Extra Edge Academy is the brainchild of founders who have consistently excelled at competitive exams. Our founders have the distinction of being in the top 1% in MAH MBA CET, CAT, GRE - some of the toughest exams in the state, country and the world respectively. Our founders realised that their success was built on the strong foundation of deep conceptual understanding and early focus on aptitude skills due to participation in - Maharashtra Scholarship Exam, MTSE and NTSE.
All the important competitive exams like UPSC, MPSC, CAT, GRE, GMAT that allow entry into the most prestigious universities of higher education or key government roles, evaluate students on their conceptual clarity and problem solving skills. This is because success in business, professional careers and jobs are also seen to depend on the same skills.
While the scholastic education system equips students with knowledge about the world around us, it's pedagogy and the examination pattern does not delve into application of that knowledge to solve real problems. This mantle is taken up by competitive exams like Scholarship, NTSE and Olympiad. Unfortunately, school time-table and activities don’t allow most schools to focus on preparing students for these exams.
Our endeavour is to supplement school education with competitive exam training so that our students develop a problem solving mindset based on the solid foundation of knowledge acquired at school. We focus on building the foundations that are required for succeeding in these competitive exams - structured problem solving, critical & analytical thinking applied on a base of solid conceptual understanding.
This will ensure that when the time comes for your child to face career-defining competitive exams and real life problem solving in career and life, they are well equipped to take off and fly high!
