The dark reality of IIT-JEE coaching institutes is that they are a 20-billion-rupee industry that exploits the dreams of gullible Indians. The coaching institutes are a racket that operates like a well-oiled machine.
IIT-JEE coaching institutes have been around for over two decades now. Every year, close to 2 lakh students takes the IIT-JEE exam with the hope of cracking it and getting into one of the IITs.
The coaching institutes play on the fears and aspirations of these students and their parents. They promise sky-high success rates and guarantee a seat in an IIT. But the dark reality is that these institutes are nothing more than money-making machines. They milk the students and their parents for all they are worth. In the process, they destroy the dreams of many and turn the IITs into a farce.
The Dark Reality of IIT-JEE Coaching Institutes
IIT-JEE coaching institutes have become like any other big business in India. They use aggressive marketing, deep discounts, and other incentives to lure students to their centres. The institutes charge exorbitant fees. They also offer crash courses and fast-paced coaching to give an edge to the students. But in this process, the students become nothing more than a commodity. The institutes are only interested in money, and the students are reduced to just another sale.
The High-Pressure Environment of Kota
The pressure to crack the IIT-JEE exam and get into one of the top institutes has driven thousands of students to the city of Kota. Located in Rajasthan, Kota has become a hub for IIT-JEE coaching institutes. Students put in extra hours of work, sacrificing their health and well-being. But, in spite of all the hard work, there is no guarantee of success. The coaching institutes do not take any responsibility for the student’s performance. Rather, they blame the students for their failure.
The Exploitative IIT-JEE Coaching Institute
The IIT-JEE coaching institutes have become highly exploitative. Every year, the fees for the coaching programmes go up. But the quality of coaching remains the same. The institutes hire ‘teaching assistants’ who are paid a pittance for long hours of work. The quality of teaching is poor and the teachers do not have any interest in the students. The institutes are only interested in making money and have no interest in the success of their students.
The Derailed Dreams of Young Aspirants
The IIT-JEE coaching institutes have derailed the dreams of many young aspirants. Students spend several lakhs of rupees in pursuit of their dreams, only to be let down. Every year, many students put in extra effort to get into an IIT but fail. The failure rate is high, and the institutes do not bear any responsibility for their students’ performance.
A Ray of Hope
Thankfully, there is still a ray of hope for the students. The government has taken steps to regulate the coaching institutes. There is a new plan to set up IIT coaching centres in schools and colleges across the country. These centres are expected to provide better quality teaching and a better atmosphere for the aspirants. The government also provides financial support to needy students to pursue their dreams.
The IIT-JEE coaching institutes have become a multi-billion-rupee industry. It is an exploitative system that caters to the affluent and exploits the dreams of the vulnerable. The government has taken some steps to regulate the institutes and provide quality education to the students. There is still a long way to go before the system becomes completely fair and just. The aspirants should be cautious when choosing a coaching institute and make sure they do not fall prey to the exploitative system. In order to fulfil their dreams, they should focus on hard work and dedication, instead of the shortcuts offered by the institutes.
