CBSE's 'Udaan': About 135 girls crack IIT JEE entrance exam The CBSE 'Udaan' scheme is limited for students from families with an annual income of less than Rs 6 lakh.

CBSE's Udaan programme for girls to excel their career & About 135 Girls crack ITT JEE Entrance exam.

With the motive to prepare girls for admission in premier engineering institutions of India based on merit, the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) few years back launched a unique programme 'Udaan', a step to help young female cadre excel in career with engineering to contribute in future building of India.

The programme mainly aims at giving every possible access to the disadvantaged sections of the society in terms of education.

Udaan, through an online medium, assists the girl students in Class 11 and Class 12 and provide them with a comprehensive platform to pursue higher education in engineering.

This year, Udaan has helped 135 girl students to clear the Joint Entrance Examination (JEE)-Mains for admission in engineering colleges.

 

More on the scheme:

  • With a vision of "New India", the scheme assists girl students with overall score of 70 per cent or above, and 80 per cent in science and mathematics stream by providing them with free of cost tutorials, mentoring support, lectures and study material to prepare for engineering entrance examinations
  • Moreover, this scheme enables students with virtual contact classes organised in 60 designated cities
  • Also, helpline services are provided for doubt clarification and monitoring student learning

Further, the scheme is limited for students from families with an annual income of less than Rs 6 lakh.

Here's what CBSE Chairman R K Chaturvedi said:

"The project motivates meritorious girls towards further study of science and mathematics instead of soft subjects, it hand holds them and provides necessary training. "The scheme relies on latest technology which gives ease of learning to a girl student without having to step out of her home on a daily basis. The study materials are pre-loaded on tablets and made convenient with mobile applications," said CBSE chairman R K Chaturvedi in a recent PTI report.

More on the report:

According to data provided by CBSE, last year, 143 girls cleared the JEE-Mains exam with the help of the 'Udaan' initiative.

"It has been seen that the participation of girl students in engineering entrance examinations as compared to boys is much lower. More than 75% of the registered candidates are boys. The idea is to mainstream girl students and prepare them for future leadership roles by removing social, economic or cultural constraints," Chaturvedi added.
