Very Important Note
i. PCP sessions should not be compared with or considered as regular teaching classes of a Formal Teacher Training Institution. PCP sessions are, in fact, doubt clearing sessions of some genuine and common doubts of a majority of trainees.
ii. It should be borne in mind that if every trainee would prepare a long list of doubts, then it would be practically impossible on the part of a tutor to clarify all the doubts of all the trainee with the time frame.
iii. In view of the above mentioned reasons trainees are advised to identify local ‘no-cost’ resource like teachers or retired teachers or trainees of PTTI and get maximum doubt clarified from them.
