Bank Exam Preparations At Home Is Better Than Coaching

Nowadays most of the students who want to pursue a career in the banking sector are going for coaching classes but only a few of them are getting the good results in the bank exams. This is because the coaching centers never teach you any shortcut techniques.

The reason, why they don’t teach shortcut techniques because it never gives you accurate answers and if you prepare yourself then you will develop shortcut methods yourself while solving the questions.

As the number of students is more than 150 in a single classroom, the time allotted for one class is maximum 90 minutes, so a teacher will not be able to concentrate on every student.

Communication is the most important part in education because without this the teacher will never know a student has learned anything or not.


One reason why most of the students opt for self-study is the flexibility of study hours. Some students love to study at night rather than studying at day time. Some are fast learners some are slow learners. At coaching centers, you have to study according to their pace but at home, you can study at your own pace.
