How well-connected is Hyderabad to the rest of India?
Hyderabad is comfortably located and well-connected as it can be easily accessed from all parts of the country (North, South, East, West, and Northeast). It has one of the best student infrastructures in terms of physical connectivity (both inter-city and intra-city), mobile and broadband connectivity, hostels, etc.
How good is Hyderabad from a student’s health perspective?
Health is of prime concern for any student during his/her study phase. A poor health will degrade the performance of the student and will not let the student realize his/her full potential. Air and water qualities of a city are two main deciding factors for the health of an individual. According to a WHO global air quality report, air pollution levels in Delhi are nearly 4 times that of Hyderabad, making Hyderabad relatively much cleaner than Delhi. During the crucial months of Oct-January (for a GATE|ESE aspirant), Delhi is even more polluted (AQI reaching hazardous levels of >500) while the AQI levels of Hyderabad during the corresponding period is a safe <100 level.
How is the climate of Hyderabad?
The climate of Hyderabad is one of the best in the country. Neither winters are harsh (with minimum temperature of around 12-14°C) nor the summers are punishing (with a maximum temperature of around 40-42°C). In contrast, Delhi is infamous for its extreme climate (scorching summers and bone-chilling winters). Students will definitely enjoy the pleasant weather in Hyderabad.
What is the total expenditure going to be for my coaching?
The cost of coaching and the cost of living in Hyderabad is much less as compared to that of Delhi. A typical GATE|ESE coaching program in Delhi costs a student nearly 1.25 lakh to 1.75 lakh (75k to 90k towards coaching fee + 50k to 75k for 6-9 months of living expenses). In comparison, GATE|ESE coaching in Hyderabad at OHM Institute costs a student nearly 65k to 80k (37k towards coaching fee + 30k to 45k for 6-9 months of hostel expenses) which is just 50% of Delhi’s.
Note: The costs will be significantly lower in case of OHM ONLINE Classes.
