South Korean student Jaen Hyun Kim from Seoul is pursuing B. Tech in Biotechnology from IIT Delhi and is one of the first foreign students of IIT. According to the 20-year old, cracking IIT is a big deal in Korea. The education system back there is very different from the one taught and practiced in India.
Kim refers to India as his second home; he decided to do his schooling from India after completing class 6th in Seoul. This young IITian came to India to seek guidance and coaching for admission in IIT (Indian Institute of Technology). He says that cracking JEE Advanced is considered a Herculean task as there is no system of negative marking like there is in JEE Advanced which makes it tough for candidates to score well.

Kim says, “Initially I found it difficult to solve subjective question papers in schools here as back in Korea there are only objective question papers.” In the early stages he found it challenging to solve the question papers but got used to it. Most students like him who want to study in reputed institutions like IIT are only left with the option of leaving their country, shift to India and prepare for JEE Main and Advanced in coaching institutes. That’s a lot hard work and struggle you see?
The interview with Kim has made it absolutely evident for Indian students to see how privileged they are in terms of the education system. Neither do they have to face hardships of finding coaching institutes nor do they have to learn any language skill additionally.
