Ans:The exams conducted for CA course are very difficult and passing percentage is very low.

Ans: It is normally very difficult to prepare on your own due to many reasons. The most common reason is that if you do not understand a concept/topic/subject, you will get stuck and may feel demotivated. Without Personal coaching and constant guidance, passing the examination will be very difficult. a student you need to be told about where you stand exactly in your preparation and be guided on how to prepare for the exams with constant feedback.

Ans:Yes this is true, but that is a small fraction of the total number of students giving the exams every year.

Ans:Free study material is not structured in a way that you need to study for a difficult exam like CA. Also, a lot of the material is not updated with the changes as required by the exam, and hence can misguide you. So, we recommend you to be very careful while referring to such material.

Ans:In Satellite Coaching students still have to travel to a center to attend the class at a fixed date and time. So it’s very inflexible and doesn’t give you opportunity to attend missed classes or repeat lectures. Thus Satellite Coaching is very inconvenient for working and even non-working students who are pursuing other studies alongside.

Besides, those students (boys or girls) who can’t travel to other cities for coaching or homemakers (housewife/ves) who have to look after their families, Satellite Coaching is an impractical option.

In addition, the coaching institute passes on all the costs of expensive real estate, utility bills and maintenance charges etc. to you. Besides, they also advertise heavily, cost of which is passed on to students. Hence overall fees of such coaching institutes remains high.

And above all, Satellite learning is mostly one-way teaching with very little scope of personal attention from the faculties and provides limited opportunity to interact with faculties whose sole priority is to complete the portion within the stipulated time. This leaves with very little time to give feedback, guidance to individual student or solve doubts.

Since Online Coaching is of recent origin comparatively, Satellite Coaching flourished in absence of a viable alternative in spite of all its drawbacks.

But now, students have a much better option. In fact, Online Coaching is flexible, convenient, anywhere, anytime and as many times learning. At the same time it is effective and reasonably priced too.

GOLS Online coaching is much beyond Online Coaching offered by any other players. It offers multi-featured, personalised teaching with rigorous academic support to students. Some of its features are:
