VIITA - This integrated program for the Senior Secondary students has always been preparing them in a fundamental way. Teaching is methodological so that students do well in NEET, IIT – JEE, Boards, NTSE, KVPY, Olympiads and other entrance exams. Testing pattern of NEET, IIT - JEE keeps on changing but the key aspect of the test is to judge the analytical ability of the aspirants along with the understanding of fundamentals.
