Known for providing free coaching and assistance to underprivileged students, Bihar's Super 30 is now a case study at the University of East London.

The venture that helps underprivileged students crack entrance exams of IITs has been selected as one of the three cases studies from India by the British varsity in partnership with Mumbai-based Tata Institute of Social Sciences (TISS).

The project, supported by the British Council under the UK-India Education and Research Initiative (UKIERI), is aimed at mapping social innovation strategies in overcoming multiple deprivations in select locations in India and Britain, said Anand Kumar, founder-director of Super 30 as per media reports.

Anand said the specific objectives of the study include identification of varied aspects of "deprivation and un-freedoms" which limit the potentials of people coming from deprived socio-economic background.

As part of the study, a team of researchers interviewed founder of Super 30 Anand Kumar and successful students of Super 30 in order to capture their experience in life.
