Trichy district administration along with the district chief education office signed an MoU with the teaching club of NIT Trichy – IGNITTE where NIT students train students from government schools to crack JEE – Main to get admission to centrally funded technical institutions.
The test was conducted at E R higher secondary school by the office of the chief education officer (CEO) and IGNITTE team.
A total of 35 students will be selected for the free weekend residential training in NIT Trichy campus.
“By staying in NIT Trichy campus and getting an opportunity to see the facilities in the institutions will kindle an interest among these students to pursue their engineering in such institutions and they will take up JEE seriously,” he said.
While IGNITTE team had planned to select 15 students for the training, it has been decided to induct at least 35 students to give opportunity to more number of students. Last year two students trained by IGNITTE team for JEE made it to NIT Trichy to pursue B Tech.
