We do not provide printed notes of any subjects rather important judgements on particular topic is being provided as the hard copy. We make you prepare self notes during classes.
Unlike other institutes we believe in elementary education system and instead of creating a burden of notes we believe in smart study. So making common notes like books will never serve the purpose, rather we during our classes ask our students to make notes book like schools so that they have their own notes.
You should understand the pattern of exam you are preparing for. In this exam you must write answers so by making notes we serve two purposes.
- That you will have habit of writing and you need not to practice writing answers separately.
- That when you prepare notes by yourself it will be easy to remember them.
Aw we said we believe in elementary education system and in other institutions you will have 2 – 3 subjects running parallel to each other for which you have to attend classes of 4 – 6 hrs a day.
