Government college students face difficulty without JEE, NEET coaching
This year the Board of Intermediate Education (BIE) is unable to offer special coaching classes for students who are appearing for the JEE, EAMCET and NEET exams.
Hyderabad: Depriving thousands of government junior college students of the opportunity to appear in competitive exams, the Board of Intermediate Education (BIE) has not offered special coaching classes for students who are appearing for the JEE, EAMCET and NEET exams.
The board, which had previously failed to implement its plan to establish a college of excellence and provide training to students throughout the year, has not carried out the 40-day intensive crash courses, which were organized during the summer season in the last two years.
"Looks like officials are least bothered to conduct coaching classes for students. This is despite the fact that these classes are yielding positive results. Last year too, many students managed to get seats in engineering, agriculture and pharmacy colleges after attending these classes," said P Madhu Sudhan Reddy, president, Telangana Government Junior Lecturers Association.
He said that last year, professors volunteered to work without pay for the benefit of the students. "This year too, we are ready to organize classes. But it is too late now as it is too late to contact students who are staying in remote areas, "he added.
Board officials, meanwhile, said they plan to hold classes and added that a notice will be released in a couple of days. "We have shortlisted a few students and summer classes will be conducted in all 10 districts for the selected students. Lecturers are not aware of the plan yet," said a highly placed source from the BIE.
The official also said that the two camps, one for boys and girls, will be established at the district headquarters and classes will be held in virtual mode.
"A total of 20 centres will be functional and each centre will accommodate 50 students. Classes will be streamed from Hyderabad to all the centres," said the official.
