If you did not already know, India's biggest CAT tutor sits headquartered in our very own backyard. And for almost every Hyderabadi student in her final year of undergraduate study now, like these people say on their site, it's time to join TIME.
TIME is an acronym for Triumphant Institute of Management Education. Yes, everyone has their off-days. TIME set up shop in Secunderabad in the summer of '92 with only a small room and one course. Over the next decade, it churned out one of the greatest success stories in education, and now claims to be India's no. 1 coaching institute, with about 40,000 students (in 2005) in mostly its management entrance coaching courses. The institute has now expanded to over 90 branches in over 50 different cities of India, and sends over 500 students just to the IIMs every year. It also gets most of the top ranks in ICET every year.
Needless to say, TIME's coaching for B-School entrance exams is rated very highly by students of Hyderabad and Secunderabad, and is now one of Hyderabad's most famous stereotyped associations, others including "biriyani and Paradise
", "IIT-JEE and Ramayya
", "Old City and Charminar
campus and ABVP", "St. Francis
and college girls" and "fullhyd.com and popular". Erm.
TIME has classes in the early mornings (6:15am-8am) and evenings (6pm-8pm), at various centers in town at Begumpet, Secunderabad, Narayanaguda and Dilsukhnagar. There are classes over the weekends for people who are working. The institute also provides reams of course material, and conducts 20 live All-India Mock CATs for MBA aspirants, where you can guage your exact standing among some 25,000 other TIME students. And the TIME classes are almost utopian in the amount of seriousness that students show - these are the same kids who perfect the art of exactly meeting minimum attendance requirements at college, many times with help from other students.
TIME now provides coaching for CAT and other MBA entrance exams like ICET, MCA entrance exams, GRE/TOEFL and IELTS. In the twin cities, TIME has its offices at Ameerpet, Dilsukhnagar, Mehdipatnam, Narayanguda, Diamond Point and Park Lane.
Year upon year, TIME stands to the test by its commitment to its students, its courseware, its highly-motivated faculty, and, of course, its ubiquitous advertisements selling hope.Offices
