New Delhi’s private schools in their recent announcement regarding nursery admissions highlighted the significance of proximity as a primary factor, accruing the maximum points for applicants. The registration process for nursery, KG, and Class I seats for the general category commences on Thursday and concludes on December 15.
Notably, the majority of schools have opted for an online registration process, planning to unveil the first list of admissions on January 12, 2024. However, for 25% of seats allotted to economically disadvantaged sections, the Directorate of Education conducts centralized online admissions.
The admission procedure follows a point-based system that varies across schools. For instance, the allocation for the criterion of locality differs significantly, with Amity International School granting 30 points for proximity while The Indian School allots a substantial 60 points. Furthermore, Delhi Public School, Mathura Road, intricately divides its points system, offering 70 points to applicants residing within a 10km radius and 60 points for those residing between 10-12km, determined via automatic distance calculation using Google Maps linked to the registration form.
Sibling and alumni connections play a pivotal role in admissions across most schools, attracting point allocations ranging between 10 to 30. Some institutions consider additional factors such as firstborn status, gender (girl child), and single-parent families in their point allotments. For instance, MM Public School divides its 100 points, dedicating 50 to locality, 20 to the girl child, 10 to the firstborn, and 10 to alumni parents.
