I have recently finished my 10 th standard board exams, and now my parents are really confused whether to join me in any coaching classes (fitjee or aakash) or to join me in any online tuition, since both costs me equally i couldn’t decide any thing, can i aim for cracking iit entrance examination without a coaching center and only by concentrating in my academics in the further years with the help of cbse ncert books,please guide me quickly as this would help in saving my time moreover help to prepare earlier for my jee examination
Yes. I am happy that you have thought of a wonderful approach. Coaching centers are used to guide you and help you practice. If you want to concentrate on self study, and NCERT books it is a very good option. I would suggest you to take the old fiit jee material from any second hand market so you can get all the questions for practice. And reading and understanding ncert books all by yourself. If possible you can join an online class, just for revising the chapter you read and solving few additional problems and to know how to tackle the chapter for the entrance,

Both coaching and online tutoring have their pros and cons. Coaching can give you proper study material and modules and prepare you through Test Series, whereas online tutoring can provide you specific attention. Many students also try to study on their own and many have succeded also, but there is some guidance still needed.
For example, just studying from NCERT books cannot be fruitful in Maths and Physics. You need to prepare using other books and study material which have advanced topics and which are generally asked in JEE. So, guidance will be neccessary. But, choosing between Coaching and Online Tutoring is your decision.

Okay, so the possibilities - self study, one on one classes online or coaching. I'm not in favour of self study as you might miss out many tips and tricks on problem solving and it is very much possible that you don't have enough conceptual depth. Alongside, it requires a lots of guts. A guidance is required especially to know where to draw the line while preparation. Coaching and online tutoring is your call. Some students find the environment of a class good for learning and might not get the same feel taking a tution. On the other hand, if you are oriented towards independent study, a one-one tution after school gives an advantage of being critically reviewed, on what are your strengths, weaknesses, which area to concetrate etc. Added to this, if you are opting for an online tution, you can benefit from both full length classes or doubt clearances.
Problem solving and futher concepts need to be done from out of NCERT, so NCERT aids, but solely can't win the game.
