The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) organizes the Joint Entrance Examination every year for students who seek admission to institutes such as National Institutes of Technology (NITs), Indian Institutes of Information Technology (IIITs), Centrally Funded Technical Institutions (CFTIs), technology institutes and engineering colleges run by state governments, and private colleges that accept JEE. The exam is split into two parts: JEE-Main and JEE-Advanced with the latter only open to the students who score the top 2,24,000 ranks in Paper 1 category of JEE Main. This information, though overwhelming for some, is crucial to understanding the tough competition it poses to aspiring engineering students. An exam abound in competition, especially of this magnitude, calls for intense, holistic preparation. The Narayana Group understands just how crucial comprehensive preparation is in cracking JEE exams, which is why it runs several programmes aimed at helping students be totally ready for their future in leading engineering and technology institutes across the country.
The Narayana Group, one of the largest educational conglomerates in the continent, offers educational excellence based on its rich experience. In about 40 years of its existence, the Group has enriched countless students' lives with matchless education in myriad domains. Currently present in 13 states in India, the Group teaches more than 360,000 students and employs 35,000 experienced teaching and non-teaching faculty across its 560+ centres. Its broad network of institutes comprises numerous schools, junior colleges, coaching centres, medical, engineering and management institutions, and IAS training academies spread throughout India. Over the years, the Narayana Group has successfully demonstrated its mettle as the benchmark in the realm of education and continues to deliver exceptional results in domestic and international competitive examinations.
Based on the same overarching philosophy, the Narayana Group's IIT exam training schools in Chennai also provide meticulous training to aspiring engineering students to help them succeed in myriad gateway exams. One of the several unique programmes aimed at helping students prepare for IIT exams is the E-Techno programme wherein schools use a unique strategy for teaching. The programme combines not only State, CBSE, and ICSE syllabi for the academics but also IB and IGCSE syllabi which strengthens students' proficiency in Mathematics, Biology, Physics, and Chemistry and also helps them become adept at solving complex numerical and logical problems.
The Narayana Group's extraordinary E-Techno schools double up as the leading IIT coaching schools in Chennai and are pivotal to delivering unmatched training for highly competitive exams such as JEE Main and JEE Advanced. The E-Techno schools tap into a novel synergy that focusses on not only laying the foundation for students' careers but also on the development and further evolution of their life skills. The E-Techno programme, aimed at standard VI to X students, constantly endeavours to shape the global leader of the future. Besides necessary educational training, the schools also instil inventive thinking and communication skills that arms them with the ability to confidently work towards their respective futures.
This educational model, focussed on getting ready for IIT, uses a meticulously planned strategy to help students achieve the best results.
Stage 1: At this stage, the faculty prepares micro level plans for each topic by identifying the basics and concepts that need to be mastered and relevant subtopics.
Stage 2: Based on the plan prepared at Stage 1, identified programme of study is taught to students by the means of prescribed textbooks, additional illustrations, and several examples.
Stage 3: Here students are able to apply the knowledge acquired in the previous stages for solving problems on each concept. They are also given questions from previous years' competitive exams and various international reference books. This stage plays a crucial as it allows students to master the concepts they are tested on.
Stage 4: At this stage, students analyse their retention of the lessons and acquired knowledge and also their ability to solve cumulative assignments based on multiple concepts.
Other features of the unique educational model followed at our schools include the 1+1 system. Under the purview of this approach, each teaching class is followed by a work out class. Furthermore, students in each class are divided into six sub groups, ascending from E1 to E6, based on their respective performance in a series of tests on basic concepts that are conducted during the early phase of the academic year. Each of these sub groups is then headed by an associate faculty who works closely with the group to first identify their individual problem areas and then to improve their performance positions by catering to their individual academic needs. Furthermore, students are also counselled by the associate faculty along with the Principal, Vice Principal, and the primary faculty while comparing test scores for each subject, thus ensuring that no stone is left unturned in the endeavour to help them improve in the academic arena.
This philosophy of checking in with students at every juncture helps successfully execute the LUMRA (Learning, Understanding, Memorizing, Retention, and Application) cycle of learning within the same class. This decentralized mode of training and counselling helps the Group's students eliminate stress from the learning process.
The Four Stage Plan, the 1+1 system, and the Decentralized Teacher Training and Counselling Method are only some of the innovative philosophies that give Narayana's schools for IIT JEE Coaching (Chennai) an edge. Moved by the special emphasis placed on the mutually dependent triad of subject knowledge, conceptual skills, and personal competencies, the Narayana Group constantly works on and brings in ingenious trends in the educational arena.
Besides that, our schools the following advantages that allows our students to gain a competitive edge over their peers from the purportedly best IIT coaching centres in Chennai:
- e-diary facility for parents

- CDF programme to strengthen basics
- LEAP Programmes with English lab activities to improve communication skills
- Practical experience in well-furnished Physics, Chemistry, and Biology laboratories
- Common schedules, common teaching, common examinations, and common analysis to level the field

The Narayana Group believes different mediums and modern technologies are vital for education -- a belief that has allowed it to leading the overhaul of conventional teaching methods in India. The Group's schools come equipped with various audio-visual tools that not only help faculty teach better but also improves students' interpretation of various concepts.
Another vital component of the edutainment philosophy is the Narayana Group's VCAN programme (Video conferencing at Narayana) that facilitates communication and enables collaborative programmes like quizzes, just-a-minute (JAM) sessions, etc.
Narayana schools also engage students in myriad activities such as discussions, mind-mapping techniques, quizzes on applying thought, data sufficiency, mental ability, logical reasoning, and folding and unfolding of concepts to help broaden students' perspectives.
The Narayana Group is cognizant of that fact that the process of learning and education can take a toll on students. And this is students are not only coached in relaxation techniques but also receive yoga and meditation training three hours every week to help them cope with their academic routines.
