Competitive Examinations

Coaching Programme for Competitive Examinations

A sizable number of our students take one competitive exam or other. Owing to lack of proper training and motivation, hardly any one of them succeed in getting a job that matches their qualification and interest. If they are trained well, many of them may be able to fulfil their dream of getting a position in government service or in any organized sector like banking, insurance and corporations, to name a few. It is possible for students to prepare for competitive exams along with their regular degree programmes. Thus, a comprehensive coaching programme will go a long way towards helping students in taking competitive exams and job aptitude test successfully.

Objective of the Programme:

To prepare students to take competitive examinations like Bank Test, SSC, PSC, RRB etc. and common aptitude tests successfully.
