FAQS

Our team consists of highly qualified and competent teachers comprising IIT/NIT graduates, doctorates, and some of the most renowned professors in their respective fields. They have either qualified the JEE/AIPMT themselves or been closely associated with the JEE/Medical Entrance exams.

The combination of a strong foundation in the subjects and decades of experience in teaching for these rigorous competitions makes our faculty one of the best in the country.
Ascentria focuses on contact classroom teaching, as that has proven to be the most effective method of communication between teacher and student. This approach not only helps retain the student’s attention, but also allows the dedicated teachers to monitor the students’ receptiveness and retention. Our faculty are accessible at all times to clarify students’ doubts, and provide motivation and feedback. We keep our student numbers in each cohort small so that every student can derive the greatest benefit from the program.
SAT SUBJECT TESTS
Students are made to sit a series of full length practice papers under test conditions, which are graded electronically. The results highlight the student’s areas of weakness and enable student and teacher to work together to improve the scores. Our aim is that students should attain full scores in the very first attempt.
GRADE 11-12 AND FOUNDATION COURSES
A continuous assessment process is adopted throughout the course. Students are tested weekly, and after each topic and are ranked not only against their classroom peers, but also on a National level against students studying in India. Students will be tested on exactly the same exam papers as top students enrolled with PACE in India, and ranked both topic-wise and cumulatively during the course.
TOPIC-WISE ASSESSMENT
PACE conducts tests after the completion of each topic to ensure that every student is has a strong understanding of the material he/she has learnt. If there are any indications that a student is weak in any particular topic, he/she can immediately take remedial doubt-solving sessions with the teachers.
CUMULATIVE ASSESSMENT THROUGH MAJOR TESTS
Major tests at PACE are a special feature that take place several times during the entrance preparation courses. These tests generally follow the pattern of expected JEE/NEETenable the student to diagnose his/her level of understanding of the topics. After these tests, students receive their test feedback through detailed Performance Reports. Parents and students will be provided with a unique student login ID, which will enable them to view the student’s progress and attendance at all times during the tenure of the program.

In addition to the books, study material, classroom lectures and individual doubt solving sessions, we also provide all students access to PACE’s excellent edu-portal PANACEA. Students can additionally benefit from supplementary material, lecture videos by some of the finest professors in each topic, past papers, toppers notes, and much more.
While the center management team and counselors are constantly available to the students, a unique classroom feedback mechanism has also been initiated and is meticulously followed in order to guarantee sustained feedback that can serve as the basis for development.
Because we believe in providing the best teachers and systems to our students, students are asked to give their feedback on systems and teachers on a monthly basis. Based on this feedback, we determine the best possible way for students to achieve success.
This systematic feedback mechanism has evolved in PACE in the last 16 years and has helped address any problem faced by students at various levels of exam preparation.
