Faster and More effective are 2 words that we would like to introduce this course as.
Technology today is moving faster than ever. What may be new today will be outdated tomorrow. In today’s fast paced world, time is more valuable than it ever was and everyone wants the best with least inconvenience and why not, that’s the smart way to do it!
This model is designed for success. Modular delivery from elite E learning certified Princeton Review Trainers** through real time, live online sessions (These trainers are certified to train students through virtual classrooms globally) with support, review of diagnostic test scores & feedback, extra help, workshops – basically all that you get in a classroom course at our centres only that this is much faster with classes thrice a week and you don’t have to travel to a classroom. We use the platform to increase no. of classes compared to our classroom course to develop a faster, a more robust and effective course for those who have the right internet bandwidth to take these classes. Students save tonnes of time that they would otherwise waste in travel/traffic and use the same time to practice more in a far more compressed & productive course with optimum time lines. The faculty remain the same throughout the duration of a batch and are contactable to set up extra help sessions/workshops. You have access to a recorded version of every class on your student portal within 24 hours of a class.

Live online classes: While most systems meet technical requirements, in order to ensure that our student’s experience is smooth, we conduct a dry run (high recommended for MAC users) for every batch of fresh students before they commence their classes. For the dry run, we share details and links of the platform on which we provide our live online classes, with the students. The objective of the dry run is to sensitize the student and help configure the student’s system with requirements and suggest simple measures to students so that after the dry run is successful for them, they are able to attend classes with no technical hassle throughout the course.
