Patnas overachieving Super 30 faces serious competition from a school in Neyveli in Tamil Nadu. One of every four students who pass out of the Jawahar Higher Secondary School (JHSS), Neyveli, makes it to the premier Indian Institutes of Technology. It is unlikely to have anything to do with the lignite in the soil, but the school has consistently produced bright sparks since it opened in 2005. Sixty-eight of the 236 students who passed out of JHSS in the past six years have joined IITs. Sixteen of 71 students aced the IITs Joint Entrance Examination (JEE) in 2011. This academic year, the CBSE School did one better, with 25 of 63 students, including nine girls, or one in every three, making it to the IITs.
IIT Cradle: 68 of 236 students of the Jawahar Higher Secondary School, which was started in 2005, has made it to various IITs in the country. The school runs an integrated JEE coaching centre and guest lecturers are invited occasionally Students from the school have also joined the National Institute of Technology and BITS-Pilani Secret of schools success is its JEE coaching centre: The secret to the schools success is its integrated JEE coaching centre, which is run by the Neyveli Telugu Samithi (NTS). It is probably no coincidence that Andhra Pradesh has among the highest success rates in the extremely competitive entrance exam. A committee formed by the Samithi has experts who review the training at the coaching centre and periodically invite teachers from across the country for guest sessions. Seventeen students this year joined the IITs in Chennai, Roorkee, Kharagpur and Jaipur, while others opted for the National Institute of Technology (NIT) and the Birla Institute of Technology and Science (BITS), Pilani. Neyveli topper G. Abhiram got the 601 rank in the country in the JEE and G. Abeynaya, who came second in Neyveli, got the 1,572nd rank. Five of the 22 girls from Tamil Nadu who cleared the JEE last year were from JHSS. Abhiram, who bagged a national talent search examination (NTSE) scholarship, has joined the electrical engineering course at IIT-Madras. Abhiram decided to join an IIT when he was in Class 8. He also bagged an NTSE scholarship that year, said his father, S.Gnanasambandam, chief manager at NLC. The school played a major role in training him and other successful students. Abeynaya, who has chosen to study chemical engineering in IIT-Madras, also credited her teachers with her success, saying they prepared her batch excellently for both the CBSE examinations and the IIT-JEE.
