The Grey Side of 'entrance exams'

Wednesday, October 21, 2015
By Karishma Chopra

A spate of student suicides in the coaching hub of the country has sent shock waves knocking at the doorsteps in every nook and corner. Entrance exams are arguably one of the most feared things for students and the rise in number of suicide cases also shifts the spotlight to the verified fact that - out of 100 students in Kota - 45% students develop psychosomatic problem, resulting into first stage of depression and fitness problem. Every year over 1 lakh students

travel to Kota from all across India mostly for IIT preparation.

Parents too have a crucial role in moulding the careers of their children and the closer they are to them, the better supervisors they can be when it comes to encouraging their kids to value their study time. With this reference, I’m writing to you on behalf of AESPL (Aakash Institute), as a responsible institute serving the education industry for the past 27 years to advise both parents and students on:

  • The idea of shifting cities for Engineering/Medical coaching is passé
  • How to cope up with exam failure
  • Advice to parents and students - Need for right counseling
  • 'Right age to start preparing for entrance exams
