their precious time. The other is that staying in a hostel or in a PG facility with other aspirants will offer the chance for combined study. Here, one has to be very choosy. Choose your friends very carefully. Try to get sandwiched by brighter and more committed minds. Success shall come on your way.
Class Timings: –
Here the essence of my advice is this. You should get enough time for self-study. Coaching centres and teachers can only create an environment and right setting for study. But, the success will depend on ‘training your brain’. Continuous practice is the key to success. Whatever your have gathered from the institute must be revised, the very day without any compromise. You must find enough time in reading the newspapers, prepare your own diary of events. Keep yourself busy, but enjoy every moment.
Quality Faculty Members: –
Faculty members make the real difference. There is no substitute to experience. Perfect guiding and mentoring can come only from the experienced hands, and to be honest, they are far and few between. Competitive exams are competitive in nature, and the preparation has to be different altogether. Committed and experienced hands may make things easier for you. Hence before joining, you may gather all relevant information regarding faculty members. Experience, teaching methods, approachability – all would matter. A few demo classes can be asked for, before you may call the shot.
Reviews by Students: –
These days students’ reviews are relied upon. There are many students who may give relevant and authentic information regarding their coaching institute. You can go through official websites of the centres, read student reviews, learn about their reflections on the institute, its facilities and standards. Social media platforms may also help you understand more about the centres.
Success Records: –
Good institutes are transparent and publish the list of their successful students. They know that the successful students are their brand ambassadors. Success records will be a true guide.
Fee Structure: –
Quality always comes with a price tag. Good institutes may charge you higher. But, providing good quality training, by retaining trained and experienced faculty members and providing updated materials will be costly affairs. Price should definitely be a consideration- but it should not be the sole consideration.
Size of the Batch: –
Size of the batch should match infrastructural facilities. Also that, teachers should be able to give attention to students.
Comprehensive Study Materials: –
The best institute is the one that provides you with maximum study materials with closest approximation to real exams. Preparation on study materials is a work in progress for esteemed institutes. Felicitous study materials are needed for building concepts, regular practicing and testing our preparedness. Mock tests are essential ingredients to test your abilities. A good institute will have excellent labs or online facilities to provide students with real exam feeling.
Let me presume that this write up of mine will help you understand the factors that must be considered to choose the institute to prepare for competitive exams. I would personally recommend ICD KOLLAM, the most trusted name in the field of competitive exams training to those who aspire to become bankers. They mean what they are. Experience, Commitment and Focus – all are built-in-one; that is ICD KOLLAM which has just completed its 26 years of glory.
