Patna: A record 11,500 aspirants today
turned up for the test for admission to `Super 30`, best
coaching centre in Asia 2010 as rated by Time magazine, for
60 seats to crack IIT JEE.
Institute sources said students from Jharkhand, Madhya
Pradesh and Uttar Pradesh besides Bihar appeared for the test.
"Super 30 centre has a pass rate of 100 per cent. What
makes that feat even more remarkable is that these students
are the poorest of the poor who would otherwise never be able
to afford full-time coaching," the Time magazine which
recently selected the institute among the best in Asia in
2010 had said.
The institute`s founder Anand Kumar, who missed a chance
to study at Cambridge for lack of money, provides coaching
along with hostel and travel to all students free of cost.
