Which study mode is better: online coaching, offline coaching or self study?
yanika singh

Hi sheetal, it is an individual decision based on what suits you. If you wish to go for offline coaching, factors like conveyance, expenses and an institution that suits your requirement should be considered. Same goes for online as well. You must consider the online and offline options thoroughly, whichever offers you the help and coaching that you need, as for the self study part, it is vital whether or not you opt for a coaching.
