Patna: Super30 founder Anand Kumar today described as "personal view" Infosys chairman emeritus N R Narayana Murthy's speech about the deterioration in quality of students in IITs and said it was high time to change the pattern of questions for the IIT-JEE exams.

"Murthy's view that the quality of students entering IITs has deteriorated over the years due to the coaching classes is nothing but his personal view," Kumar told reporters here.

"If poor quality of students reach IITs, then why the IIT professors set the pattern of questions which lacks knowledge... there is a huge gap what is being taught in Class XI and XII and the questions asked in IIT," Anand said.

"It is the high time to change the pattern of IIT-JEE Entrance Test", Super30 founder.

Anand's super30 has carved the niche for itself for coaching 30 students from underprivileged sections of society to crack the IIT-JEE since 2003.

Voicing his displeasure over the quality of engineers who pass out of the IITs, Murthy has said there is a need to overhaul the selection criteria for students seeking admission to the prestigious technology institutions.

Addressing a gathering of hundreds of former IITians at a Pan IIT summit in Newyork, Murthy said the quality of students entering Indian Institutes of Technology (IITs) has deteriorated over the years due to the "coaching classes that prepare engineering aspirants."
