“IIT JEE – BIHAR”
A group of students (IIT Kanpur and IIT Kharagpur) from Bihar who had undergone ordeal and misguidance during their preparation bravely decided to take the onus of improving the current education system of Bihar and imparting correct guidance to the students preparing for IIT JEE.
They decided to help the IIT JEE aspirants from their state by way of motivating them and providing them with certain tips and tricks.This would help them in their preparation of IIT JEE. This led to the birth of “I-DESIRE”.
The first step of I-DESIRE was a workshop in 2002, which got an overwhelming response from all the sections of the society, media, students and teachers. The workshop was attended by over 900 students. From there onwards, there was no looking back and this mission gained momentum each year, motivating and guiding the IIT JEE aspirants.
”I-DSESIRE” is now an organization of students and alumnus of different IITs hailing from Bihar. It has gained strength by support of the fellow IITians from our state. Ever since its birth, “I-DESIRE” has a single goal of motivating and guiding the IIT JEE aspirants from this state, so that, they can prepare themselves in a better way.
Our long term goal is the social and economic uplifting of this state. We strive to increase the number of successes in all competitive examinations including IIT JEE from Bihar. Education brings enlightenment. Increased success will create an atmosphere of hope. More would take courage to do the impossible.
This could be a huge step towards overall well being of our state and country as a whole. With the support we are getting, we have decided to organize more workshop to help more and more students to crack IIT JEE. Proper guidance and free study material will be provided to the deserving students. Best professors of Bihar have also joined hands with us to provide free coaching to the students who clear our workshop tests.
As per the survey we conduct every year after the workshop, the common problems faced by the IIT JEE aspirants are:
• Inefficient School Education
The schools in Bihar especially public schools have been not so successful in guiding students to the level of excellence required to be successful in examinations like IIT JEE. The numerical problems are not given the importance they deserve.
The schools do not deem it necessary to motivate the students for competitive examinations. Under the lack of proper guidance, inspiration and motivation students fail to get the kind of orientation and thrust required for the competitive examinations. Under these circumstances students tend to get the impression that IIT JEE is nearly an impossible nut to crack and only the school admission can’t guarantee them a success at IIT JEE.
The truth however is that if a student studies properly at school and complete his syllabus in time, they have a hug chance of cracking IIT JEE. IIT JEE is well aware of this situation and is working continuously to improve the situation. The erratic pattern of IIT JEE is a testimony to this. In 2007 IIT JEE simplified the questions so that even a High School student with good understanding of the subject can solve it. The results were encouraging.
Lots of students who did not go to any coaching were successful. Generally most students resort to private coaching to get out of this situation, which is too expensive for most. With efforts of IIT JEE this might change a bit.
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%.
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.
