From Kota to Your Classroom: Bridging the Gap for JEE & NEET Success with SIP

December 1, 2023 | By: Extramarks

Kota to your classroom

A common question that many JEE and NEET aspirants grapple with is whether heading to  Kota for competitive exam preparation is the right choice. Every year over two lakh students travel to Kota in search of the best coaching institutes to pursue their aspirations of clearing IIT-JEE and NEET successfully.  But, what is so special about Kota that draws students from all around the nation to prepare for competitive exams? 

The Legacy of Kota in Competitive Exam Preparation

Over the years, Kota has emerged as a premiere coaching hub for JEE and NEET aspirants. This is due to its proven track record in fostering a rigorous academic culture through specialized coaching. Students can find the best coaching institutes, experienced faculty from IITs and NITs , updated study material, separate doubt centers and a conducive learning environment that builds motivation.

Here are some key features of Kota’s coaching model that have contributed to its success:

1. Intensive Academic Environment: Kota’s coaching institutes cultivate an immersive learning atmosphere that revolves around disciplined study routines and a competitive spirit among students

2. Specialized Expertise: The Kota coaching model thrives on expert faculty that are known for their subject mastery and can offer tailored guidance to students. These educators are generally alumni from prestigious institutions who bring first-hand experience and in-depth knowledge of subjects 

3. Structured Curriculum & Learning Material: Students can find expert-curated study material  including textbooks, online resources, practice papers, worksheets and more. This helps students cover crucial topics thoroughly and boost their preparation 

However, the city’s intense coaching culture can often become too overbearing for students, leading to immense pressure and stress. These are a few common challenges that students face when relocating to Kota for preparation:

1. The academic environment demands rigorous schedules that involves long hours of studying

2. The competitive atmosphere breeds a constant sense of comparison that builds self-doubt and peer pressure

3. High financial costs as relocating to Kota requires students to cover costs for coaching, hostel, mess and other expenses

While parents aim to equip their children with optimal exam readiness, achieving ‘Kota Level of preparation’ without actually relocating to Kota often seems unattainable. This discrepancy stems from inadequate specialized educators and limited digital infrastructure, among various other constraints at conventional schools. As a result, an increasing number of parents now seek schools that can provide high-quality competitive exam coaching at a reasonable cost. 

This is where the Extramarks School Integrated Program (SIP) steps in, presenting an end-to-end coaching delivery model seamlessly integrated into school systems. Let’s take a detailed look at the key features of SIP and what makes this comprehensive solution a powerful tool for new-age schools.  

Introducing the School Integrated Program (SIP)

SIP is a customized offering by Extramarks that is tailored to empower schools in creating a dynamic learning environment for competitive exam aspirants. As students move from Class 10 to Class 11, they face the choice of opting for local coaching institutes, moving to Kota for better preparation or depending on self-study for exams like JEE and NEET. Innovative solutions like SIP act as a game-changer for schools by transforming them into prime learning centers catering to competitive exam aspirants. 

It offers customized packages that integrate seamlessly within a school’s existing curriculum and can be tailored based on their unique needs. Instead of searching for the right coaching center, students can channel their time and energy into preparing for JEE and NEET within their school premises, that too at an affordable cost.

SIP is crafted to offer tailored packages for both JEE and NEET aspirants, alongside a foundational program encompassing study material for these exams, beginning from Class 8.
