Ques. Did you take coaching classes? If yes, how they did help in your story?

Ans. Yes. Coaching classes are important to have a brief overview of exam pattern, career guidance (i.e., which college you should select), subject guidance by expert faculty and to know some shortcut formulae. Also, the mock test of coaching classes is very important to know where you need to improve.
