Class 12 students of the Union-government run Jawahar Navodaya Vidhyalaya (JNV) Bundi have proved their mettle in the JEE Advanced 2017 again.
With the help of free coaching by Resonance coaching institute of Kota, 44 of the total 49 Class 12 students of the residential school have cracked the examination, considered as one of the toughest in the country.
Coming from rural backgrounds and poor families, these students have proved that they were no less in any way than the private school students whose parents spend lakhs on their coaching to pass the entrance examination.
In the last seven years, more than 250 students of the JNV Bundi have found place in the IITs, thanks to help from Resonance Eduventures Limited, a coaching institute of Kota, and Dakshina Foundation, an NGO.
“Free schooling, accommodation and meals are provided to students of weaker families at JNV Bundi. Apart from this, free coaching is also offered by a Kota-based coaching institute to help us succeed in JEE Advanced,” said Nirmal Rajput (17), son of a mini-truck driver from Gwalior (Madhya Pradesh) and a Class 12 student at JNV Bundi, who cleared the JEE Advanced 2017 with All India Rank (AIR) 327.
His father, Dinesh Singh Rajput said, “Qualifying JEE Advanced is a major challenge and when so many aspirants from poor and rural background crack JEE Advanced from a single school then it is certainly a great achievement.”
Another JNV Bundi student Amarpreet Singh (18) said, “We have made it to the IIT due to free coaching, otherwise it is not possible for students like me to crack JEE Advanced.” Amarpreet’s father runs a small handloom shop in Karnal (Haryana).
JNV Bundi principal Suresh Maheshwari is obviously elated over the performance of his students. “Out of the 49 students in Class 12, who were given free coaching, 44 students have cracked JEE Advanced 2017, which is 90% success,” he said. The school, which runs classes from Class 6 to 12, has enrolled 590 students this year.
RK Verma, managing director, Resonance Eduventures Limited, Kota, said that his organisation and Dakshina Foundation equally share the fee burden under their corporate social responsibility to provide free coaching to the students.
