Guidance for competitive Exams
The college had arrangements for guiding the students to prepare for various competitive examinations. Special coaching classes were arranged for clearing exams like WBCS, SSC, JAM. Department teachers of Mathematics took initiative to guide for JAM, whereas a number of other faculty members volunteered to help prepare for other examinations. Discussions are on to restart this healthy practice in near future.
Remedial classes have been taken for the last few years regularly for students whom the departments find weak or lacking in one or the other skill to face exams and clear them. These classes are arranged at a time suitable to both the learners and the faculty. This is another in house facility available in the college for the needy, and is free of charges. Remedial coaching has been successful to quite an extent in removing doubts of the slow and moderate learners.
Personal counseling has been a forte of J. K. College. A number of faculty members who have been associated with various NGOs including ones who work for the mentally challenged are always available to come forward for the students. Any student found irregular in attendance or stressed or behaving unusually are provided personal counseling. The individual mentors try to tackle the case initially, and then refer it to the Wellness centre, if needed. We are trying to take professional advice from a renowned psychiatrist whenever needed. The results have been wonderful in a number of cases. Any student may approach the centre for assistance.
