“UGC point (1998) is a brain child of Dr. Pramod Kumar Singh, who completed his PhD from Jawaharlal Nehru University. It was the first institute at all India level to provide coaching/guidance for exams related to higher studies in Sciences & Engineering. Physics department was entrusted to Narendra Parmar, (MSc, JNU), who was a CSIR-JRF and GATE qualified. He took the responsibility to teach and provide thorough guidance for Physics students aspiring for JRF/GATE, seeking admission in IITs, IISc, JNU and other prestigious schools. He started as alone member and covered most of the topics (Classical Mechanics, Quantum Mechanics I & II, Mathematical Physics, Statistical Mechanics, Solid State, At. Mol. Physics, Electronics etc) on his own. He started the 1 st batch with 5 students but achieved limited success.
The story was no different for the 2nd batch as well. It was the 3 rd batch with 20 students hailing from different states changed the whole scenario and 7 students qualified for JRF-NET and many with good GATE score. Thereafter, he never looked back and his success story continued exponentially. With positive words sailing around number of student rose to more than 150 in single batch and other teachers from IIT-D were hired to assist him. Narendra Parmar provided world class platform at the UGC point not only at the national level but also at international level. One of his students (Namrata Purwar) went on to qualify for GRE and successfully completed PhD in University of Wisconsin (UW), USA. Through Parmar’s guidance 400 of students went on to study at premiere institutes IITs, IISc and JNU. Currently, many of them are working in RnD in companies and as Professors in national institutes like IITs.
Parmar left UGC point to earn PhD in Washington State (USA) but he continuously provided his expert guidance through skype and time to time onsite. He provides junior faculty a great input so that students keep on qualifying exams and pursue their dreams. Dr. Parmar still provides thorough guidance for qualifying GRE exams so that willful students can go to USA, Canada and Europe for higher studies. UGC point is a great destination for fulfilling your dreams. We feel proud in helping you and shaping your career and we mean it…we feel sky is the limit.
