About the V&R ACE College Foundation Programme :




The V&R Approach for Competitive Exams (ACE) College Foundation Programme  will aid in the establishment of a solid General Studies foundation, which is the most important part in many exams, along with inculcation of essential Study Habits, and the development of a Proper Aptitude for various Competitive Exams. It intends to provide the base for entry to the public sector through competitive exams.


The V&R ACE College Foundation Programme intends to fill the void created by the absence of a trusted and experienced guidance programme. The Programme will aid in building a prerequisite knowledge base with all the necessary information and understanding by being there at every step. It intends to make the pillar of an aspirant’s foundational knowledge stronger than ever, without compromising daily classes at college.



V&R ACE College Foundation Programme’s humble idea is to reinvent:


  • how preparation for Competitive Exams has to be approached
  • how to make the best use of time to lay a strong foundation as early as possible
  • Help the student realise her strong and weak areas as soon as possible to work on them


A redesigned pedagogy to deliver classes is the key to the Programme. It has been designed keeping in mind the interest and learning capacity of college students and also what can help them best retain their studies in order to perform better in the various Competitive Exams.

Why choose the V&R ACE College Foundation



Many aspirants dream of a career in public service, some start as soon as they get into college, and some by the end of their graduation. But the nature of competitive examinations conducted for public jobs require guidance as the first and foremost requisite to simply start.


However unfortunately, most aspirants falter in the very first stage due to many factors like the absence of an experienced mentor at home, or helpful seniors at college, or the unavailability of quality information and study materials etc. It is therefore not uncommon that many aspirants give up, or at least postpone their goals till regular college education is completed.


we have observed that:

  • Before starting preparation for Competitive Exams, college aspirants wait for their graduation to be completed.
  • Aspirants who lack a basic foundation in General Studies knowledge feel discouraged or insecure studying alongside more experienced students when they join a coaching institute.
  • Aspirants feel disoriented when they start the preparation process because they lack prior guidance and knowledge of the Competitive Exams’ syllabus, question patterns, study materials, etc.
  • In general, aspirants who haven't made up their minds feel insecure about their preparation.

ACE intends to address all these challenges and provide a better platform to college going students to cater to the needs of a competitive world waiting for them outside.
