FIITJEE

The Velammal schools in association with FIITJEE promotes the preparation of students to give the competitive exams for entry into renowned higher education institutions.

PATTERN PROOF TEACHING METHODOLOGY

The program is designed with an integrated study plan to make students have teaching plan negotiated in a comprehensive way so that they do well in IIT-JEE (irrespective of the pattern), Boards, NTSE, KVPY, Olympiads and Other Engineering Entrance Exams. 

COMPREHENSIVE STUDY MATERIAL

The fact that every publisher / institute refers to our Study Material & JEE Solutions while creating their books / solutions / study material is a testimony to our quality. Our Study Material is Pattern Proof i.e., Students are well prepared for the IIT-JEE irrespective of any type of pattern.

PERSONALIZED COACHING

Individual attention is given to each and every student irrespective of one’s standing in the merit at any point of time. The batch size is kept at optimal limit, which facilitates proper Student-Faculty interaction. Our faculty is always willing to clear doubts of students even individually, if required.

TESTING & INNOVATIVE PRACTICES

Testing pattern of IIT-JEE keeps on changing while that of NEET is standardised. 

The key aspect of the test is to judge the analytical ability of the aspirants along with the understanding of fundamentals. Students having sound understanding of fundamental concepts & practising varied types of problems persistently will always outperform those students, who confine their preparation to the pattern only rather than understanding the concepts.

The tests conducted in the program help to the student’s potential in the beginning itself and decide the level of input required for his / her success. This makes the program very effective, as it becomes personalised for all students. 

Apart from Integrated School Programs, there is this unique innovation in the field of Online Test Series through myPat, another invaluable tool for getting Success in various Competitive / Scholastic Exams viz. JEE Advanced, JEE Main, BITSAT, KVPY & NTSE. This Online Test Series is focussed upon enabling Students to learn through Assessment, Analysis, Identification of Knowledge Gaps & Remedy options.

RANK POTENTIAL INDEX/ SUCCESS POTENTIAL INDEX

The capability to predict Rank Potential Index (RPI) / Success Potential Index (SPI) of a student & constantly encourage the students to emulate them is the key aspect of this program. 

THE TOTAL SUCCESS APPROACH

PrepVel Program Based

What is the need for PrepVel courses? Is school syllabus insufficient for exams like NSO, NTSE and KVPY?

Exams like NTSE, NSO, KVPY and JSTS are conducted at national level. Thousands of students compete in these exams and in order to excel in such exams, a student needs some extra preparation and a competitive edge that is missing from the school syllabus. We at Velammal cater to this ‘extra’ need of preparation that helps your child excel in such exams. Having the achievement of qualifying in a NTSE exam on a student’s resume will surely go a long way in boosting his career prospects.

What is the eligibility for PrepVel programmes?

The eligibility varies from course to course. For,

Integrated Course for Olympiads, NTSE & Class X, a student must have passed class IX or should be studying in class X.

Integrated Course for Olympiads & Class IX, a student must have passed class VIII or should be studying in class IX.

Integrated Course for Olympiads & Class VIII, a student must have passed class VII or must be studying in class VIII.

These courses prepare a student for NTSE exams and Olympiads along with sharpening his/her analytical skills and boosting his/her confidence levels.

Will the PrepVel program help in gearing up a student for future exams like JEE, NEET and KVPY etc.?

The various programs carried out under the ‘Foundations’ banner try to develop the reasoning and analytical skills of students that come handy when they go for higher level competitive exams like JEE, NEET and KVPY etc. These programs help to invoke the thinking process of a child by making him understand the concepts from the basics. As the name suggests, the ‘Foundations’ course program establishes the ‘foundations’ of a student’s academic career which help him to succeed in all his future endeavours.

How can a student participate in Olympiads?

Olympiads are organized at two levels:

Level 1 is a Science Olympiad and Mathematics Olympiad that is organized by the HBCSE in the respective schools of the participants during school hours.

Level 2 is conducted across India and abroad and is organized in more than 120 centres.
The centres of exams are the Kendriya Vidyalayas and the exams are conducted in the month of February.

The top 500 students along with the school topper award winners of level 1 qualify for level 2 exams. Students from classes 1st to 12th are eligible for this exam. Registration forms are made available at schools and a nominal participation fee is charged from each student.

Is there some benefit if a student qualifies in NSO, NTSE or KVPY exam?

These exams help a student gauge his performance on an all-India level. Qualifying in such a competitive exam definitely gives a student some brownie points on his resume. These exams boost a student’s confidence and catapult him into the league of achievers. Qualifying in such an exam is a symbol of excellence in education. So, a student must give these exams his best shot.

Is there any guarantee that a student will qualify in NTSE and other such exams after taking the PrepVel program?

Succeeding in any examination depends on the hard work and diligent efforts that a student puts into preparation. We at Velammal can only show the right path and provide the necessary guidance to a student. Velammal believes that for success in an examination, 80% credit goes to a student and 10% credit goes to the mentors and the parents individually. Velammal can only encourage a student to work hard, provide the best quality of guidance and study materials and inculcate a sense of discipline in him, the rest lies with a student, whether he wants to succeed or not.

If I enrolled my child for the program but afterwards want to back out, will the fees be refunded?

If a student asks for fee refund before the commencement of classes, then the admission fee and the first instalment of fee deposited will be refunded. However, the registration fees and admission cum scholarship test fees will not be refunded under any circumstances whatsoever.

What is the past performance of PrepVel students at exams like NTSE and Olympiads?

Velammal has been quite consistent with its performance when it comes to producing achievers. A good number of students who had taken coaching from Velammal qualified NTSE and many other such exams. The details of which have been mentioned in the ‘Our Results’ category in www.Velammal.org 

Is there any scholarship for the PrepVel program?

Yes. 

Velammal always awards scholar students in the form of scholarships. There is test like Admission Cum Scholarship Test (ACST) for admission in the foundation course program. Based on the performance in this test, a student is offered scholarships. The percentage of fee waiver may vary according to the marks secured in this test.

Will preparing for such national level exams divert a student’s attention from his school exams?

The PrepVel program does not overburden a student with unnecessary facts and figures. It actually helps in enhancing the competitive streak in a student. The course material is so developed in such a manner so that a student gets simultaneously prepared for both, school level as well as national level exams. Velammal understands the importance of school level exams and hence never lets a student get diverted from its preparation.

How many students are there in each class?

Each class has a maximum of 40 students. Student teacher ratio is of 40:1. Limited number of students in a class means greater attention for every student present. A teacher can give more time to each student and can clarify his doubts properly. Thus, the students get trained effectively.
