All 30 students coached by Bihar’s ‘Super 30’ have cracked the JEE-Advanced examination held for admissions in Indian Institute of Technology (IIT). JEE-Advanced examination, which was earlier known as the Indian Institute of Technology-Joint Entrance Examination, is the most competitive examination for engineering.
‘Super 30’ is a coaching centre that provides free coaching for underprivileged students. The students here are children of taxi drivers, farmers, masons, and daily wagers and are mostly affiliated to the Bihar School Examination Board.
While speaking to IANS, Founder-Mathematician of ‘Super 30’, Anand Kumar said,
All our 30 students have made it through the Joint Entrance Examination-Advanced, taking the total number of our successful students so far to nearly 400.
Anand said that the success of these students in the competitive exam can be attributed to their hard work and unwavering devotion. He further said to IANS,
We will hold tests (to take in students for coaching) in different parts of the country after giving detailed information about it on our website.
The ‘Super 30’ programme was started by Anand Kumar in the year 2002 under his Ramanujam Institute of Mathematics. In this programme, thirty meritorious candidates are selected each year from economically disadvantaged sections of society. These selected students are then provided free training to enable them to get admissions in the prestigious IITs.
The students from the underprivileged background who are selected in the ‘Super 30’ undergo a 16-hour daily study routine for a year. The coaching, food, and accommodation are provided free to these students. There have been 396 students from ‘Super 30’ who have cracked the JEE-Entrance examination and made it to the IITs till now.
The contribution of ‘Super 30’, by working with underprivileged students and motivating them to excel in life, is definitely respectworthy.
