lmost ev­ery par­ent wor­ries re­gard­ing their chil­dren's

A ad­mis­sion in a good school. Pro­ce­dures are dif­fer­ent, styles of tak­ing in pupils are dif­fer­ent. Start­ing from fill­ing up of ap­pli­ca­tion forms, writ­ten test, fol­lowed by per­sonal in­ter­view, are the com­mon struc­ture of ad­mis­sion in any school in Kolkata. How­ever, in or­der to get your child ad­mit­ted in a good school you must plan and work ac­cord­ingly one year ad­vance. Here come a few de­tails of ad­mis­sion of a num­ber of re­puted schools in the city.

La Mar­tiniere for Girls (LMG) will start dis­tribut­ing forms for ad­mis­sion in the lower nurs­ery level from De­cem­ber 3rd. How­ever there is lit­tle scope for ad­mis­sion in class XI as most of the in-house stu­dents are ad­mit­ted in XI stan­dard. Though a few non-LMG stu­dents are also ad­mit­ted on the ba­sis of merit as well.

At Delhi Pub­lic School, Ruby Park, ad­mis­sion forms for both ju­nior and high school will be dis­trib­uted from the sec­ond week of De­cem­ber. Af­ter submission of forms stu­dents are called upon for writ­ten as­sess­ment test. List of se­lected can­di­dates of this test is pub­lished on next day of the test. The fi­nal se­lec­tion takes place only af­ter the per­sonal in­ter­view.

You have to go for a reg­is­tra­tion first if you want to ad­mit your child to Laxmi­pat Sing­ha­nia Academy. Reg­is­tra­tions open gen­er­ally in Au­gust and Septem­ber. More than 100 va­can­cies are there both in the pre school and class I sec­tions. Reg­is­tra­tion forms are pro­vided along with the prospec­tus. Guardians are sup­posed to fill the reg­is­tra­tion forms com­pletely and sub­mit it along with all the re­quired doc­u­ments. Each ap­pli­cant is pro­vided with an ad­mit card or re­ceipt on which the meet­ing sched­ule is men­tioned. In Septem­ber-Oc­to­ber the in­ter­view ses­sions are car­ried out for Pre School and class I. April to March is the aca­demic ses­sion of this school.

Rosita Chris­tine, former prin­ci­pal of St. John's Dioce­san For Girls pro­vided a few tips to the par­ents look­ing for ad­mis­sion cur­rently. "We start is­su­ing forms from Septem­ber. The ses­sion start from Jan­uary 15 and there­fore all the pro­ce­dures are done by De­cem­ber 15. The ori­en­ta­tion pro­gram starts only af­ter the ad­mis­sion is com­pleted. Three-year-old stu­dents are ad­mit­ted in the lower nurs­ery sec­tion. In our in­ter­ac­tion process with par­ents along with their kids, we try to know what type of fam­ily back­ground the child is hav­ing, na­ture of fam­ily bonds and so forth. We also in­form the par­ents about the code of con­duct of our school in that in­ter­ac­tion ses­sion," said Chris­tine. There are 200 seats in our lower nurs­ery sec­tion at St John's Dioce­san For Girls.

Chil­dren are ad­mit­ted to South Point School in classes Nurs­ery, I and II at the age of 3 and 4 years re­spec­tively. The gen­eral pub­lic is in­formed through ad­ver­tise­ments in news­pa­pers, school no­tice board and school web­site dur­ing the month of June-July. Stu­dents are se­lected ran­domly with­out any screen­ing of chil­dren and their par­ents. On the ba­sis of re­spec­tive va­can­cies stu­dents are ad­mit­ted in class V. There­fore par­ents are sup­posed to check the school no­tice board reg­u­larly. Sep­a­rate ori­en­ta­tion pro­gram for par­ents of nurs­ery tod­dlers is ob­served at South Point School.

Ju­lian Day School is car­ry­ing on with their ad­mis­sion process for nurs­ery to class IX. "The ad­mis­sion process has started in end of Septem­ber and will go on as long as there are va­can­cies in dif­fer­ent classes. We take four year old stu­dents in nurs­ery and in­for­mal in­ter­view ses­sions are ar­ranged for re­cruit­ing them. But for ad­mis­sion in higher classes we con­duct writ­ten test and viva-voce," said Ger­rad Gomes, prin­ci­pal of Ju­lian Day School.

Sev­eral par­ents are opt­ing for in­ter­na­tional schools th­ese days in or­der to pro­vide over­all devel­op­ment fa­cil­i­ties to their chil­dren. Pailan World School is one of the prom­i­nent in­ter­na­tional schools in the city that has ex­cel­lent over­all in­fra­struc­ture. En­trance tests are car­ried out for ad­mis­sion in classes in­clud­ing UKG and LKG, class I, II, III, V, IX and XI. At the plus two level en­trance tests are taken for sci­ence and com­merce streams as well. Th­ese tests are taken in any con­ve­nient day dur­ing Jan­uary and March. Dur­ing the submission of form at Pailan World School you must sub­mit the board­ing and med­i­cal form along with a non-re­fund­able reg­is­tra­tion fee.

Apee­jay School has al­ready started its ad­mis­sion pro­ce­dure but there are no va­can­cies in up­per classes like class I or V. "We ad­mit stu­dents aged 3 to 4 years old in the lower kg sec­tion and this is only cri­te­ria of our ad­mis­sion. We have started dis­tribut­ing forms since the last week and Novem­ber 30 is the last date of col­lect­ing forms," said Rita Chat­ter­jee, prin­ci­pal of Apee­jay School.
