Thirty unprivileged students of Bihar mostly belonging from farmer/daily wage worker’s families with limited resources from different districts, are finally visiting an IIT campus.
NLCEE (National Level Common Entrance Examination) had conducted a talent hunt exam across all the districts of Bihar on 21st of August, 2022 at around 280 exam centres in which more than 1.3 Lakh students from class 9th to Graduation participated.
Organized by IITians, NITians, and IIM grads, NLCEE is a National Level Common Entrance Examination owned and administered by Edvizo primarily to search talented candidates, provide recognition and exposure, and extend maximum support to the unprivileged and deserved through scholarships, so that more and more students can fulfill their dream of a better education.
30 students, whose score was in the top 1% of the total participation in NLCEE 2022, have received a chance to visit IIT Guwahati for a 4-day’s FREE Educational Trip. “We are very proud of our students who have been shortlisted for this trip. The journey will be path-breaking as it will give them a high level of exposure. Such experiences will encourage the students in the holistic development of their careers and personalities. The trip to IIT-Guwahati will motivate students to pursue careers in science and technology and give them a first-hand experience of how the technology and teaching at IIT-Guwahati works.” Suman Kumar Gunjan, Central Coordinator of NLCEE told.
The 4 day tour will give students an enriching experience of how this reputed engineering college functions. There will be projects, department & lab visits, live demonstrations and simulations, group discussions and other activities which will further help students to dig deeper in the concepts.
These students belong to middle or lower-middle income class families, some of them studying in government schools, very hardly get a tution/coaching or any other support, mostly belonging from farmer/daily wage worker’s families, will get this exposure and experience of a lifetime. Team NLCEE hopes and aspires that this exposure would help these students achieve their dream jobs and motivate them for future planning.
