No Lockdown for IIT JEE & NEET preparation Amid COVID-19: ALLEN Career Institute extends Online Coaching in Oman, Kuwait, Bahrain & Saudi Arabia
ALLEN Career Institute is all set to bridge the gap for the NRI students. In today’s scenario, when the entire world is struggling to bring back a normal life, ALLEN gears up to extend Online Coaching services for JEE (Main & Advanced), NEET (UG) and Class 9 & 10 preparation in Oman, Kuwait, Bahrain & Saudi Arabia. Being the pioneer of Career Coaching, ALLEN has been continuously receiving tons of queries and requests from students and parents asking to open up centers in the Gulf region for NRI students. However, given the current COVID-19 situation, the Digital Learning platform with special year-long courses has been launched for NRI students.
ALLEN Digital Classroom allows the student to attend live online classes, ask doubts online, streaming of recorded video lectures for efficient concept delivery, and consistent evaluation with online tests based on specific test patterns straight from the convenience of the student’s home or anywhere in the world through digital connectivity.

ALLEN Digital Classes (ADC) for GCC NRI Students
With the advent of emerging technologies like Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML), ADC brings interactive educational tools to support digital ecosystems. It will help students to experience real-time classroom training while gracing their virtual presence.
“We had plans to launch our services in the GCC region, but the COVID-19 situation stalled that progress. However, since we had a very successful run of ALLEN Digital Classroom (ADC) Platform for students here in India, where more than 95,000+ students are already preparing effortlessly for various engineering and medical entrances, we decided to extend the benefits of Digital learning to our NRI students while keeping in mind the differentiated needs for such students,” remarks ALLEN’s Whole Time Executive, Keshav Maheshwari.
ADC is always striving to get the same quality and experience of the ALLEN ecosystem on the digital educational platform, which played a significant role in producing record-breaking results for the past 32 years.
JEE Main replaces SAT
However, with the recent announcement, the change from SAT Subject to JEE Main will bring a massive difference in the approach to preparation. JEE Main is a high-quality test significantly more stringent than the SAT Subject tests. In India, students start preparing as early as grade 8th to achieve the best results. Add to that, the fact that there are no quality institutions preparing students for such exams. All in all, students who are serious about joining Indian technical colleges through DASA should start serious preparations as early as possible.
Students to get exclusive benefit of DASA quota
More than 50,000 students become eligible to take part in the examinations conducted by the Indian government and private colleges for engineering and medical courses in the GCC region with significant applications from Saudi Arabia and Oman and a sizeable number of students coming from Kuwait and Bahrain also
It is also worth noting that over 76,000 medical seats are offered in various government and private medical colleges throughout the country. The NRI students planning to enter engineering streams also get the exclusive benefit of DASA quota in multiple NITs, IIITs, and other Centrally-funded Institutions in India.
DASA admissions will be through JEE Main from 2021-22 onwards
While currently there is just a notification announcing the change on DASA official website (www.dasanit.org), further details in a circular format are awaited. In 2001, HRD Ministry of India formulated a ‘Direct Admission for Students Abroad’ scheme in the Central Engineering institutes (NITs, IIITs, SPAs, etc. except IITs) to facilitate the Foreign Nationals studying in any country, wards of PIOs, OCIs, and NRI community to pursue technical education in India. In 2019 alone, more than 9 lac+ Indian students appeared for JEE Main examination for close to 40,000 seats. NRI students have long been preparing for SAT subjects and find it manageable to score better. Hence the need for specialized coaching institutions has not been felt as direly.
