Mysuru: The Competitive Examination Coaching Centre (CECC) of Karnataka State Open University (KSOU) will provide free coaching for aspirants of competitive exams in the coming days, said KSOU Vice-Chancellor Prof. S.Vidyashankar here on Tuesday.
Presiding over the inaugural programme of the launch of the coaching camp for entrance test for recruitment to various posts in Banks, the VC said that KSOU, after passing through a stage of upheavals, is stable now. The slump in admission to KSOU with ample infrastructure was an issue and concern but things have changed now.
The CECC was opened at KSOU to facilitate candidates taking up competitive examinations which has acquired great importance of late. CECC was my dream project soon after I took charge as Vice-Chancellor. The centre had only 15 admissions in the beginning which was commenced in association with Jnanabuthi organisation and Jainahalli Satyanarayana Gowda. Now the centre’s strength stands at 300, he explained.
It was decided to charge a fee of Rs. 1,000 in the beginning at the centre but now reduced to Rs. 300 which is very affordable. In the coming days the coaching would be provided free which has been approved by the Board of Management. The coaching camp for bank examination would provide an opportunity for more Kannadigas to join Banks, opined the VC advising students that hard work only would bring good result and never a shortcut.
Inaugurating the programme, Yaduveer Krishnadatta Chamaraja Wadiyar observed that such coaching camps would be very beneficial for students to face competitive examinations. He opined that students would be in a confused state to appear for any competitive examination which could be drastically reduced through good coaching and lauded KSOU for its initiative.
KSOU Registrar Dr. B. Ramesh, Camp Co-ordinator Jainahalli Satyanarayana Gowda, Scholar Dr.Selvapillai Iyengar and others were present.
