JNV Bundi sends 44 students to IITs

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.

JEE Advanced 2017: Jammu & Kashmir posted CRPF Jawan’s son ranked AIR 6

When Sourav Yadav’s father got posted in Jammu & Kashmir, his mother decided to shift to Kota from Haryana leaving behind her job for better studies options for her son. Sourav didn’t disappoint them. He scored 330 marks out of 366 in JEE Advanced 2017 and secured All India Rank (AIR) 6. 

Hailing from a small town in Bhiwani district, Haryana, Sourav got to know about engineering when he came to Kota. During his secondary (Class 10) examination he enrolled in the Resonance Coaching institute, Kota. His mother was keen on providing better education for her son and left her job as a school teacher in Haryana to accompany him for his studies. “My father doesn’t get much time to accompany us as he is posted in Jammu & Kashmir where tension escalates every now and then. My mother is the strongest pillar of my success in JEE Advanced 2017,” said Sourav. The intelligent lad loves home-cooked food and staying away from his mother’s ‘Haath ka Khana‘ was too difficult for him. His mother, being a mother, knew that and decided to sacrifice her career for the better future of her son.

Sourav wants to take up Computer Science in IIT Bombay, which is a dream institute for any IIT aspirant. He is fond of video games and application software, and is interested in developing his own apps and software for the people. “I would like to learn the nuances of Computer Science and develop something on my own. The urge to take up Computer Science as a career option came to me while I saw my maternal uncle, who is a software engineer working on interesting projects. He motivated me to take up engineering as well,” informed Sourav.

Although, Sourabh had secured AIR 108 in JEE Main, he never gave prominence to rankings as such. “I was concerned about the percentage marks I score in any examination. Ranks will follow it’s course. By doing that I have always remained immune from the extra pressure that students often take while writing an important exam,” said Sourav.

Topping one of the toughest entrance examination in the country came naturally to this youngster as he was preparing for the advance level exam even before JEE Mains. “I prepared myself from the very beginning for JEE Advanced. I used to self-analyse my problem areas and work on those from time to time,” concluded Sourav.

NTSE 2017: A Detailed Analysis by Resonance Experts Team

NTSE 2017: The National Talent Search Examination (NTSE) is a national level examination cum scholarship programme. The scholarship programme is conducted by NCERT and students studying in class X were eligible for NTSE 2016 examination and selection procedure. NTSE stage-I was conducted in the month of November/ December across the nation. Stage II was conducted on May 14, 2016.

 Eligibility: As per the eligibility criteria of NTSE, all the students studying in X standard are eligible to apply for this scholarship programme. A student from any state of the country can register for this examination and scholarship scheme. A student can be from a government or a private school.

 Pattern/ Syllabus: The National Talent Search Examination is conducted for students studying at the Class X level. The examination consists of three tests:

  1. Mental Ability Test (MAT)
  2. Language Comprehension Test ( LCT)
  3. Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT)

NTSE Mental Ability Test (MAT) Syllabus

This test is to judge the power of reasoning, ability to think, ability to judge, evaluate or discriminate, ability to visualize in the space, spatial orientation, etc. A variety of questions, for example – analogies, classification, series, pattern perception, hidden figures, coding decoding, block assembly, problem solving, etc. are used for this purpose.

NTSE Scholastic Aptitude Test (LCT) Syllabus (Language Test)

Language Test is designed to judge the power of reading comprehension, logical sequencing; interpretative, evaluative, predictive and creative components of language. The test is conducted for English and Regional Languages.

NTSE Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT) Syllabus (Maths, Science & Social Science)

This section is conducted to judge how much of text-book knowledge you have gained. As India doesn’t have any single unified board system, NCERT has not prescribed any particular syllabus for the State Level Examination or for National Level Examination.

You can expect questions that are asked at the National Level (Stage-II) to be standard of Classes IX and X level.

Question Paper: The medium of test is English and regional languages and it comprised of 200 question. The students have to select and mark one right answer from the four given options. Each right answer carry one point each, thus making the total score of the candidate in a test equal to the number of questions answered correctly. However, at the second stage 1/3 mark is deducted for every wrong answer.

Merit Clause: All the students who achieve requisite scores at this level automatically qualify for scholarships that are handed over by NCERT.

Screen Shot 2017-05-14 at 6.48.37 PM

Resonance Experts made the following observations:

  • Mental Ability: Paper was lengthier than last year’s paper and that is why it is considered more difficult than last year’s paper.
  • Chemistry and Biology: Both these subjects had lengthier and confusing questions which made both of them relatively difficult from last year.
  • Physics: The paper was relatively easy than last year as questions were fairly straight forward.
  • Mathematics: The questions in mathematics were difficult than last year as the focus was on complex topics this year. Two questions of common roots were particularly ambiguous.
  • English: The paper was relatively difficult than last year’s paper.
  • Social Science: Paper was extremely lengthy and 8 questions came out of syllabus which made it a difficult paper to solve.

Overall, it was observed that the paper was on the tougher side compared to last year and thus cutoff is expected to decrease.
