Ray optics is a fairly easy chapter, even with respect to class 12th Physics. But, some important topics include refraction, reflection and the natural phenomena. What I would suggest you to do is, look at past year KVPY questions from the chapter, and analyse for yourself. Because all the topics are related, you might have to go through everything once.
We do a lot & encourage the children participating in NTSE & other examination even if children are prepared, We do provide the children support also but not for everybody, We make it optional for students those who want to appear such examination. There is not structured programme for it but we do offer to support the children those who are preparing for the examination. At higher level we also extend for the support of SAT examination. We do have NDA academy & coaching support. But we want to bring up leaders coming up with lot of values that’what the future of the society that we encourage the students go for such kind of training.

Hi Ayush Jha ,
In my Opinion you should only go to these coaching institutes if one are in their Top Most Batch else you should not, who would know better than me i myself being a previous student of Resonance Kota, the other batches they all are useless as they do not have good teachers in those batches.
So you can do one thing that is ask for demo classes for both JEE as well as for KVPY and tell them that you want demo classes from the same teachers who will be teaching you later on
