Workshop

About I-Desire Workshop

“I-Desire” workshop is being organized every year since 2002 in the fond memory of Late Mr. S.K.Dubey, alumnus of IIT Kanpur. The motive of this workshop has been to inspire and motivate the students of Patna, aspiring for IITs.I-Desire has been successful in achieving its desired result. During the workshop, we promote an informal interaction between the IIT JEE aspirants and the IITians.Students discuss their personal problems. And, we discuss some topics, which we think, is difficult for the students.

What we do at our Workshops

“I-DESIRE”, ever since its birth has worked to deal with the students’ problem at its own level. We started organizing four days’ workshop every year. Following is the agenda of our workshops: Tell the students about the exact pattern and syllabus of IITJEE. Tell them about the books they should follow as well as the how to use each of those books. Describe the type of questions asked by the IITJEE and discuss the ways of solving them in different ways so that the aspirants may have a better insight into the IIT JEE.Discuss the topics generally ignored by the coaching institutes but having a significant weight age in the JEE paper. Motivate the students by taking them on a virtual tour of the IITs for which, we use to take the help of videos from the different IITs. This makes their spirits rise high for the IITJEE.Tell the students what not to do while preparing for the IITJEE. Arrange for one to one interaction between the aspirants and IITians so that they can clear all their confusions and seek personal guidance from their predecessors. Tell them about the ordeal we faced and the response we produced to them. Tell them about the mistakes we committed while preparing for the IITJEE, so that, they may not repeat the same mistakes.

Motivation for organizing this workshop:

Late Mr. Satyendra Kumar Dubey was an alumnus of Civil Engineering, IIT Kanpur.He was a diehard honest and wanted to work for the betterment of our state, Bihar. He was working for NHAI Project in Gaya, where he came to know about the ongoing corruption. He fought against the ongoing corruption, but unfortunately, he had to sacrifice his life. We believe that, those who have struggled in their life always contribute to the society. Thus, this workshop was started in an endeavor to help the sincere students qualify IIT JEE so that, these people help in uplifting our state to new heights.

We are going to organize a test on the basis of which, we will be selecting top 50 students.These students will further be divided into 10 groups. Each group will have one IITian as his mentor. This mentor will maintain personal contact with him upto JEE 2007. He will assess his performance from time to time. He will also guide him continually.

In addition to this, the students will get free of cost guidance from three of the topmost teachers of Patna providing training for JEE. We are very glad to announce their name.
Prof. Deb Mukherjee,
Mr. Anil Parmar,
Er. Vikas Rahi.Further, Vijay IITJEE Test Series will be providing 100% scholarship to these students.

IIT JEE Seats Distribution – A Report

IIT JEE Seats Distribution – A Report

IIT seat distribution can be analyzed from the below given facts. In 2007 out of 2, 43,029 appeared for IIT JEE. IIT JEE short listed 7,200 students. Out of it only 5,537 will get a chance to study in one of the prestigious IITs, IT-BHU or ISM. The IIT JEE result was poorest from IIT Kanpur, IIT Kharagpur, IIT Roorkee and IIT Guwahati Zone. These represent poor and backward states of the country including Bihar.

“I-Desire” is aimed at making up this gap. We are here to motivate students and to guide them by providing valuable suggestions. Since we have also gone through all this at some stage of our life, we can
benefit the students by sharing our experience and our response to the various problems we faced during our preparation for the IIT JEE.
IIT JEE Results 2007 Analysis

IIT Short Listed Appeared % Successful
Guwahati 137 15675 0.87
Kanpur 513 38849 1.32
Kharagpur 733 32693 2.24
Madras 1688 38192 4.42
Roorkee 496 26464 1.87
Bombay 2235 45246 4.94
Delhi 1398 45910 3.05
All India 7200 243029 2.96

Total Number of Seats in IITs + ISM + IT BHU = 5,537

The age limit for appearing in IIT JEE is 25 years. For candidates belonging to SC, ST and PD categories, the relaxed age limit is 30 years. Also, starting 2007, a candidate can take the JEE two times at the most. This has been done mainly to reduce stress on students and discourage the concept of “cram schools” — where students are made to memorize all types of possible exam questions. Furthermore, from 2007 onwards, students who are selected for admission to an IIT cannot attempt the examination again in the future. As above the national success rate is merely 2%, which is an obvious output for a competitive examination, like IIT JEE?

Now let us take a look of the situation in Bihar, particularly Patna. Every year more than fifteen thousand students appear in IIT JEE from here. The number of selected ones is a mere 60 or 70. The success rate is 0.4 %. It’s really alarming. The performance from other towns of Bihar is even worse. Why is it like this when some places boast of sending more than 60% students to IITs? The situation is pathetic and it really needs a wise thought.

IIT JEE Bihar- Fact

IIT JEE Bihar-  Fact

IIT JEE is unarguably one of the toughest entrance examinations on this earth. Cracking IIT JEE requires not only above average intelligence but also expert guidance and motivation. Having born and brought up in Bihar we are well aware of the fact that the Bihari students suffer a lot due to lack of proper guidance.One of the reasons is that  Bihar has been a socially backward and economically deprived State for decades now. Bihari parents unfortunately fail to provide their wards with the kind of guidance and level of economic, professional and moral support required for such a high level of competition. Due to this the Bihari students despite being as talented as their counterparts in other states usually fail to compete with them. This is vividly reflected in the statistics of the IIT JEE examination results held every year for entrance to most prestigious engineering institutes of the country.While the national selection rate is around 3%, the success rate in Bihar is less than 0.6%.

ROLE OF IITs IN SOCIAL TRANSFORMATION

ROLE OF IITs IN SOCIAL TRANSFORMATION

Patawa toli a small village in Gaya has a unique distinction to its name. It has sent more than 70 people to various IITs since 1980. In 2002 as many as seven students from this village were selected in IITJEE. At present some of the people of this toli have their children playing a leading role in some of the best MNCs in the world across the globe. In a recently held seminar at San Jones, United Sates to commemorate the 50 years of IIT system Bill Gates said “The IITs…..are incredible institutions that have changed the world.” This is really true. When people from Patwa toli can make it to that seminar why can’t we.

Controversy

TO WHO IT MAY CONCERN
News about I-DESIRE in media and the Controversy involved
This is to inform you that I-DESIRE has been repeatedly called a “Coaching Institute by various sections of Media. It is NOT a coaching institute. It is an organization founded by successful IITians both Students and Alumni and supported by SKDubey Foundation, NJ, USA. Its aim is to motivate, guide and inspire aspirants from Bihar the birthplace of our distinguished alumnus late Shri Satyendra Kumar Dubey. It was founded in 2002 and since then we have been conducting four day workshop once every year. Recently I-DESIRE has been embroiled in a controversy due to selfish interests of some people. The logic behind such controversy seems quite ill founded.

IIT-JEE MYTHS and REALITY

IIT-JEE MYTHS and REALITY

The Indian Institute of Technology Joint Entrance Examination (popularly known as IIT-JEE or just JEE) is an annual college entrance examination in India. A total of nine colleges use JEE as a sole criterion for admission to their undergraduate programs. The nine colleges include the seven Indian Institutes of Technology, IIT-BHU Varanasi, and ISM Dhanbad. It is conducted by the various IITs by a policy of rotation. It is the toughest engineering entrance exam in the world with a success rate of around 1 in 60. Candidates who successfully pass the IIT-JEE can apply for admission to the BTech (Bachelor of Technology), Dual Degree (Integrated Bachelor of Technology and Masters of Technology) and Integrated MSc (Master of Sciences) courses in the various institutes. Getting entrance into an IIT is often considered the pinnacle of achievement for a student of the science stream and the IITs along with the IISc attract most of the brightest students of the nation.
