“You were born an original. Don’t die a copy.” [John Mason]

Over a time, a number of people and commercial enterprises have mushroomed into the process of “preparing candidates” for selection into various institutions and competitive exams (like NTS, IELTS, GRE, GMAT, IBA, LUMS, CSS, ISSB, etc) as coaching centers. While the exposure to such resources is a matter of importance for prospective candidates, it is a matter of concern that these are basically business-centers, and as such do more loss than gain to individuals, in terms of (mis)guidance and (mis)conceptions.

The young students, who have no other option to prepare or get information are therefore confined to the conditioning provided by these mentors, and as a result get limited on performance and potentials due to exposure / knowledge restraints and lack of broad / deep outlook due to young age – since all the institutions gauge the candidature in both qualitative and quantitative terms, and not superficial persona. Hence, the coaching becomes a blessing for few, and detrimental for most.

  1. To some extent its productive. B’cause there is no time limit to broaden your outlook. One can keep going. In school learning has to be restrained. Chosen seeds who show exception, are tested more on their passion , then tagged “gifted ” are sent for research, unleashed ” somewhere remote “. Among the ordinary ,one who wants to keep learning should keep seeing ex teachers and scholars, by and then. It works.
