Till now students were struggling hard with the high cut-offs of reputed universities and colleges to secure admissions but now they will have to face the challenge for gaining admissions to coaching institutes as well. With the increasing number of students securing high percentages in Class X and XII exams, coaching centers too have set cut-offs for admissions. The high scores have become a trend now so the private institutes offering coaching for competitive exams after class XII have set a cut-off of overall aggregate 90% or minimum in science and mathematics.
Apart from setting high cut-offs in the qualifying exam, many IIT coachings have also based their admissions on entrance tests.
Owners of some institutes expressed that the reason behind this is to get the brilliant students on board. Many coaching centers even run discounts to attract high scorers so that they take admission in these coachings. Some coaching classes set high cut-offs only for particular batches where students are given intense training throughout the year.
But some institute that offer many batches at various branches, believe in filling seats as more important than the cut-offs. Such coachings will close admission process as soon as the batches get filled. Many of them offer customized coaching as per the need of the students.
Sources from Ideal Coaching institute revealed that entrance test and cut-offs are only publicity stunts played to attract students. Finally those who can afford to pay the high fee are given admissions. Many coaching classes have set a minimum cut-off mark for entrance tests also.
