We chose Neev Classes for our son to help him prepare for the KVPY and other entrance examinations because it is a small, boutique establishment with committed founders and teachers who really know their subjects and are passionate about teaching. Even their selection test is different, testing not the students’ prior knowledge, but instead their ability to grasp new concepts. A teacher takes a one-hour class on an unfamiliar topic following which the students are given a set of questions on that topic. The focus here is on mastering the concepts in Mathematics, Physics, and Chemistry and working from first principles to solve problems. The class sizes are small and the teachers create a stimulating environment. They are friendly and approachable and have a lucid teaching style. Since the KVPY test is held in November, mid-way through the school year, they had a focus group to help the students prepare for it specially. All of this helped Akash clear the KVPY written test and interview and get a rank of 253 in the SA stream (11th Grade).
