JEE Main and NEET aspirants may avail free coaching at government teaching centers from next year. Apart from medical and engineering entrance tests, the coaching will also be provided for UGC-NET, management and pharma entrance exams.
According to a report, the Government is planning to convert around 3,000 test practice centres across the country into teaching centres. Along with conducting mock tests, the centres will provide free coaching to students for prestigious higher education entrance tests.
It is expected that the practice centres will start conducting mock tests from September 8 this year, but free coaching facility is likely to begin from May next year.
Students can start registration for practice centres from September 1.
“Government plans to convert these practice centres into teaching centres. They will not charge any fees and so will be especially helpful for talented students from sections where aspirations are high but private coaching is impossible due to financial constraints,” a senior official said.
The Government’s step is likely to hit the private coaching institutes, who huge amounts as coaching fees from students.
