One of the youngest among the young Turks in teaching, Junaid Khateeb is on his way up. From his first batch of seven, to present batches with around 100 students each, one factor has remained constant – back-breaking hard work.
With excellent notes and a crisp, concise style of teaching, his success is no fluke. And there’s more to the man than just the size of his batches.

Teaching as a profession:
u “There’s a misconception that it’s an easy job – it’s not.”
u “For me, it was a calculated gamble that clicked initially.”
Listen up students!
♦ Attempting the entire 100 marks is very important. People often attempt 80-85 marks and are stuck with scores between 30-40.
♦ Students run towards big names in coaching, without realising that lesser-known names also offer good quality.
♦ CP’s become especially tough nowadays, and leaving topics for options is not going to work anymore.
♦ Will start teaching in some college after a few years.
♦ Am also working on a novel, based on relationships. It’s in a very preliminary stage right now.
