The super success of Super 30 seems all set to get replicated in Bengaluru. Rashtrotthana Parishat along with BASE has started an initiative on the lines of Super 30 in Patna. The organisation will train underprivileged but meritorious students for the toughest engineering entrance exam i.e. the IIT-JEE.
Notably, Super 30 has carved a niche for itself in the field of education by getting most of its students placed in the IITs. The success rate was a remarkable 100 percent in three consecutive years starting 2008.
The programme has been launched in the “Silicon Valley of India” with the motive of guiding the poor SSLC students for the IIT-JEE exam. The students will be also given free food and accommodation along with the training.
Under the programme, around thirty to forty students will be selected. The selection will be done on the basis of the marks scored in class 11th. But the final selection depends on the performance of the student in the written test and interview conducted across the state.
All the students who will be appearing in the SSLC exams 2012 are eligible to apply for this scheme if they fulfill these two conditions. One; they should have secured at least 80 percent in class 11th. Two; their parental income should not exceed Rs. 1.5 lakh annually.
The selected students will be admitted to the Rashtrotthana PU College of Thanisandra for the science course. Experts from the PU College and BASE will give them the requisite training to crack the exam.
The response has been encouraging. As of now, over 2,500 applicants have applied. The test is scheduled on 5th February and will be based on the syllabus of class 10th for Science and Mathematics.
