1. Joining Coaching Classes:
(a) Classes provide a special advantage in that students will be able to assimilate the concepts / principles / procedures, etc. much quickly than by way of self–study. Attending Classes also helps the students to improve their insights, to improve confidence levels, and to learn the new procedures procedurally and systematically. So, it is advisable to attend classes for all the subjects at IPCC, since they are relatively new for a student who is fresh out of school.
(b) Gurukripa’s IPCC Classes are usually conducted in two sessions a year, generally after the CPT Exam results are announced.
· Gurukripa’s Classes for IPCC commence immediately after the CPT Exam Results from August and February every year. Registration for the August / February sessions commence from July / January 3rd week respectively.
· Both Morning and Evening Batches are available to students. Seats are allotted on a “first–come–first–served basis” only. Students are advised to register early in order to obtain the batch of their preference / choice.
· For details on Classes and Registration Visit: www.shrigurukripa.com.
· Joining coaching classes in Nov / May for the next May / Nov exams will lead to less revision time. Hence, it is advisable to be “early birds” for classes.
2. Utilising Classes effectively:
(a) When the student attends classes for various subjects in IPCC, he would get a basic idea of the syllabus, topics and concepts in various subjects. During this period, most of the time may be spent in attending classes. Hence, it is suggested that the student revise and understand the topics dealt with in the classes, in the same pace as that of the Faculty Member.
(b) This is a crucial stage where the student has to carefully balance two priorities – (i) Classes, and (ii) Own preparation. Each one is as important as the other.
(c) Every Class / Session should be backed up by the students’ own – (i) pre–class preparation, and (ii) post–class revision.
(d) Pre–Class Preparation is intended to orient the student to the various topics / keywords / issues. Generally, the Teacher would give an indication of the topics / issues, to be dealt with in the next class. The student is advised to browse through that topic / issue, without any obligation to “understand” that issue. The initial reading is intended only as a backdrop orientation, to gain a better hold of the issue / topic, when it is being discussed in the classroom.
(e) Post–Class Revision will help the student to maintain pace with the Teacher, in the various topics. Doubts / Questions which arise when studying the same issue again, can be cleared from the Teacher in the next class.
(f) While attending classes, the student should aim to gain an overall idea of –
· syllabus in each subject,
· topics of study in each subject,
· nature of application oriented areas / problems in each topic,
· methods applied to solve application oriented problems, and
· pattern of previous exam questions.
· Pre–class preparation will help the student assimilate the discussion / lecture, in a much better fashion. If we could obtain preliminary information about songs, storyline, actors, etc. before we watch a 3–hour movie, should we not be prepared in advance for a CA Class?
· Attendance at classes should be purposive and not a mere physical presence. The student should –
(a) be in time for the classes,
(b) actively participate in the classroom discussion,
(c) ask doubts / queries to the Teacher, and get the issue clarified / sorted,
(d) answer questions posed by the Teacher,
(e) understand that classroom is a “group” environment, and not disturb other students,
(f) concentrate on the subject / concept, and not on unrelated issues,
(g) utilize every minute spent in the classroom, in the most effective fashion.
· Joining Coaching Classes and attending them is a “conscious decision”, and not an “accident”. To the extent possible, do not miss any class. If due to reasons beyond one’s control (illness, etc.) if you miss any class, then get those points / issues clarified from the Teacher in the next class. Remember, the Teacher is interested in your career, in the same manner as you are.
· Do not be selective in attending classes, e.g. certain topics already studied at Plus Two Level, etc. For that topic, the Teacher can provide guidance on the level of knowledge required for IPCC Exams. There is always something new to be learnt in every class.
· Classroom is a holy place, where knowledge is transmitted and shared, and where careers are shaped. Maintain the decorum of the classroom, and behave in a responsible manner.
· Only Parents and Teachers will be interested in the students’ career, without any expectation of return benefit. The Teachers’ words should be respected, and not ignored as “routine advise”. Absolute Faith in the Teachers’ words / guidance / advise, will reward the student positively in the exams.
