Students of Patna’s Super 30 have done it again in the IIT-JEE (Advanced) entrance test. As many as 25 students of mathematician Anand Kumar’s Super 30 cracked the prestigious exam.
Also, former DGP Abhayanand’s Rahmani 30, which is exclusively for Muslims, had 15 achievers out of 21 aspirants. Another one of his batches, Magadh 30, saw six out of 17 students overcoming the hurdle.

One such student of Kumar is Rahul Prajapati. A son of a mason from Hazaribagh, Prajapati, who bagged the 1,316th rank, said, “My ultimate dream is to become an IAS officer. I have seen poverty from close quarters and my father works as a daily wager to support us”.
Against all odds, majority of the successful students are scribbling their success stories of chasing their dreams with passion. Like Neeraj Jha, from Madhubani, is a son of a taxi driver and has given a pleasant surprise to his mentor Kumar by securing the 1,217th rank.
Jha said, “The first thing that comes to my mind is that after a few years I will be able to support my family financially”.
And behind these winners, the man, Kumar, who stands tall, said: “It has been a gratifying experience year after year. This success is the victory of hopes of all those parents who live to see and feel these moments.”
Rahmani 30’s 15 successful Muslim students have also come from rural and semi-urban background and are children of small-time farmers and petty workers.
Abhayanand, another proud mentor, said: “While Rahmani 30 is a revelation in Bihar and encourages us to concentrate more on minority boys, the success of 23 Jodhpur students —mostly from deserts — is also very satisfying. Taking IIT dream to these far-flung places is a real success”.
Besides these, Abhayanand’s Kanpur centre has 50 successful students, Jodhpur has 23, Ghaziabad saw 21 winners, Jammu and Kashmir offered three successful candidates, while northeast churned out 22 achievers from four centres.
