Kalinga Bharati Residential College shines in the +2 performance: top three in science and topper in commerce are from this college

The website of this college is http://www.kalingabharati.org/. This year students from this college have done extremely well in +2 results. Only BJB College’s performance is close to them. While earlier it used to be a contest between BJB and Ravenshaw, this year Ravenshaw has bitten dust and its place has been taken by this college.

In particular its performance in +2 is as follows:

Upon further browsing their web pages I am of the opinion that this college will be a trendsetter and pioneer in Odisha. Just look at their faculty listed at http://www.kalingabharati.org/FACULTY_LIST.HTM.

Department Faculty’s name Qualification

Ms. Narmada Satpathy M.A. (English)
     
Department of Oriya Dr. jatadhari Mohapatra M.A., Ph.D
Ms. Manorama Mohapatra M.A. (Oriya)
   

Based on this faculty I am going to go out on a limb and predict that this year there will be at least 10 students from this college in the IIT JEE top 1000.

I hope some of the other private +2 colleges will immediately copy from this college and assemble a similar faculty and beat Kota at its own game and send more Orissans to IIT and other top institutions.


As per Dharitri the +2 Science topper from Kalinga Bharati, Kiity Jain (a girl) is from Khariar in Nuapada district and the +2 Commerce topper Bhabani Acharya (also a girl) is from Semiliguda in Koraput.

There are 53 students in the above list. The top junior colleges/schools from where these students come are:

  • 16 are from KBR College Cuttack, including the topper and 3 from the top 2 ranks
  • FM College Balasore (ranks 2, 17, 19, 19)
  • 24 are from BJB College Bhubaneswar, but none from the top 2 ranks
  • Irodov College Bhubaneswar  (rank 11)
  • Royal College Bhubaneswar (ranks 13, 19)
  • Ravenshaw Junior College Cuttack (ranks 15 )
  • Saraswati Vidya Mandir Nilakanthanagar Berhampur (rank 15, 18)
  • Vikash Junior College Baragarh (ranks 17, 19)
  • Jupiter +2 Science College (rank 19)

The performance of KBR College (Pira Bazar, Jagatpur, Cuttack) is extremely impressive. (Before today, I had not heard of it.) the performance of the older colleges, especially Ravenshaw is disappointing. Except BJB, Ravenshaw and FM, none of the other older colleges (such as Khallikote College, SCS College, GM Junior College, Govt. College Rourkela, RD Women’s college, Sailabala Women’s college etc.) are in the above list.

My guess is that there is not much teaching going on in the traditional colleges and the performance in BJB is perhaps only due to the top students going in there.
