In a major decision aimed at preparing its students for various competitive examinations, the Mahatma Jyotiba Phule Telangana Backward Classes Welfare Residential Educational Institutions Society plans to start foundation courses right from class V onwards. These courses aim to equip the students for Joint Entrance Examination (JEE), National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (NEET) and Civil Services, among other examinations, apart from regular academics — all this without losing focus on extra-curricular activities.
The idea, as an official explained, is to secure maximum admissions in prestigious Indian Institutes of Technology (IITs), All India Institutes of Medical Sciences (AIIMSs) and other medical and dental colleges across the country, besides cracking the Civil Services.
BC students Super 80 batch
The Society intends to conduct these foundation classes from next academic year by starting ‘Super 80’ batch. Taking erstwhile district as a unit, it plans to select 80 students through a screening test. Selected students will be enrolled for the courses with specialised material developed by teachers.
A ‘Super 80’ batch for students of class VIII began last month and they were being given foundation programmes for admissions into IITs. Similarly, ‘Super 100’ programme, an intensive coaching for JEE and NEET, is being run by the Society for Intermediate students.
“The society will soon take the State government’s permission to start the Super 80 programme from class V from the next academic year. There are plans to start specialised junior residential college campuses for JEE and NEET coaching once the present class VIII students reach Intermediate,” an official said.
This year students will get hands-on training in arts and music as the Society decided to introduce classes in the summer camps, which will begin soon.
