Kolkata: 2018 has been a successful year for Al-Ameen Mission, a residential minority education institution with a difference headquartered in Howrah, neighbouring district of Kolkata, West Bengal but it has branches across West Bengal and Bihar. After its remarkable success in 10th and 12th state board exams, the Mission has made a great success in National Eligibility Cum Entrance Test (NEET). Two Al Ameen Mission students ranked amongst the top 10 in an independent state ranking from NEET recently published by the State Government of West Bengal.
There was tension amongst students when Central Government proposed a single national test to qualify MBBS especially in Bengal, Tamil Nadu and other states most of which had their state independent Joint Entrance Examinations.
However, students of Al Ameen Mission were always confident and patient as they knew that the institution is going to take care of the pain and transition required to match a national level competition like NEET. But more importantly, they are always ready to take on any such examinations that come on their way to achieve their dreams. Al Ameen Mission is not great because of outstanding results achieved by its students in examinations, it is because the Mission sparks a dream in each one of its students.
Like every year, in 2018 too, 423 students (328 boys and 95 girls) qualified NEET and ranked within 50,000. Most of them come from from economically needy and underprivileged families of Bengal. In a recently released independent ranking by West Bengal, two students – Mohammad Sinan Hammam Miya and Shaikh Akibuddin came in the Top 10. Hammam ranked 3rd in the state ranking with All India Test rank of 260.
Akibuddin ranked 8th and All India Test Rank of 508. Sahin Sultana is another girl from Al Ameen Mission who secured an All India rank 90 and came second in the state ranking amongst physically challenged.
Mr M NURUL ISLAM, the General Secretary and soul of this ‘Great Institution and Vision’ is very happy with the remarkable achievements of his students.
Hammam Miya is a son of a High School teacher Mohammad Shah Alam, admitted to Mission in class XI and scored 95.8% in Higher Secondary. Sheikh Akibuddin joined the Mission in fifth grade. Coming from the economically underprivileged background, Mission extended its support to help him pursue his dream in Medical.
There are many students who brought outstanding success. Safiul Alam ranked AIR-975 followed by Md. Sajid Shaikh (AIR-1120), Nayem Shaikh (AIR-1314), and Arifa Khatun (AIR-1877) etc. In All India Test, 58 Al Ameen students ranked within 1000 and 423 ranked within 50,000. Most importantly, 129 out of these 423 students who qualified NEET belong to economically underprivileged families and studied in Mission from Zakat funds. Al Ameen has also been providing non-residential coaching to meritorious students from all communities including Scheduled Caste (SC), Schedule Tribe (ST) and other communities.
With its noteworthy success in Secondary, Higher Secondary, Engineering and Medical, the Mission has been doing wonderfully in state Public Service Commission examinations – West Bengal Civil Services. In 2018, around 123 candidates have appeared in the WBCS Preliminary from Al Ameen Mission Coaching Centre of which 67 have qualified for the mains. Till date, 57 Al Ameen alumni are currently working at Officer Level in various state government posts under Group A, Group B and Group C, etc.
