Great news for the Delhi residents as admission forms for nursery admissions will be available in Delhi. Kids aged 6 and below are eligible for admissions and the forms will be available from 29th November. In Delhi , every year the private schools issue admission forms for their nest session. This year the entire admission process starts 15 days earlier as compared to the last year. the new arrangement has been designed so that there are no hassles and issues for the schools and the parents.

The process starts, after your buying admission form for INR 25,many schools allows you to apply online and all  you need to submit the print of registration form along with self attested necessary documents  and  expected to submit it on or  before 27th December with all necessary documents as required. If you desire to avail the prospectus of the school you can buy it after spending additional amount of INR 100. However, there is no compulsion to buy the prospectus.

Delhi, has some 1,850 private schools in which there are 1.5 lakh seats to be filled. The admissions can be sought in classes Nursery, K.G, and One. All the schools have 20% seats reserved for the management quota. Around 25% of the seats is reserved for EWS (Economically Weaker Sections) and DG (Disadvantaged Group). The Delhi Government conducts lottery to fill the seats reserved for EWS and DG. The remaining 55% seats are for the general masses and the admissions in these seats are done as per a fixed criterion.

Each school follows a different pattern to take admission. The only similar pattern is that all the schools give points out 100 on specific criterion depending on which the admissions are conducted. Of this the most important criterion is the distance between the school and the house of candidate. Lesser the distance between the two, greater the points, and therefore stronger chances for admission. Points are also granted if there are siblings of the candidate already studying in the school. If there are siblings the points are greater and so are the chances of admission. After this there are points for alumni, single child, girl child, staff child and a few more. Depending on the scores received the child is granted admissions in the school.

For example, in Delhi there is a school in Mayur Phase 1, The Alcone International School, this school grants 25 to 45 points for the neighborhood criterion, 25 points for siblings, 15% for staff kids, 10% for single parents, and 5% for alumni. Similarly Mayur Phase 2 has a school Bal BHawan Public School, this school has decided to 60 points out of 100 for sibling/ staff child/ alumni. For the neighborhood criterion they have 40 points, the proximity to location should be 6km and if the school is at 10 to 12 km distance the points given is 20. Doon School from Paschim Vihar has 70 points for kids coming from a distance of 1 km or less. They have allotted 10 points for alumni and 5 for girl child and another 5 for single parents. Don Bosco School located in the Alonanda locality gives 35 points for Catholic Christians, 35 points for neighborhood, 20 points for sibling and alumni has 10 points. Caramel Convent from Chanakya Nagri has 20 points for Catholic Christians, 20 points for sibling, 10- 10 points for alumni and staff kids. The Mothers’ International located in the Shree Aurbindo Marg has 40 points for neighborhood, 30 points for sibling, 20 points for alumni.
