Bihar’s Super 30 in Time magazine best list

PATNA: Super 30, Bihar’s free coaching centre which helps economically backward students crack the Indian Institute of Technology-Joint Entrance Examination (IIT-JEE), has been selected by The Time Magazine in the list of The Best of Asia 2010.”It is a matter of great pleasure that the Time Magazine has included our school Super 30 in the list of The Best of Asia,” Anand Kumar, the institute’s director-cum-founder, told IANS. 

“Time Magazine has described Super 30 as the Best Cram School in its list,” he said. 

Every year, about 230,000 students take the exam for a seat in the IITs but only 5,000 grab it. “Last year, 30 of them came from one coaching centre in Patna, capital of the impoverished north Indian state of Bihar. That may not seem like many, but for the Super 30 centre it’s a pass rate of 100 percent,” the magazine said in its latest issue. 

“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,” it added.
