Q7. How should one select the best Coaching Institute?
Even though this decision is person specific, but we feel that the study result comes on the basis of only 2 factors :

- Guidance of the Teacher.
Based on this fact, Institute should be such that the teachers are well experienced, stable and take pain along with the student. Also the student teacher ratio should be optimum to provide individual attention.
