In pursuit of academic excellence and to provide holistic education to the students we at AIMETC offer remedial classes on regular basis to the students who are slow learners and academically weak. The objective of remedial teaching is to give additional help to students who, for one reason or another, have fallen behind the rest of the class in any of the subjects.
Slow learners students are those students who could not keep pace with classroom teaching and needs extra attention. Their motivation level is also low and finds it difficult to adjust to the teaching-learning process. In this, we provide special attention and learning support, to these students to increase their learning ability, knowledge skill, and academic standards. Slow learners are identified based on their performance in the qualifying examination and internal examinations. These students are given special attention to help upgrade their skills and boost up their confidence to bring them to par with their peers. The remedial classes are conducted during the working days after the regular teaching hours are completed. These classes are completed before the examinations to help the students score well.
Measure taken under remedial classes for improving academic performance:
- Extra classes are taken for the slow learners.
- Individual subject teacher personally counsels and guides the students for difficult subjects.
- For a better understanding of the subject bilingual explanations is imparted to the slow learners during and after the class hours.
- Standard course materials/lecture notes/lists of important questions are provided to the students for exam preparation.
The institute aims at the holistic development of students and realizes the significance of effective communication skills in getting lucrative jobs or becoming a successful entrepreneur.
