New Delhi: The MS Education Academy in Hyderabad has decided to provide admission for free at its 13 junior colleges [11th,+12th] and four degree colleges to students who have been orphaned by Covid-19.
”We are offering free education to Covid orphans as they have suffered an expected loss. Many of them tend to quit education and do jobs. So we believe it is our duty to hold their interest in education,” MS Education Academy chairperson Mohammad Lateef Khan said in a phone interview with this correspondent.
The process for admission at these institutes has started. A big number of admission seekers are approaching the management.
1400 orphan students are already studying at its colleges by paying reduced fees. They have to pay one-third of their tuition fees only.
Students enrolled at colleges of the MS Academy are offered special facilities to prepare for competitive exams.
Their students have performed remarkably well in previously held competitive exams. 153 of them cleared NEET exam and 17 of them were selected for admission to Indian Institutes of Technology (IIT) in 2020.
