Private tuition: BSC Academy in Beltola, Guwahati, Assam

Every year, Guwahati—the biggest city in Northeast India and the gateway to the region—welcomes thousands of stu­dents from all eight states to take admission in colleges and universities. Many of them stay back in the city after completing their regular study to prepare for competitive examinations for central and state government jobs from a raft of coaching centres that, over the years, have mushroomed, like any other big city.

While the Covid-induced lockdowns have compelled many big coaching institutes to shut shop, many others, earlier having little traction among students, started flourishing.
