The exam wise details are as given below :
CTET Exam Details
This exam is held twice a year, generally in December and June. This is a tough examination and the success rate generally does not exceed even 10% of the total number of aspirants. More than 10 lakh aspirants appear for this test every time. Very often, the success rate has gone down to as low as 5%. Therefore, one has to prepare very meticulously for this test.
Athena Coaching Academy offers coaching programs of 3 month duration for CTET. The course fee is Rs.7,500/- which is to be paid fully in advance. Classes are held 5 days a week from Monday. Every day, three periods would be held covering fully, by rotation, all the segments of the syllabus for each of the different subject groups.
For CTET (I) 2019, the first batch would commence on Sankranti, 15th January, 2019. The classes would be held from 10 am to 1 pm, subject to minor adjustments to suit the convenience of the aspirants concerned.
Kendriya Vidyalaya Exam
This exam is held once a year, generally in November – December. The exam pattern is a combination of PGT in a particular subject, in which the vacancy exists, and CTET.
This is also a tough exam because, unlike CTET which is only an eligibility exam, the KVS exam provides straight recruitment as a teacher to the Kendriya Vidyalaya Sangathan, and the successful employees straightaway become employees of the central government.
Athena Coaching Academy provides a three month coaching program starting in the third week of August for the KVS Exam. The course fee for the same is Rs.15,000/- which includes coaching in the subject for which the vacancy has been advertised.
UP PGT Exam
The Uttar Pradesh PGT exam has not been held regularly in the past few years and there have been several postponements. It is a very crucial exam because success in this exam guarantees employment as a teacher for intermediate classes (XI & XII) in government junior colleges throughout the state.
Athena Coaching Academy provides three month coaching program in several subjects, especially social sciences, for this exam. Classes are held 5 days a week. The course fees is Rs.15,000/-. However, coaching classes are organized only after some information from the state government departments/agencies concerned comes into the public domain regarding the likely date of the examination, well before the actual notification is issued by the appropriate authority announcing the exact dates of the exam.
UP TGT Exam
The position of the Uttar Pradesh government on holding the TGT exam has been rather ambivalent in the last few years. It has held exams of a similar nature in 2017 itself but with a different nomenclature, the results of which have been challenged in the courts and the matter is sub judice.
Athena Coaching Academy would hold exams for TGT in the same subjects for which it plans to hold exams for PGT. The fees for coaching for TGT alone for a duration of three months would be Rs. 10,000/-. The fees for combined coaching for PGT & TGT for a period of three months would be Rs.21,000/-, with classes being held 5 days a week.
UP TET Exam
Athena Coaching Academy provides coaching programs of three months duration in Hindi medium for UPTET. The fees for the program is Rs.6,000/-. Classes are held 5 days a week.
Those aspirants who also intend to register for coaching for CTET and pay the stipulated fees of Rs.7,500/- for the same, do not have to pay any fees in parallel for the UPTET coaching program and will be given additional coaching for UPTET without any extra fees being charged.
The coaching for UPTET will cater to both the streams, i.e., Maths/Science as well as Social Studies as per the respective syllabus.
Coaching For M.Ed., B.Ed., BTC etc
Athena Coaching Academy provides syllabus based individually customized coaching for students enrolled in M.Ed., B.Ed. and BTC (now known as Diploma in Elementary Education) who seek help to do well in their respective class room studies. However, all such coaching would be considered on merits depending on the competency and commitment levels of the students concerned.
