Mumbai: A total of 24 students of Rahmani 30, Rahmani Wave and MS Academy-Rahmani 30 Hyderabad have cracked the 2015 JEE Advanced results of which were declared today.
After cracking this highly competitive test, all these students have now become eligible for admission to Indian Institute of Technology (IITs), considered as India's top notch engineering institutions.
Among those who cracked the test include 15 out of the total 22 students of Rahmani-30 Patna, 04 of the total 08 students of Rahmani Wave, Patna and 05 students of the total 15 students who appeared through MS Academy-Rahmani 30 Hyderabad free coaching centre.
Besides these students who cracked the exam in their first attempt, 06 Rahmani 30 students who could not pass the exam in their earlier attempt have also cracked the 2015 IIT JEE Advanced.
Launched in 2010 on the pattern of Super 30, Rahmani Foundation is running free coaching classes for poor students of the Muslim community. The propgram was first launched in Patna, and later extended to the cities like Mumbai and Hyderabad.
Since Mumbai centre is launched a year ago, no student from this centre has so far appeared for the IIT-JEE.
Rahmani Wave was launched in July 2013 to accommodate the students who failed Rahmani-30 entrance test, but had enough talent to crack the IIT JEE.
The result has once again underlined the fact that, with proper opportunity, even students from poor families can reach the prestigious IITs.
This year, the pattern for JEE was changed unexpectedly, and students complained about the excessive negative marking. Although both the papers were supposed to carry 180 marks, the pattern was altered without any notice.
Paper I consisted of 262 questions and Paper II carried 240 questions. Also, the candidates found most of the questions under the Mathematics and Physics sections time consuming.
The new negative marking scheme, under which two negative marks will be awarded for wrong answers, was another shock to the students who took the exam last month.
After learning that fewer students could cross the bar this year, the JEE (Advanced) board has lowered the qualifying marks criteria for admission in the IITs.
The JEE Advanced was conducted on May 24. Approximately 1.5 lakh students had registered for the competitive exam - compulsory for admission to country's premium engineering colleges Indian Institute of Technology (IIT), and about 1.25 lakh appeared for it.
