The Super 30 training centre in Patna soon to be established
as Super 100, confirmed the man who created Super 30- Anand Kumar. After IITJEE
results were declared, he wanted to turn it into Super 100 and now it seems he
has cracked a deal with a private university in Bengal.
What is Super 30? It's an institute that selects and trains
30 students for IITs entrance exams. These students belong to underprivileged
families and are given coaching free of cost. Whats surprising is the perfect
scores, this year out of 30, almost 25 made it to IITs. With this tie up, it
will select 30 students from Bengal, turning it into Super 60. Anand kumar had
always wanted to expand but now he will be actually getting a chance to do so.
This year a son of a cab driver in Kolkata (Neeraj Kumar Jha) made it to IITs.
On Friday, Kumar said
that he had always wanted to have more students from different parts of India
like Kolkata, Siliguri, Burdwan and Midnapore and hopefully he will set up centers
there. The center will be for the first time selecting students from Bengal
which is famous for its art and culture possessing a pool of talent. Super 30
will conduct tests and those from underprivileged families will be joining the classes.
Anand pointed out the fact that if proper teaching and
guidance is given, then any talent could succeed with example of Neeraj. He
emphasized that aspirants become aware about his programme through word of
mouth (from those who crack IITs). With Neeraj qualifying, he thought of
expanding in Bengal by opening more branches there in years to come.
While explaining his
strategy towards building super 100, he said that if strength of students
increases then, he would divide students in two groups. Currently, there are
three teachers of physics, chemistry and maths. His brother Pranav Kumar
conducts the exams for the classes.
The reason behind
this tie up is the fact that in last few years Bengal hasn't been able to produce
significant number of students for IITs, with numbers going down in
IIT-Kharagpur as well while people from north and south have moved forward. So,
with Kumar's training centre's success, it will help Bengal see more students making it to the IITs, suggested Samit
Ray, chairman of RICE Group and chancellor of Adamas University. This will be
sponsoring the food and stay of students programme.
At across 57 centers, this entrance test will be held on the same day at Bengal.
