JEE Advanced was earlier known as Indian Institute of Technology – Joint Entrance Examination.
Attributing their success to hard work and unwavering devotion, he said: “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.”
Anand Kumar started the ‘Super 30’ programme in 2002 under his Ramanujam Institute of Mathematics, which selects 30 meritorious candidates each year from economically disadvantaged sections of society and trains them free of cost for admission to the prestigious IITs.
Students from poor families who get into ‘Super 30’ have to undergo 16-hour daily study routine for a year. Coaching, food and accommodation are free for these students.
So far, 396 students from Super 30 have made it to IITs.
