Rahmani 30, a free residential coaching institute aimed at preparing Muslim boys from economically weak backgrounds, has proved its mettle once again with a total of its 118 students qualifying the JEE main test out of 137, on a pan India basis. Besides, only in Patna, 25 of its student out of 26 have successfully cleared the JEE main exam.
“The institute has outdone itself this year and there is a lot more to come. We were focused on making students qualify the exam so far but now we will concentrate on rankings,” Atul Singh who takes care of the operations division of the institute on a voluntary basis told Newsd.
Farhan Ali, a student of Rahmani 30, has ranked 72 in OBC category and 528 in general category after securing 290 marks out of a total of 360 JEE main test. Ali, who is a son of a farmer and hails from Araria district, has ranked 4th in Bihar. This is the first such feat for the institute that caters to underprivileged Muslim students.
Ali has indeed done well and brought lots of glories to his coach, family and his entire district. But the effort of Rahmani30 in bringing such talent forward cannot be ignored.
Established in 2007 with a small centre in Patna by Syed Muhammad Wali Rahmani with a constant support of former DGP and physicist Abhayanand, Rahmani 30 has expanded to pan India now. They operate coaching centres in almost all states and help deprived and poor Muslim students to come forward and fulfill their dreams.
While there are many coaching centres, what makes Rahmani 30 different from all is their unique approach towards students and the way they make them study to clear the exam.
“We don’t teach them, we make them learn about how to learn,” says Singh. “We follow different styles to make the students hit the books. We follow self-study along with practice approach. These approaches works well as it motivates them to perform well,” says Atul.
Unlike other coaching centres, we don’t rely on a selective pattern of studies or customised study materials; we tell the students to read entire books, he adds.
Except for Abhayanand who teaches Physics, Rahmani30 doesn’t have any full-time teachers. In fact, several teachers take classes on a voluntary basis and help the talent to grow further. Sometimes, its ex-students who have cleared the exams with a decent ranking, also guide the children.
“The coaching centres run on donations and so far there is no other financial support from any concerned organisations or government,” adds Atul.
Like all other institutes, Rahmani30 too has its own process of selecting the student who will be eligible for two years’ of training under the guidance of Abhayanand and other professionals. The selection process includes a written test along with an interview. On the basis of performance in the test, the students get divided into groups for further studies, states Atul.
So far, their purpose was to make students qualify for the exam but things are changing now. “The centre will be more focused on ranking now,” he adds.
