This is rather an important question?

Because coaching classes are expensive and take up a lot of your time.....

Below, we present some reasons on why you can do without a coaching class


But the ultimate decision is yours.....

Before you join a class, make sure you speak to some students of previous batches, take a demo lecture and understand what you are signing up for.


Why you should not join NID Coaching Classes?


Creative Skills:

Lets get the facts straight.

Thousands appear for NID exam every year.

But only a few hundred crack it.



Contrary to the claims of many renowned classes, everyone who opts for classroom coaching doesn’t make it to the prestigious institute.

The main reason behind this is lack of originality or stereotyped thinking.

Low creativity or no out of the box thinking.


If your thinking pattern is not unique, and you lack lateral thinking skills, you’ve got no place in NID.

Developing your creative skills is a very personal process and requires discipline and dedication.

It should probably start at a young age.

Classroom Coaching cannot inculcate creativity in a student.

It is something that a student naturally has. It can only be enhanced with the help of some experimental techniques.


Pattern Changes:

NID exam pattern is not like medical or engineering entrance.

Its unpredictable.

As soon as the students get comfortable with the new paper style, the examiners change it again.



In 2016, NID changed its pattern to 70% MCQ & 30% Subjective Questions.

As soon as the new pattern was out, there was an immediate focus on GK questions by the coaching classes.



But NID did it again.

The NID 2019 paper had just 30% MCQs and 70% subjective.

This pattern change was unannounced.

Thousands of candidates had by now practiced time management according to the established 2016 pattern.

Everyone is clueless as to what the next year pattern is going to be.


Individual Thinking:

All subjective questions in NID are to understand the candidates thinking pattern.

Answers are neither correct nor incorrect like other entrance exams.

It is not like NEET or JEE where every student comes up with the same answer for questions.

There can be multiple correct answers to a single question.



It is observed that students who attend NID classroom coaching develop preconceived notions as to how to answer a particular question and start pre-preparing for the answers if a similar question comes up.

This promotes stereotype thinking & kills genuine thinking.

Also the problem is that the examiners come to know when the answers are prepared beforehand.

They are looking for students who can come up with unique answers in a limited amount of time.


Drawing Skills:

Sketching skills, like any other skill set can be learnt.

Numerous books are available in the market to improve your skills.


Lack of Time:

Maximum Students opt for NID Coaching in Standard XI or XII and end up paying high fees.

Juggling between college, school or work, it becomes difficult to focus on NID preparations.



Long hours of attending classes is very tiring for students.

Also when exam time is near, there is unnecessary pressure by the parents on the student to perform well.

This uncalled tension kills creativity.


High Fees:

Any reputed institute is charging anywhere between Rs. 30,000 – Rs. 40,000 for one year preparations.

For two years, it is even more.


Rather than spending this much money on classroom coaching, NID study material or books are a good option as they cost around one-tenth of the cost of the tutions.


Who should join NID Coaching Classes?


There are some benefits of taking up NID Coaching Classes also....



It provides structure, regularity and discipline to your practice.

It may help students (already juggling multiple tuitions) take out some dedicated "NID Only" time


But don't presume, joining classes is a replacement to hardwork and dedication.
