Programme Philosophy & Methodology

The Indian Institutes of Technology (IITs) are international centres of excellence in imparting training in Science and Technology. Students are admitted to these institutes through an all-India competition called the JEE (Joint Entrance Examination).

The IIT JEE is renowned as the world's toughest entrance examination at the Under Graduate level. The questions appearing in this examination are conceptual and tricky. They are meant to test not only the student's understanding of the fundamental principles of science but also his/her skill to apply these principles in unforeseen situations, as these questions are always refreshingly new.

Preparing for the JEE has three equally important aspects:
(i) building a sound conceptual understanding of the subject
(ii) sufficient amount of practice and preparation
(iii) development of non-academic skills such as time management, stress management, goal-setting and analysing one's faults and weaknesses.

The faculty of the Golden Gate programme continuously guides the students on all three fronts, due to which the student benefits in the long run, irrespective of which course or institution he/she joins after class XII.

Our ex-students have proved time and again that building upon all these areas helps them do well in academics at a later stage.

The programme is conducted in the format of a group tuition. The batch size is restricted to 40 students, to facilitate easy individual interaction between professors and students.

The faculty is intentionally restricted to only 4 professors, each of whom is a master in his/her respective field. The students interact with the same 4 professors for the entire course duration of 2 years. Allowing the students to learn a subject from at most one or two excellent professors, results in continuity in the learning process for the students.

In each lecture, the students are engaged in conceptual discussions followed by application of these concepts to a huge variety of problems, starting from the basic and gradually moving over to the advanced level upto the standard of the JEE. Rather than instilling rote mugging, the students are encouraged to improve their conceptual understanding, analytical skill, examination temperament as well as nerve, which are so vital in this unique examination. The students' level of preparation is regularly examined by exposing them to continuous evaluation in the form of periodic tests and assignments.

Students' parents have easy access to faculty members, and can contact them directly to ask about their wards. Eight months after the start of the training programme a faculty-parent meeting is held, in which detailed report cards are given to the parents and they meet and discuss the student's progress with each professor individually.

Other entrance examinations

It has been our experience that the training we impart in the Golden Gate Programme is highly beneficial to students in other entrance examinations also (apart from the JEE).

BITSAT (Birla Institute of Science & Technology Admission Test) is one such examination. Birla Institute of Technology & Science is currently located in three places in India - Pilani, Goa & Hyderabad. These institutes are internationally recognised as centres of excellence imparting training in science and technology. The entry to these prestigious institutes is through a national level examination called BITSAT, held after the class XII examination. The BITSAT syllabus is quite similar to the JEE syllabus.

Students of the Golden Gate Programme have always done well at the BITSAT. The numbers of students who were admitted to BITS on the basis of BITSAT are:

(i) In 2013, 4 out of 30 students (i.e. 13 % of the batch)

(ii) In 2012, 3 out of 35 students (i.e. 8.5 % of the entire batch)

(iii) In 2011, 4 out of 25 students (i.e. 16 % of the batch)

(iv) In 2010, 9 out of 28 students (32 % of the batch)

(v) In 2009, 9 out of 30 (30 % of the batch).

New Pattern

Some changes have recently been made in the IIT-JEE structure. There will now be two stages of the JEE :
(i) the JEE (Main) (ii) the JEE (Advanced). Admission to the IITs will now be through a two-tier process. The first stage of that process will be a screening round, in which the student's merit in the JEE (Main) will be taken into account. Only students who are among the first 1.5 lakh ranks in the JEE (Main) can then appear for the JEE (Advanced), and the final merit list will consist of students who do well in the JEE (Advanced), and who appear in the top 20 percentile of their respective XII standard boards.

In view of these changes (and any other changes which may occur in the future) please note that it has always been our endeavor to enable as many students as possible to enter either IIT or BITS or any of the other national level institutes like the NITs, IISER, IISc (Bangalore) etc. Hence changes in the nature of the admission procedure of the above institutes will automatically reflect in the way we conduct the programme.

However, it must be stressed that our programme is built upon three core values: (i) emphasis on learning the fundamentals of each subject (ii)applying those fundamentals to problems. (iii)development of non-academic skills such as time management, stress management, goal-setting and analysing one's faults and weaknesses.

We believe that for a student's long-term interests, these three core values must be at the heart of any good academic programme regardless of the nature of the entrance examination. We hence do not expect to change the basic way of conducting the programme.

Students' Testimonials

Omkar Damle : current student of Golden Gate to IIT
[School: Yashodham High School, Goregaon (E)]
omkar_damle.jpg It’s now almost a year since I have been a part of the Golden Gate to IIT course-2014 and my experience has been quite fantastic! The faculty members are very much student-friendly and have a stronghold over their respective subjects. The one-to-one interaction that we share with the faculty members is also quite helpful.
According to me the unique feature of this course is that it tries to create a liking for the subject as a whole along with preparing the students to tackle competitive exams. This is of very much importance if the students want to excel in engineering fields after 12th. I would strongly recommend this course to students who really want to get into IITs, BITs etc. and experience the wonderful opportunities that these institutions offer in the field of science and technology.

Ujwal Jakhotiya : current student of Golden Gate to IIT
(School: Parle Tilak Vidyalaya English Medium)
ujwal_jakhotiya.jpg Sumant Patankar, my senior in school, advised me to join Golden Gate To IIT (GG). I am in the second year of the course and I now know that my decision was absolutely correct. Due to GG I feel really confident about all the subjects. The faculty here comprises of people who have tremendous knowledge in their fields and they have the best teaching skills. It’s a great benefit for us to get such a learning experience. The system of the class is very well organised. Tests conducted here give us the exact idea of our progress. The results tell us at what rank we are standing in the class and also how much efforts do we have to take to get into IIT. The weekly assignments, homework and the grading system help a lot to understand the subject. Not only that but they also organise a mentor for all the students and that really helps. Even the parents have an idea of how well their son or daughter is doing in the class as all the test marks are send to them by email.

Ninad Chitnis : current student of Golden Gate to IIT
(School: Shri Madhavrao Bhagwat High School, VileParle)
ninad_chitnis.jpg A very good course with excellent faculty. All the professors are very enthusiastic to teach and even solve trivial doubts patiently. The best thing is that the entire faculty knows each student personally and the student limit of 40 ensures personal attention to each student. All of the professors are always accessible by phone or email and hence we students can solve our doubts quite easily. Another good thing is the physics screencasts that are video solutions to the tougher physics problems explained in an easy way. A lot of practice is also taken for maths while chemistry is taught in a very easy way so that it does not seem difficult at all. Overall, a definitely recommendable course for those trying for admission to IIT and other prime engineering institutes. - Ninad Chitnis

Aditya Joglekar : current student of Golden Gate to IIT
[School: IES's Manik Vidya Mandir, Bandra (W)]
aditya_joglekar.jpg Golden Gate to IIT is not just a class. It’s something much more than it. It’s a temple dedicated to create people who love and understand science. At the same time it is ‘THE’ place to head to prepare yourself for JEE the toughest examination in the world. My experience at GG has indeed been amazing. The faculty is brilliant, masters in their respective fields and are simply devoted to the art of teaching. This helps us students to grasp the intricacies of each and every topic and makes sure that we apply them properly in any situation. The classroom environment is extremely conducive to the overall academic development of every student. The small size of our batch ensures that everybody gets individual guidance and this enables our professors to identity our shortcomings and rectify them. Excellent classwork materials, intensive classroom discussions, plenty of assignments, homeworks and monthly tests based on the JEE pattern make us familiar with the level of difficulty of the JEE problems and enfuse self confidence. In short if you want to crack the JEE and at the same time learn something which will stay with you for the rest of your life then there nothing better than GG!

(School: Balmohan Vidyamandir, Dadar)
soham_vaze.jpg Golden Gate to IIT is an extraordinarily great programme for preparation for the IIT JEE. The Professors conducting the programme are excellent professionals in their respective fields. The main aim of the course is not only the preparation for various entrance exams but also understanding concepts in each subjects proficiently. I had made a tough decision of coming to Vile Parle all the way from Dadar though I had many options for the coaching classes nearby but now I realize that my decision was right. The professors keep us busy and well-prepared with the weekly assignments , homework & online tests. The monthly tests conducted are of a level comparable to the real JEE exam. And also limited class strength assures personal attention to all students. The important concepts are built up quite well. I spend 1 hour from my house to class and back , yet it's worth it. The course is quite rigorous and I assure you will be adequately prepared for the JEE if you attend this course & fulfill all its requirements.
So to my fellow JEE aspirants do not miss the golden opportunity to join the Golden Gate programme.

siddhesh_sakhalkar.jpg The two years that I spent at Golden Gate to IIT were indeed an excellent experience. Now, having completed the course, when I look back, I realize how aptly and thoughtfully the course has been designed, particularly the order in which the topics are covered. The faculty is extremely able, dedicated and more importantly very much accessible at any time of the day. The focus here is not just on clearing JEE but rather on getting our concepts right, for, the nature of the examination is such that the former without the latter is an impossibility. The weekly home works, assignments and monthly tests ensured regular practice. Also the six hour tests and prelims at the end were particularly useful in nailing the objective pattern of JEE . I can say, without doubt, that without this Golden contribution getting into IIT would still be a dream to chase.
Cheers

ajay_pisat.jpg The course is really unique. The small size of the batch provides a very good learning experience, and the personal relation with the professors is one of those things which is so rare to get nowadays. The professors are, each of them, masters in their subject, with lots of experience, and, therefore, can teach in a manner which is the best for the students. I feel that this course not only provides quality education, but also develops in us many other good qualities. I would like to thank all the faculty of golden gate for providing me with this success.

suyash_patkar.jpg My success in IITJEE and other entrance exams is because of the two year Golden Gate to IIT classroom programme. Lectures were interactive in nature. More emphasis was given to the clearing the concepts. Adequate amount of assignments and homeworks were useful for practising problems. Part tests and six hour tests were extremly useful. I found the difficulty level of these tests as per the JEE question paper. I won’t be surprised if this will become one of the best coaching class for JEE in future.

priyans_murarka.jpg My overall experience at Golden Gate was awesome. It is not just about getting into IIT, it is about clearing your concepts and loving the subject. The same was experienced by me and because of it I started to develop liking in all three subjects. Whatever I gained from here shall always be with me.

aniket_mane.jpg About Golden Gate to IIT ( popularly known as GG) - I have mainly four reasons to thank GG. (which means there are many more too). Karmarkar sir developed my interest in physics, I required it badly. Sir was ready to spend as much time as required to solve my doubts. My physics improved greatly due to him. Antarkar sir inspired us to solve maths problems in simple ways. I was always confident about maths. Sir taught me how to be cautious. His problems/paper sets asked us to think twice and twice as fast b4 solving the sum. Ghosh madam developed my confidence in chem. Due to her i came to know that my chem is better than what I think it is. Also the lectures were interesting enough to make me like the subject I previously hated. Also since the batch is of 35 students, it is possible for the teachers to pay attention to our difficulties and doubts. I thank GG for an unforgetable learning experience.

pushkar_limaye.jpg Hi JEE Aspirants! Today as an IITian in one of the world's premier educational institutions,IIT Bombay, I would like to dedicate my success in IIT-JEE and all other engineering entrance examinations to 'GOLDEN GATE TO IIT' classroom programme. The quality of education, knowledge and the level of interaction between faculty and students is at par with the best coaching institutes. The faculty here comprises of people who have tremendous knowledge in their respective fields and thus induce confidence and enthusiasm to learn more in all students. And the feature that sets this programme apart from all such other kind of programmes is the level of the tests conducted here. I have found it having an extremely high resemblance with the IIT-JEE examination level and toughness. So friends, I recommend you to walk the success and excellence through the 'GOLDEN GATE'. Wishing you success in your future endeavours
Yours truly,

The Golden Gate Programme has some important features such as experienced faculty members, limited number of students in a batch and classroom teaching of 2.5 hours six days a week. This provided me with ample opportunities to interact with the faculty members and this enabled me to share a very good rapport with the professors. The personal attention that I received helped me in clarifying concepts and developing my interest in the subjects. This has not only helped me in my preparation for the JEE but also prepared a foundation for my further studies.

avanika_agarwal.jpg What struck me first at GOLDEN GATE was the right kind of motivation and guidance I received. Through my teachers I got to experience brand IIT. I Truly got the feel of IIT. Each subject is taught so genuinely, with so much attention to detail, that you learn every topic and every question for the rest of your life. You feel that you are in safe hands. This is indeed the Golden Gate of IIT.
