SURAT: To further the motto of expanding its network to various parts of the country to help thousands of students realise their dreams of becoming doctors and IITians, Aakash Educational Services Limited (AESL), the national leader in test preparation services, today reached the milestone of a double century by inaugurating its Third Centre in the Diamond and Textile Centre of Gujarat, the City of Surat. With this AESL has achieved yet another feat that is unparalleled in the test preparation sector in the country.

Located in Opera Business Hub on Lajamni Chowk in Mota Varachha, the new centre is the third in the city after the first one was launched in Majura Gate in 2013 and the second in Adajan in 2015. The New Centre will cater to students preparing and aspiring for Medical Entrance Examinations as well as offer Foundation-level courses that help them prepare for various types of competitive examinations e.g. Olympiads etc. apart from strengthening their basics. Other cities in Gujarat where Aakash Institute is located are Ahmedabad, Gandhinagar, Vadodara and Vapi.

The new Centre was inaugurated by Dr. H. R. Rao, Regional Director, Aakash Educational Services Limited (AESL). Also present on the occasion were senior company officials, faculty and dignitaries from the city.

Speaking at the inauguration, Dr. Rao said: “We are delighted that AESL has achieved this milestone from the city of Surat. Seeing the potential and demand from here, we decided to set up our third centre in the city. The new centre will be a big boon for local students aspiring to becoming doctors and IITians. Today, Aakash is widely known for providing quality education throughout the country through its pan-India network of Centres. The quality of its educational content and the effectiveness of its teaching methodologies, as evidenced by the number of selections of its students, have made Aakash one of the top choices for students intending to qualify for undergraduate medical and engineering courses.”

Students who wish to take admission in Aakash can either take Direct Admission (DA), the Admission cum Scholarship Test (ACST) or register for ANTHE (Aakash National Talent Hunt Exam). ANTHE, conducted recently for students in Class 8th to 12th, offered them a chance to win a scholarship as well. Next week, AESL is launching NEST – the Aakash National Eligibility & Scholarship Test – which is a national level scholarship exam that gives students an opportunity to compete nationally and win Scholarship up to 80% on Tuition Fee. 

Added Dr. Rao: “Gujarat is a key state for us and we are very pleased to expand our footprint in the city as well as in the state. The addition of this branch to our national network reflects our commitment to offering standardized quality teaching, modern infrastructure and an environment conducive for learning to students across India, using technology-enabled systems.”

The programs offered at Aakash prepare students extensively and exhaustively for various examinations. Further, the teaching methodology adopted focuses on conceptual and application-based learning that distinguishes it as a brand. The expert faculty at Aakash follow modern and interactive teaching methods that help students to achieve their goals. The proven success record of Aakash can be, thus, attributed to its unique education delivery system which emphasizes on focused and result-oriented teaching methodology.
