IIT results (advanced) were announced on June 11. Like each year, this time, too, all the students from Anand Kumar’s Super 30 batch cleared the entrance examination.
Inspired from this Super 3o batch, the Indian Army had formed a Super-40 batch to train Kashmiri students for IIT-JEE. Well, the good news is that nine students from this batch have cleared the IIT-JEE advanced paper.
