The School Integrated Program (SIP) – Your School’s One-Stop Solution for Competitive Exam Preparation
In today’s fast-paced educational landscape, schools serve as much more than academic institutions; they’re hubs of excellence that foster holistic and comprehensive learning. Moving beyond the scope of conventional textbooks, new-age schools are trying to cultivate creativity, critical thinking, emotional intelligence and practical knowledge to nurture well-rounded individuals who are prepared to thrive in a dynamic world.
After completing their schooling, a crucial phase in every student’s academic journey involves gearing up for entrance examinations. Navigating these state-level or national-level entrance exams can pose a formidable challenge. The intensity of preparation, societal pressure, competitive nature of the exam, finding the right coaching center, etc. can create a high-stress environment. In fact, traditional coaching centers often demand relocation and impose exorbitant fees, putting a significant burden on families.
But, what if there was an alternative solution that could provide students with top-notch coaching, without the need to relocate or spend a fortune? The School Integrated Program by Extramarks is that solution. In this blog, we discuss the key features of this comprehensive program and outline the benefits that make it an absolute game-changer for schools.

How SIP Can Benefit Educational Institutions
Extramarks recognizes the importance of individual student progress and the need for adequate resources to empower schools in becoming student’s preferred choice for exam preparations. Each year, a significant number of students drop school and enroll in full-time coaching institutes to prepare for competitive exams like JEE and NEET. Consequently, schools lose their top-performing students. Additionally, the high cost and limited availability of reputed coaching centers creates a barrier for students, restricting their preparation.
