How We Train

Most educational institutes only focus on academics without holistic approach of the concepts, competitive exams along with mental health aspect of the students. Our objective is to ensure you get enough training required for board exam and for NDA. For this, apart from regular school classes, we also provide extra coaching; be it to clear NDA or the soft skills necessary to succeed in the interviews. Specialised guidance will be provided to achieve 100% placement. Students will be subjected to intense training to top the exams and the necessary skills for SSB interview.


Our Admission Process

Our minimum eligibility is 75% in the board exams. Once the mark list arrives, we will look into your details and schedule a medical check-up. Those who clear the medical round, will be called in for a psychological test followed by the final interview. Once the basic criteria is met, the merit list will be made on the basis of the following marks:­

Psychology Test – 200 Marks

 Interview – 300 Marks
