IIT JEE coaching in Pune

How to prepare for IIT JEE in Pune

I have heard people saying that Catching A Cheetah Is Easier Than Cracking IIT JEE. Similar are the talks about medical entrance exams like AIIMS and AFMC. But is it really that difficult?
After reading this blog and the relevant links, you will be very much clear about various misconceptions and at the same point of time you will be able to make proper strategy to clear JEE or medical entrance exams.

Just after the completion of class 10th you have options of joining Science, Commerce or Arts. Science is recommended because a fundamental knowledge of math and science till 12th makes a person quite confident. Even at later stages, if a science student thinks of changing his stream to Commerce or Arts, it is very much feasible. But other way round it’s not possible.

Once a student has chosen science, he must decide whether he wants to be an engineer or doctor. Engineering aspirants should strictly avoid biology and similarly medical aspirant should avoid math. As these are very competitive exams and are very tough to crack and on top of that, Bio is burden to Engg aspirants and Math is a burden for Medical aspirants.

Best way to clear JEE and get into IITs is, to start the preparation as early as possible. Choose appropriate coaching classes for JEE preparation in your city. While making choice you should keep following parameters in mind:

Ø  Who will take your lectures ?
Ø  Competency of the faculty team
Ø  Stability of Faculty team in past 1 – 2 yrs
Ø  Results of students (Taught by Existing Faculty Team)
Ø  Commutation timing, Infrastructure and logistics.

Now let us discuss coaching classes in Pune and touch upon their plus points and minus points. Some of the coaching institutes for JEE below are untested as they are new and some are trying to establish their base in Pune.

M. Prakash Academy 
Year established : 2000
Promoter : M Prakash
Presence : Only Pune
TOP Rank in IIT JEE Advance 2013: All India Rank 137 (Deven Diwakar)

Entrance : Only one entrance Test on 6th April 2014 at MIT Engg college Pune

Arguably the best math teacher of country M Prakash sir owns this academy and teaches math. In past MPA has given fabulous results. In 2013 top 2 students of Pune were from M. Prakash Academy AIR 137 and 155. Physics dept is handled by Mr. Vishwesh who is a very competent teacher.

Why one should join M.Prakash Academy:

1.     Most of the students qualifying mathematics Olympiad from India have been thankful to Mr. Prakash for his guidance. Second best institute for Mathematics Olympiad is far below M.Prakash Academy.
2.     This Academy has never been in any controversy like, changing teachers or Fake Result IIT JEE Pune.
3.     Selection criteria is very genuine and if you get selected then for next few years you will be in a pool of brilliant students and in the hands of good teachers.

Disadvantages of the M. Prakash Academy:

1.     Chemistry has never been M.Prakash strength. Many students of M.Prakash Academy have been attending Chemistry at other institutes.
2.     Academy has only one centre,( kothrud) and hence commutation time is a cause of concern for most of the students across the city. With very limited or almost no time availability for CBSE and ISC students.
3.     They don’t have their own study material.

Prime Academy Pune 
Year established : 2009
Promoter : Lalit Kumar
Qualification : BTech ( Elec) IIT Mumbai
Presence : Pune, Shikrapur
TOP Rank in IIT JEE Advance 2013: All India Rank 159 (Kedar Joshi)

Entrance: 85 % in Science  & Math in 9th or 10th  or clear Prime Entrance Test ( Free ) 

Prime Academy Pune was established in 2009 by Lalit Kumar, B.Tech graduate from IIT Bombay.  Prime Academy has 6 branches across Pune (MG Road, Deccan, MG Road, Pimpri, Aundh and Wanawadi) .  Most of the students who have qualified IIT JEE from pune have been taught by faculties who are in Prime Academy now. In terms of top rank in IIT JEE 2013, Prime Academy is second among all JEE coaching classes, ( Only M.Prakash Academy had better top rank than Prime Academy Pune) as Kedar Joshi got All india Rank 159 in IIT JEE 2013.

Why one should join Prime Academy Pune:

1.     Since quite a few years, most of the top IIT JEE faculties in Pune are consistently teaching at Prime Academy Pune. Just to name a few, Lalit Kumar, Jaswant Charan, Pradeep Nagar, Pritam sengupta, Rahul Waware, Sredhar Babu, all are IIT graduates.
2.     Even average students can get admission in prime but still percentage of students clearing IIT JEE is quite high.
3.     Marketing and publicity is minimal and most of the enrollments in Prime Academy are through good word of mouth by current and past students.
4.     Prime Academy Pune has tie with renown schools and colleges like Bishop and hence students save commutation time and studies of board and competitive exams are synchronized, making the system more efficient.

Disadvantages of Prime Academy Pune:

1.     Parents have complained about the lack of communication between parents and Prime administrators.
2.     They don’t have their own study material.
3.     Students are unhappy because of delayed results and errors in answer keys in the internal exam.

Few things to be noted: NGO Dakshana foundation has chosen Prime Academy for IIT JEE coaching to scholars of Jawahar Navoday Vidyalaya across the country for shikrapur branch. 

Year established : 1992
Promoter : D K Goel
Qualification : B.Tech from IIT Delhi.
Presence : All India also in Pune

FIITJEE was founded by D K Goel, IIT Delhi graduate in early 90s in Delhi and currently it’s the biggest chain of IIT JEE coaching institute across the country. FIITJEE pune is the part of the this chain. Being a corporate structure, FIITJEE is one of the most systematic institute. Parents are interacted with on regular basis through auto generated SMS and emails with details reports of attendance and scores of their wards.

Why one should join FIITJEE

1.     FIITJEE has very good error proof study material.
2.     Tests and results are updated and students get to compare themselves with many a thousands of other students enrolled with FIITJEE Test Series across the country.
3.     FIITJEE has school tie ups and hence classes are conducted in school premises only which helps students to save commutation time.

Disadvantage of FITJEE :

1.     FIITJEE spends a lot in heavy marketing and relies mainly on national brand value. Quality of faculty is mediocre.
2.     FIITJEE, not being national level institute can’t adjust much as per local students requirements.
3.     FITJEE has to make do with whatever faculty available after Pune’s best faculty absorbed by the top local institutes.

Bakliwal Tutorials
Year established : 2005
Promoter : Vaibhav Bakliwal
Qualification : BTec IIT Mumbai
Presence : Only Pune
TOP Rank in IIT JEE 2013 : All India Rank 246 (Pranav Vaish)

Website :

Bakliwal Tutorials IIT (BT) ,  was founded by Vaibhav Bakliwal, B.Tech graduate form IIT Bombay, in 2005. In 2010 (Omkar Thakur AIR 11) ,2011( Rohan Prinja AIR 53)  and 2012 ( Kevin Daniel AIR 92) BT,  got 3 back to back pune toppers in IIT JEE and arguably became the best IIT JEE coaching institute in Pune.  BT has 9 branches across pune.

Why one should join Bakliwal Tutorials:

1.     Owner of the institute ( Vaibhav Bakliwal) is a very good motivator.
2.     Good students are called in separate batch called COC ( champions of champions ) and get to see good teachers.
3.     Alumni network is very strong and current students get to meet seniors from IIT very frequently which boosts their confidence and moral.

Disadvantages of Bakliwal Tutorials:

1.     Stability of faculty is a huge problem and student get to see different teachers every now and then, hampering the continuity and moral. Consequently BT’s result dropped drastically in 2013 and their top rank was not even among top 5 of Pune.
2.     Vaibhav Bakliwal himself doesn’t take lectures except their entrance program lectures, COC batch and Repeaters
3.     Since only COC batch is paid special attention, students of all other batches get ignored and 50% of the average students leave the course in middle.
4.     Sometimes when strength decreases complete batch is cancelled. In 2012, students who had enrolled for Vimanagar , Aundh and camp batch were asked to travel to other centers as their batches were cancelled.

Advantages of joining Pace.

1.     Pace has tie ups with schools and hence student saves commutation time as he need not shuttle between school and coaching classes.
