Ascentria roots back to IIT-ian’s PACE, headquartered in Mumbai, which is one of the premier training institutes of India , #1 in Maharashtra and among the top 5 in the Indian metros. Established in 1999, PACE has maintained a sterling record in placements of its students in the prestigious IITs and medical colleges around the country.

PACE introduced preparation for medical entrance examinations in 2011-12, with a success rate of 70% in the AIPMT during its very first year. Its success rate rose to 91% in the 2013 NEET and to 94% in the 2014 AIPMT.

Through innovative teaching techniques and methodologies, PACE annually produces top-ranked students in the most competitive examinations such as JEE, NEET, AIIMS and National and International Olympiads.These achievements have resulted in several IIT faculty, and Deans and Directors of IIT Mumbai, entrusting PACE with the responsibility of training their wards for JEE preparation.

Since 2009, PACE has been operating PACE Junior Science Colleges (Grades 11 and 12) offering their synchronized programme wherein students cover not only Grade 11 and 12 requirements, but also complete in-depth training for competitive exams. The results from this initiave have been outstanding. PACE now operates 8 such colleges in India.

PACE has recently opened Vagad PACE Global School – a residential CBSE school at Virar developed on a 27 acrecampus. It is a holistic ecosystem ensuring that students can avail proper mentoring and focus on their goal undisturbed by any distractions.

Over 25 schools in India have appointed PACE to operate the Integrated Program on their premises. Some of these include DPS, Mathura Road and DPS RK Puram in Delhi, and KC College and RN Podar School in Mumbai.

PACE has a track record of student placement in over 100 of the world’s most prestigious universities and colleges. These include US Ivy League institutes such as Cornell, Stanford and MIT, among others, as well as premier universities in the UK such as Cambridge University.

PACE has always opted for a result-oriented approach, rather than commercial expansion. By placing the wellbeing of its students at its core, PACE has achieved the highest success ratio and held a consistent monopoly in IIT and Medical results year after year.
