TIRUCHY: The Super 30 concept is a brainchild of the then district collector Darez Ahamed who started the programme after sensing poor performance by the students in the board exams.
The Super 30 scheme was launched in July 2013, wherein the first three rank holders of each school will be picked and provided with residential coaching by subject experts during class hours. The chosen students will undergo a merit test out of which 30 boys and 30 girls will be selected. “Once the process is completed, they would be taken to the government hostels where they would be provided free accommodation, food, medical facilities and even field visits. They can clarify their doubts on any subject at any time”, said Jayaraman, the founder coordinator of Super 30.
Jayaraman said, the class 11 students will be selected for the programme, and they would undergo training for two years and prepare for class 12. After their board exams, these students would undergo training for NEET and JEE.
He said that the Super 30 would be launched in 15 more districts by this academic year and can expect its expansion across all the districts by next year.
