Government to offer study material to IIT aspirants:
“Dude!! Go for Coaching. What the hell are you doing here? Without coaching how you can ever dream of entering into that Holy place” reaction of a person to IIT aspirants.
Gone will be those days when you have to seek advice from hundreds of students regarding admission to the coaching institutes whether or not the particular coaching institute provides you with the best coaching for the most prestigious exam of India i.e. JEE and the parents have to think about the budget that they have to bear for the coaching.
Someone wise perfectly quoted “It’s never too late” when the government finally woke up and took the right step towards curbing the menace of coaching institutes who rake in moolah for preparation from IIT aspirants.
If you are amongst the crowd who is very devoted and adamant to sail among the most sought prestigious Engineering universities (IITs) of the world without thinking about emptying your pocket, then here’s some good news for you all. The Indian government is looking forward to launch its ambitious project of providing coaching materials and lectures for preparation at your doorstep, which is most likely to roll out in the month of August.
About the Project
The move came amidst the growing anxiety over the entry for the premier institutions and growing number of suicides among those who fail to make it to the institutions. The government through this move wants to provide the motivation of come one, come all for all i.e. equal opportunities to all IIT aspirants and especially to those who cannot afford to go to coaching institute.
The government will be launching the IITPAL portal and mobile app for thr IIT aspirants. The study material will be made freely available through various media channels like YouTube and three free-to-air TV channels which will be launched by Doordarshan. Some of the best academicians, IIT faculty members will give video lectures. The Massive Online Open Courses (MOOC) platform Swayam will be available in 13 languages so that the students who are from various state boards and studying in regional languages find it easy to understand. There would also be live content streaming for four hours daily over internet platforms and DTH.Here
The salient features of this project will also include:
- Access to 50 years of IIT entrance examination papers through the portal / app.
- JEE question paper conforms to the 12th standard syllabus only.
- Conducting Regular assignments and tests.
- Launching of 8 a.m to 8 p.m helpline to facilitate the queries of students.
- Motivation and guidance by Top 100 JEE rankers
The government has to work hard towards this project as they have to gain the trust among the students community as people follow the trend i.e. in this context Coaching Institutions, as they don’t want to take the risk of opting for a new change.
Having said that, this ambitious project if implemented successfully will not only root out the coaching institutions who are consuming lakhs of money but will also reduce the stress among the students community because at present it has become difficult even for a meritorious student to enter IIT without going to coaching institutes. The students at the same time can also concentrate on their 12th Boards, which coaching institutions often neglect and therefore the student also, which leads them to low score in board examination.
Eagerly waiting for the day when I’ll switch ON the Television and will see a superb lecture for IIT preparation going on!!
Last but not the least- These Coaching institutions just acts as the catalyst. What matters is the person’s calibre and perseverance for a achieving his dreams that drive him/her and lets him/her taste the sweetness of Success in life.
HOPE i.e. Hold On, Pain Ends is what makes a person strong !!
All the best!
