Alakh Pandey’s Life before Physics Wallah

Money being a problem in Alakh’s life turned out to be a blessing. Alakh disclosed that to overcome the expenses and make some extra cash he started teaching and He enjoyed teaching. Alakh started teaching students from 9th to 12 Standard who were preparing for exams like IIT-JEE and NEET.

After completing his graduation, Alakh decided to start coaching full-time. Although this was a good decision made by him at a certain point, he felt that Offline coaching has a limited impact on students so there Alakh decided to move online.

Alakh Pandey in College

Alakh Scored 660 Rank in Uttar Pradesh State Exam and He went to HBDI and chooses Mechanical. Being a topper in School he maintained his academics in the 1st Semester by securing 80%.

Dropping out from College

Alakh was disappointed in college since no practical knowledge was being provided to them and The knowledge which was being provided to them was totally unimplemented in Jobs. On the other side, Alakh’s coaching interest was growing simultaneously. So he decided to drop out of college.

Struggle faced in shifting from Offline Coaching to Online Coaching

Alakh Says that “After leaving college things became easier for me and the Risk-Taking Ability became more”. The main factor of Alakh shifting from offline coaching to online was when Mr. Faruqi (College and Senior Teacher) said to Alakh that in the next 10 years they are going to teach over 7000 Students.

After hearing this statement Alakh had a thought in mind that there is a limit to offline teaching, and it’s the right time to shift online. In the initial days, he made a page on Facebook and even offered Rs 50 to students to join his group but such tactics never worked.

YouTube Channel- Physics Wallah

Beginning in 2014

This was the time in 2014 when Alakh Pandey started a YouTube Channel with the name “Physics Wallah”. When He uploaded videos on YouTube for the first time, the response was not good from Students and worked continuously till 2016.

Started teaching ICSE Students

In 2016 Alakh Decided to start teaching ICSE Students in Class 10th. Since No one was teaching ICSE students and here he gained 10,000 subscribers in one year. Students use to say “Sir you have fire and you will do something huge in the game”

First Income from YouTube

Students provided great feedback to Physics Wallah and there were only 4-5 Educators who were teaching on YouTube in 2016-17. You will be surprised to know that Alakh Pandey got Rs 8000 from YouTube as his first income.

Physics Wallah Getting 300 Crore offer from EdTech Startup

When Alakh Pandey received a 300 Crore offer from an edtech Company and the curious thing to know in this incident is that at that time Alakh Pandey was not earning a lot of money. So He made two columns on a paper in which he penned on one side “Why He should Join” and “Why he should not join”

When he was justifying the points, The list got filled with the reasons why he should join but when he was writing on Why he should not join, At that moment he realized that Students have a deep connection and faith with him.

If he accepts that offer then the faith and trust will be broken. This was the reason why Physics Wallah does not emerge with other edtech brands and today This company stands among those brands with a chest of 56Inch.

PW Offline Kota Center Details

There will be two wings IIT JEE and NEET in which engineering and Medical will be taught to students separately in the same building. PW will not only charge minimal fees but also ensure the selection of students to their deserving colleges and institutes. 

Students from all across India will be able to attend the classes in PW Offline coaching, 10,000 Students in one shift and 20,000 in double shifts. 

Physics Wallah Ideology

Alakh believes that from the crowd of students, each student has the capability to crack the exam if he gets the proper guidance. He also said that if people say that only 0.1% can get selected in IIT then this is correct but if you say that only 0.1% has the status to achieve IIT then this statement will be inappropriate. 

Alakh thinks that every student who dreams to get into IIT, He can do that if he gets the guidance from India’s best teachers who can pick the student from the basics to pro, can built an emotional connect with the student

Why did Physics Wallah have to open its offline coaching in KOTA?

  1. There were many students who wanted to study in Kota but PW was not in Kota and their parents force them to go for offline coaching
  2. Some students say that they get distracted while using the Physics wallah app. They are not enough disciplined to use the app appropriately.
  3. Few students are not having the proper environment to study in their home, and they need an efficient environment to solve questions and they wanted to get into some branded institute in Kota.

Students which I have mentioned in Point 3 are those who come to Kota under the pressure of their parents, by taking loans from friends and relatives. They pay 1.5-2.0 Lakhs to coach and the same coaching says that if you’re late for IIT now you should go for some other college and have some space in the last batches we’ll see what we can do for you.  This is how they manipulate the Bankers Vs Rankers.

Top Batch Students are our Rankers and other Students of lower batches are our Bankers. With the fees of lower batch students we are able to get best faculty and provide top class facilities to our Top Rankers. 

(A1 Wale to Rankers hai, baki sab hamare bankers hai. Inhi Bankers ki wajah se mere jaise ko salary and Rankers ko top class facilities milti hai)

Jitendra Kumar – TVF Kota Factory S1

From the above-mentioned dialogue, I hope you got an idea of how Big Shots in Kota Coaching Space manipulate the parents whereas Physics wallah claims to provide the best facilities to every student whether he is topper, mediocre, or average he will get every facility which will ensure his selection.
