Society: A Brief History
Established in 1986, Iqra Education Society began its journey renting
few rooms of a closed corporation school and with 40 students
belonging to weaker section of the society. It was
the time when such people could hardly get an opportunity to learn. Iqra provided them an opportunity and soon became the most sought
after educational campus for everyone in Jalgaon.
Today, Iqra hosts a chain of educational institution at Iqra Nagar -
its state of the art education hub. The campus includes, besides a B.Ed.
College, BUMS College, and Urdu Medium High School & Jr College, a
residential school also. Iqra Public School is perhaps the only
residential school in the entire country that is based on Urdu medium.
Come January and the biggest challenge that the parents of the +10
students face is to keep them at ease so that they not only crack
the SSC exams without much difficulty but also score more in the
coveted exams. Iqra Education Society of Jalgaon has come out with
a unique and effective way to look at both. On one hand, Iqra
trains the talented students so that they score more, and on the
other, it helps the students who are weak in studies to
comfortably crack the exams.
Iqra Education Society, which runs a chain of Education centres in
Jalgaon, is since last four years selecting five potential toppers
from the high schools under it and engages them for a week-long
special training session. During this extensive coaching, the
selected students are given important tips on scoring more in the
“The idea is to make these potential toppers realise the
unintentional mistakes that may result in loosing valuable marks.
For, students, very often, loose marks when they correctly write
descriptive answers and solve maths paper but forget important
points or miss few steps”, says Abdul Karim Salar, the
Founder-Chairman of Iqra Education Society and the brain behind
the entire idea.
“We hire expert teachers having good experience in moderating SSC
answer-sheets and request them to teach our students to overcome
this shortcoming”, he added.
“As these students are top ranking, every single mark is important
for them. Hence, they are also given valuable tips for writing the
answer-sheets in a way that can earn them few extra marks”, says
Principal of Iqra High School Haroon Bashir.
Along with this, Iqra has also designed special syllabus for the
students, who are very weak in studies and may face failure in the
exams. Titled as Hum Honge Kamyaab, Iqra enrols all weak
students of its institutions for this special training, boost
their confidence and teach them how to score at least the passing
“The students, who are very weak in studies are afraid of exams.
Due to lack of confidence they may even fail. For such students,
we take the help of counsellor, who uses latest techniques to
boost their confidence level and helps them get rid of exam fear”,
“In addition to this, we help the students study a syllabus
specially designed keeping in mind their mental level and enough
to score more than 50% marks – more than the passing percentage
and the minimum for further admissions”, he added.
The system, which certainly has all the appeal for others to
replicate, has paid Iqra rich dividend and its results since then
have dramatically improved. Riding high on its innovative efforts,
Iqra, which registered 99% results in last four exams, is now
eying for the 100% mark in this year’s exams scheduled for later
in the month.
