Coimbatore: Over 1,000 Plus Two students in Coimbatore, Erode and Nilgiris districts are attending coaching classes being conducted by the PSG Centre for Non-formal and Continuing Education, for the Tamil Nadu Professional Courses Entrance Examination.
Sources at PSG Institutions said that the students were required to pay a nominal amount for the classes, conducted every day from 7.30 a.m. to 12.30 p.m. Most of the classes were held at the PSG College of Technology, though other facilities in PSG Institutions were also likely to be used.
To handle the classes, the PSG Centre had approached suitable faculty members in Coimbatore and neighbouring areas.

This year, about 400 girls and 600 boys were attending the classes, which would go on till May 11. About 20 to 30 teachers were engaged in the task.
