NEW DELHI: Anand Kumar, mathematician and founder of Super 30, a free Joint Entrance Exam (JEE)-Advanced exam coaching programme for poor students aspiring to study in the Indian Institutes of Technology (IITs), is planning to expand the initiative across India, the Indian Express reported.
Presently, only the underprivileged and talented students of Bihar can participate in the free residential coaching programme by Kumar.
“We are planning to contest an entrance exam on a pan-India level to induct the talented youth from all over the country in the ‘Super 30’ programme. The planning and execution are in progress and we are likely to launch the programme in March 2022,” Kumar told the Indian Express.
He and his team is yet to finalise the programme and test structure but the decision has been made to benefit all underprivileged students who aspire to join the IITs but don’t have access to resources to receive JEE coaching, the report said.
“In view of growing demand, Super 30, has decided to increase its reach and access. This year, admissions will not be confined to students of Bihar only. Apart from Bihar, it will be open to students from other states. The procedure of admission will, however, remain the same – through a test,” says the official website of Super 30.
During this program students are provided absolutely free coaching, lodging and food, the website said.
Super 30 is a highly popular and successful educational programme founded by Anand Kumar that trains 30 underprivileged students every year for the IIT entrance exam, without charging any fee, the report said.
His life and work have also been portrayed in the 2019 film, Super 30, where the character of Kumar is played by actor Hrithik Roshan.
