SBI-CLERK & IBPS-CLERK

At Gurmarg Educare, we do teach shortcut tips for math and reasoning but we never adopt any shortcut that hampers aspiration of students taking classes with us. Quality of teaching is another factor that should be judged before you select a competitive exam coaching. It can be done by talking to the counsellor or attending demo classes or even best if you can visit the centre and talk to students already enrolled with the institute.

We also focus especially on weak students enabling them to at least clear the minimum cut off marks in some of the subjects in which they are not as bright as others. In any case, and for all the students we advise focusing on clearing cut off marks for each paper. To ensure the same, we teach them accordingly in the classroom sessions
