IMS's CSAT Correspondence and Test Series programs are only for the Prelims Paper II. These programs are specially designed for students who cannot attend classes at an IMS centre. For these programs to be effective, one of the requirements for the students is that they be extremely self-disciplined and self-motivated.
IMS offers the most comprehensive study material for test preparation - the Basic Reference Material (BRM). The BRM pack comprises booklets with hundreds of questions for concept learning and practice. With the BRM pack, test takers also get access to online practice tests that provide adequate practice for effective preparation.
IMS believes in personalised attention for the students, both in class and outside. Our classroom programs are based on a common philosophy that a certain basic level of learning must be accomplished by the students themselves with the help of the BRM. The BRM exhaustively deals with the topics tested in the various entrance tests. Students need to go through the relevant topics in the BRM BEFORE attending any class.
Classroom programs at IMS are designed to revise basics, teach important concepts, illustrate the application of the concepts and assess the learning imparted in the class through various solved and unsolved examples. Based on IMS's belief in personalised learning, the time spent on each of these elements is different for different variants to enable better grasping of concepts by the students.
After the class:
Students are expected to revise the concepts taught in class with the help of the BRM and the student copy provided in class. Students should complete all BRM exercises corresponding to the topics taught in a class as well as the home assignment problems in the students’ copy. IMS faculty will attend to all queries related to the BRM exercises or home assignments during the Revisor/Helpline sessions conducted at the centres.
Taking competitive tests means that students must always be able to assess their individual performance vis-à-vis their peers. The most important stage of preparation is to take simulated tests, and IMS's simulated tests accurately represent the various entrance exams in every way. The tests, coupled with detailed performance evaluation reports and analyses, IMS ensures that through regular practice, every student is thoroughly prepared for the final test.
Today, information overload is one of the major challenges faced by the student community. While there is a plethora of information available online or otherwise entrance tests, test preparation strategies, eligibility criteria, etc, it has become increasingly difficult for students to find the “right information”. This is where IMS, as an expert with nearly four decades of specialised experience, can help the students find their future career path.
IMS provides personalised counselling to every student with regard to:
Creating an effective study plan for entrance tests
