An initiative by District Collector K.S. Palanisamy, and Education Department officials here to help economically poor students from government schools get admission to Indian Institute Technology (IIT) and National Institute of Technology (NIT) has yielded results.
Five students who were given free special training for almost the entire 2017-18 academic year had now cleared the Joint Entrance Examination (main).
They were: M. Yadeswaran and K. Vignesh of Nanjappa Corporation Higher Secondary School, Tirupur; R. Arunachaleeswar of Government Higher Secondary school at Iduvampalayam; V. Saravanan of Government Higher Secondary School at Kethanur; and R. Jnanamoorthi of Government Higher Secondary School at Velliravalli.
“Clearing the examination will ensure them of a seat in one of the NITs (formerly Regional Engineering Colleges) in the country. All these students will now be appearing for the JEE (Advanced) examination to be held within the next few days which was the second stage screening,” Chief Education Officer S. Shanthi told The Hindu.
Ms. Shanthi said tat 30 students from different government schools were given the free coaching. Experts in various subjects were brought in from different parts of the State.
“We are continuing with the coaching to help them clear the JEE (advanced) too,” she added.
