WHY THE STATE’S STUDENTS AREN’T ACING THE JEES

Though students from the Chennai secured five out of the top ten ranks in the JEE (Advanced) exam in 2016, not one of them was from Karnataka. The best all-India rank any student from Karnataka could bag was 180.

Experts say this is because students from the state often prefer options from within the state.

“The number of students who appear for the IIT entrance from the state is very less. This is because they look for other options like the Indian Institute of Science (IISc),” says Gaurav Goyal, centre head, FIITJEE. He said the establishment of an IIT in Karnataka might change this trend.

“Traditionally, the students from Karnataka had good higher educational centres within the state. So the number of students appearing for this entrance from the state is relatively lower,’ said Vallish Herur, director, Base coaching institute.

Dr G Sridhar, MD of the Ace Creative Learning Centre, said, “A large percentage of students who qualify the exam are children who drop a year and prepare exclusively for this exam. We do not have that trend in Karnataka.” He added that often, in centres outside the state, the preparation started from class eight. “By the time these children reach class 10, they complete class 12 syllabus. So, in effect, children who prepare longer do better.”

The success story of Tapas – a free residential program by Rashtrotthana Parishat and Base training centre, where deserving students from economically-challenged sections of the society are trained for national level competitive examinations – show that an integrated model can sure improve the results. 11 of the 26 students trained at the program have qualified in the JEE advanced 2016.
