The focus on fundamentals is important. A student, after completing his/her education, is able to face the competitive world with equanimity, once armed with these fundamentals. Even while opting for higher studies, the student has to go through a complete scan of what and how much he/she knows. Exams like IIT-JEE, AIEEE, AIIMS, AFMC, CAT, SAT, GRE, GMAT, are designed to test the fundamental strengths of a student. Hence, the need of the hour is to build the fundamental base as strong as possible.
