The new national common entrance test for medical and engineering admissions- Neet, JEE (both Main and Advanced) from 2013 have made coaching very expensive. Colleges and coaching centres, which offer training for these exams at 10+2 level have increased fees up to 30%.
What is the reason behind such increase? They say additional syllabus needed to be covered for new tests by coaching extra classes within a limited period and they wanted to provide required study material even as the state government is yet to give clarity over adopting Neet.
Most of the corporate junior colleges and coaching centres were offering intensive coaching for Eamcet medical, AIEEE and IIT-JEE exams for 10+2 students from the last academic year till the end of August, 2012 in the old format with no official announcement over holding the new tests in 2013. However, all of a suddedn with the CBSE coming out with schedule for new tests early this month, the colleges and coaching centres have to change their 'Coaching Strategy'.
Initially, while Eamcet Medical Coaching was exclusively based on style syllabus (Inter-mediate) all these year, Neet requiers preparation in CBSE syllabus. According to coaching experts, there is an additional 30% syllabus in Neet over Eamcet medical test and they need to conduct additional classes to finish the syllabus since only four months is left for students to prepare for these tests.
Normally, the coaching centres finish the syllabus by December and start revision in January and February before students appear for Inter exams in the month of March.
