"It is again a good news that this year, 24 out of the 30 students made it to the IIT-JEE. In the last three years, all 30 from Super 30 had qualified. This takes the total number of Super 30 students who have qualified for the IIT-JEE in the last nine years to 236," the institute's founder and director Anand Kumar told Wednesday.
He added that the changed pattern of the exam this year could be a reason why his entire batch could not bag the coveted IIT seats. The Time magazine featured it in the list of 'The Best of Asia 2010'. The magazine noted that about 230,000 students appear for the IIT-JEE every year, but just about 5,000 succeed. Students from poor families have to pass a competitive test to get into Super 30 and then commit themselves to a year of 16 hours a day study routine. Coaching, food and accommodation is free for the students.
The Super 30 was started by Anand along with Bihar's Additional Director General of Police Abhyanand. Three years back, Abhyanand dissociated himself from the institute. Read More
