Scholar Support Programme (SSP)

  6x4 1 copy (6)

The programme offers personalised additional instructional sessions of 60 hours each in Semesters 1 & 2 to support 50 academically backward students. Six teachers specialised in six areas of knowledge and a coordinator are involved in the successful implementation of the programme. The extra coaching has proved to be highly beneficial to the weaker students who aspire to be successful in life. The state government is gearing up to implement the programme in a more efficient way in 2013-14.
