Many students who are very good in school studies are not able to meet out the expected levels of thinking and problem solving as required for IIT-JEE preparation, especially during the considerable portion of their standard XI. In other words, they are not able to suddenly get adjusted to the higher levels of analysis, conceptual nuances and varieties of application, as it is not the learning process in school or for that matter in any tuition classes meant for school syllabus all along till standard X.
This foundation course will mould the students to think well and make them apply the concepts much better through problem solving. Hence, it will form a relatively smooth transition in standard XI for such students to get adjusted to the levels of thinking required for IIT-JEE preparation.
XI standard made easy and hence more time for IIT-JEE preparation
There is a considerable leap in the difficulty level of the XI standard CBSE syllabus, compared to that of standard X. Hence, many students though might have performed very well till standard X, spend more time in coping with the school syllabus itself during standard XI. But, XI standard syllabus will be very familiar for the students of foundation course, and hence it becomes easier for them to handle the school exams in standard XI.
This gives a distinct advantage for the students of foundation course, as they will be in a better position to balance the school work and IIT-JEE preparation during standard XI. With proper efforts during standards IX and X, work load and pressure in standard XI can be eased out considerably, which is extremely important as more time will be available for IIT-JEE preparation.
Perfect launchpad for IIT-JEE preparation
Since foundation course students will be familiar with concepts and preliminary level of problem solving in XI and XII standard CBSE syllabus, it will be the perfect launch-pad for IIT-JEE preparation, since IIT-JEE is based on the XI and XII CBSE syllabus itself. They will have a good head-start in all the topics and hence will be more comfortable in assimilating advanced concepts and will be quick to adapt to higher levels of problem solving.
Infact, no other choice because of peer pressure
There are thousands of students across India doing IIT-JEE foundation course of one kind or another. In Chennai also many bright students from various schools undergo foundation course. Since their preparation level will be much better than that of others when they enter standard XI, they will have considerable competitive edge in their preparation towards competitive exams like IIT-JEE. Hence, even from this point of view, one is left with no other option than to stay competitive by undergoing the foundation course.
Extremely Helpful for School Exams as well
Last but not the least, foundation course will be extremely helpful for the students to perform well in school exams. With the introduction of Higher Order Thinking Skills (HOTS) and increase in the competition, even talented students need some special support to excel and attain perfect scores in school exams. The concepts and their applications covered in the topics related to school syllabus will make the students be well equipped for facing any conceptual question in the school exam.
Foundation Course students will have study materials and it is designed to help them in understanding their syllabus more comprehensively and with better clarity. Regular tests based on the school syllabus will also be conducted. There won’t be any necessity for additional school tuition as well if one opts for that.
To be at the top arena of ranking in the national level
With the knowledge and analytical skills developed through the foundation course, a talented student who has worked systematically for all the three subjects, will be placed at the top arena of ranking among peers in the national level.
