Course is structured for 24 weeks. Twenty weeks of course , Two weeks for GATE tests and another two weeks for reviews.
There's a two hour on-site class at our locations per week. In addition to that students can avail two more hours of instructor's help remotely. They can use this for home work and/or any questions they might have. There will be a review every month shared to the parent/student . There will be mid-term test and final GATE test for students to graduate.
