Breaking the monotonous schedule of campus life, PEC University of Technology students will now facilitate the brightest of government school students in the city to crack a prestigious talent search exam. The UT education department along with its National Service Scheme (NSS) wing and UT's higher education department have come up with a plan wherein they have offered PEC's NSS students to bring down the failure rate in clearing the National Talent Search Exam (NTSE) among government school students.
This national-level scholarship programme is organized by the NCERT each year. "It was found that school teachers failed in preparing students for the exam and it was felt that PEC students were the most suitable for teaching school kids, particularly for the mental ability part of this scholarship exam," said Chanchal Singh, deputy director (school education), UT education department. The top five 'brightest students' from class IX in all government colleges will be chosen by their respective schools and the students will be tutored by PEC students. "We have designed a plan in which PEC students will teach these students twice a week from 3 to 4.00 pm after school. Class IX students will be prepared for a span of six months and they will appear in the exam once they enter the next class," said an official of the UT NSS wing. UT officials said that the success rate of government students cracking the NTSE exam was on the decline and hence this plan. Singh said that the project will commence on 13th August. Meanwhile PEC students are in the process of forming a team for this mission. "We will seek guidance from the PEC director," said Sushant Sameer, NSS programme coordinator at PEC.
