Coaching makes a big difference to a student in obtaining a medical college seat or entering into the portals of IIT, NIT or any other central government-run colleges. Our aim, ever since we conceived ANTHE in 2010, has been to reach our high value coaching programmes to the unreached and the deserving students anywhere in the country. ANTHE gives us an opportunity to prepare them for NEET and IIT-JEE at their own pace, wherever they are. We are confident that just like the previous years, lakhs of students will make use of ANTHE 2021 and take a valuable step in securing a bright future.”
