Ques . What are the focus areas of development while studying in the Col. Roy Defence Academy ?
We at col. Roy Defence Academy have classified the focus on two categories:-
➢ General where we keep students at the level of exam and consider students as one entity.
➢ Individual – this area of focus is to deal with individual problems/struggle which a student faces and to provide specified solutions. Hence both the areas of focus are taken care of. General area deals with the requirement of the exam and individual deals with the requirement of a particular student.
