If media reports coming out of Patna are to be true, the Super 30 and its founder Anand Kumar is a fraud who had projected inflated success figure misled IIT aspirants
According to former students, Anand Kumar takes cut from another coaching centre as he passes on students to other institute.
Founded in 2002, Patna’s Super-30 stunned the country in 2008 with 100 per cent success rate at IIT JEE. Though the institute had started to make a mark in 2004, but it was for the first time in 2008 that all 30 students picked up for Super-30 batch qualified IIT JEE. It also made to the Time Magazine in 2010.
Some of these students have alleged that Anand Kumar made a misleading claim this year that 26 out of his 30 students cleared the IIT JEE exam. The students said that only three from Super-30 batch could qualify for IIT JEE.
After the results for this year’s IIT JEE (Advance) were announced, Anand Kumar claimed that 26 of Super-30 students cracked the exam. A local daily quoted former Super-30 students as saying that fascinated and encouraged by the success of Super-30 over the years, IIT aspirants would land in Patna seeking admission in Anand Kumar’s institute. But the IIT aspirants, the former Super-30 students claimed, came in for a rude shock when they were asked to take admission in the Ramanuj Classes.
