Patna : All the 30 students of Super 30, Bihar's free coaching centre for poor students here, cracked IIT-JEE this year.  "All the 30 students has cleared IIT-JEE," Anand Kumar, the institute's director-cum-founder said at a press conference in Patna on Wednesday.

“It is a matter of great pleasure as we have achieved it again”, he said, adding that since the inception of the coaching centre in 2002, a total of 212 students have cleared IIT-JEE examination, which is considered as one of the toughest examinations in the world.

Kumar said the students hail from very poor families and commit themselves to a year of 16-hour study each day after passing a competitive test to get into the coaching centre.  

"Now we will try to arrange loans for the education of the poor students who qualified for IITs," he said.  

Kumar, who himself missed a chance to study at Cambridge due to lack of money, gives full scholarships including room and travel to the students.

When contacted Shubham Kumar Gautam from Nalanda, whose father is a poor farmer with income less than Rs 2500 per month, said he would not have been able to qualify for IIT had Super 30 not helped him.
