Do I need to join a coaching center?
To crack competitive entrance exams, one doesn't necessarily need to join coaching classes. At the end of the day, coaching centers act as facilitators. Coaching centers help in your preparation by:
- Providing the right kind of study materials,
- Clearing your basic concepts,
- Teaching you tricks and shortcuts to solve problems,
- Providing practice sets, and
- Conducting mock tests.
If you have access to all of these and you have a well-defined study plan, you can crack these exams through self-study and get into your dream course.
How can Embibe help me in my preparation if I haven't joined any coaching center?
Embibe provides all of these resources and more for free. If you haven't joined any coaching class, Embibe can help you in the following manner:
The Study platform on Embibe provides all the required resources for competitive entrance exams:
1. Notes & Videos: Embibe provides study materials - explanations, video lectures, Cheat Sheets, etc. for around 15,000 concepts that
- Cover the entire syllabus of all the competitive entrance exams
- Explain every concept and topics in a simplified manner
Also, with Embibe's Knowledge Tree, you can see how the various concepts are inter-related and which which concepts should be studied after a particular concept . This makes learning easier.
2. Practice Sessions: Practicing every time you finish a chapter is very important in your preparation. Embibe provides:
- Unlimited practice questions for all competitive entrance exams
- Important and previous year questions (including questions rankers got wrong) covering every topic and subtopic
- Hint for every question
- Option to "Bookmark" a question to revise later
- Timer to keep track of and control the amount of time you are spending on each question
- Detailed solution
3. Tests: Taking tests and assessing your performance in the same is a must when you are preparing for competitive entrance exams. Embibe provides the following types of tests which are of the same level as the actual exam:
- Chapterwise tests,
- Part tests,
- Live tests,
- 11th Revision tests,
- Previous Year tests,
- Mini tests, and

Also, with Embibe's Advanced Test Analysis unlocked (with Embiums that you earn while practicing on Embibe), you will get to know your conceptual weaknesses as well as the gaps in your behavioral and exam taking strategy.
4. Ask: You can clear your academic doubts on Embibe. This is something that even most of the coaching classes do not provide since there are hundreds of students in every batch and it is humanly impossible for the teacher to pay attention to every single student.
Is that it? What else? What is unique about Embibe?
There is more...
Apart from providing these basic features for free, Embibe also has two products for engineering and medical aspirants, namely, JUMP and RANKUP.
These are products of deep studies by data analytics at Embibe. These two products provide personalized guidance which even the best coaching classes cannot provide. Not only does it look after the academic gaps in a student's preparation, but also the behavioral aspects of a successful test taking process.
Let us see how each of these products work.
JUMP - A set of score improvement packs consisting of important questions selected not only from your mistakes but also from Ranker's mistakes
The top five factors for low scores among students are:
- Careless mistakes
- Lack of prioritization
- Time management
- Unable to attempt after knowing the topic
JUMP is a product developed specifically to address all the issues students face in their exams.
In traditional coaching centers run by humans, it is not possible to keep track of these factors affecting a student's performance. But Embibe keeps track of every movement a student makes on the website and based on these collected data, it provides personalized assistance to help students face these challenges.
JUMP, with its data analytics, prepares the students to face these challenges. It also offers features like:
- Advanced Test Analysis to improve time management and test taking strategy,
- First Look Accuracy,
- Question wise feedback and analysis, and
- Compare with rankers.
Embibe has developed three different packs for Jump keeping in mind the different levels of students:
- Fix Knowledge
- Fix Strategy
- Fix Both
RANKUP - A product that provides personal mentoring and helps students overcome the challenges they face in scoring high by telling how to improve
RANKUP is India’s first-ever, personalized score improvement guarantee. You can improve your score by 60% in just 10 tests if you use RANKUP.
While JUMP gives you a peek into your academic, behavioral and test taking strategies and tells you what is causing the loss of marks, RANKUP tells you how to improve yourself. RANKUP gives you personal mentoring – personalized feedback and suggestions on how to face and overcome the challenges because of which you are losing marks.
This isn't something that offline coaching centers can provide because of the low teacher-student ratio and time constraints. Also, offline coaching centers do not have the resources and technology to track a student's behavioral irregularities.
You can also track your performance and improve your behavioral strategy to take tests in RANKUP. RANKUP also rates the amount of effort you are putting in your preparation.
With all these features and products, you can easily crack the entrance exams and get into your dream college.
