The panel of experts will also answer student queries from across the country pertaining to issues related to time management, identification of interests and aptitude, balancing school studies with preparation for competitive exams and more.

Through this initiative, Aakash Institute seeks to help the students and parents across the country, particularly in the non-metros and smaller cities, with their career-related issues by highlighting the importance of planning and a clear focus on the goal as prerequisites for a successful career.

Through Aakash Paathshala, the panel experts from Aakash Institute will guide students with important subject matters, what career opportunities students should explore post completion of Class X depending on their strengths, ways to improve time management and identifying practices to secure higher scores in JEE/NEET.

So whether it is helping them prepare for the highly competitive NEET or JEE exams or instilling in them the confidence and self-belief to take on any challenge. The Aakash Pathshala is a step in the same direction and I am certain will be of immense help to students, especially those in tier-2 and tier-3 cities.”
