Informing about the state government’s move, Deputy Chief Manish Sisodia Minister said, as reported by India Today, “Since 2015, the number of students getting selected in IIT-JEE have risen from 40-50 to over 300 selections today. This has been the result of constant hard work of the teachers & students of Delhi govt schools. We thank Career Launcher & welcome them in building upon this success. Preparing for competitive examinations is the intended objective, but this exercise will also be intended towards developing a scientific outlook, through exposure to higher applications of science in daily life. I really hope the students make the most of it."
Expressing happiness over the initiative, Content Head of Career Launcher, Mohan Prasad, said, “Our team is proud to offer the Delhi Government its support in launching a much-needed course for its science stream students: the JEE and NEET Crash Course. Career Launcher can leverage its strong academic competency and online delivery platform to reach to over 5000 students and help them achieve their dreams. We are confident of doubling the number of their IIT JEE qualifiers with this initiative, which has already gone up from 40-50 to more than 300 with Delhi govt's efforts in education, especially since their own teachers and officers of the Directorate of Education are actively involved in the process.”
