Patna: Time magazine has selected mathematician Anand Kumar's school -- Super 30 -- in the list of Best of Asia 2010.
Last year, all the 30 students of the coaching institute set up by a mathematician Anand Kumar in Patna cracked the IIT-JEE examination.
“Super 30 centre has a pass rate of 100 per cent. What makes that feat even more remarkable is that these students are the poorest of the poor who would otherwise never be able to afford full-time coaching,” Time magazine said.
The students need to pass a test to get into Super 30, and then commit themselves to a year of 16-hour daily studies. Expressing happiness over the recognition, Kumar said, “It is a pleasurable moment for us as Super 30 has become an example of what's possible when human potential is tapped.” -- PTI
