The admission procedure for nursery admissions

As the season of nursery admissions sets in, some of the schools have already selected the pupils they would groom in the upcoming academic session. Schools across the country either selling forms or have already ended that part of the selection process. To fill the seats of a batch of 60 students in a school, more than 5000 forms are issued each year by schools, that too at a hefty price. Nowadays, it seems that the selection procedure for nursery admission than for any engineering or medical entrance.

The selection criteria of the students depends primarily on his/her age, and is less than three years old at the date determined by the institution, even filling up the form is futile. This leaves many parents with no choice other than to wait a whole academic year in order to apply for the admission. Just imagine, schools deciding that a child is born at the wrong time! Many schools take such scenarios into account and set the date keeping the best interests of the child in mind.

The selection procedure involves an ‘interactive session’, wherein a child is observed by the Principal or the concerned authorities of the school regarding the level of understanding of concepts he/she possesses. If the student is able to meet the criteria set by the school, his parents are called for an interview. During this stage, both parents are questioned about their educational and family backgrounds, interests and hobbies, employment status and positions, among a plethora of questions. Apart from all of this, the parents are made to fill innumerable forms and bring forth a large number of documents.

After all this, the school authorities prepare a list in which the students who have been deemed fit for it are named. Along with this comes a lot of form-filling, which has to be done the same day as the list comes out, otherwise the seat is forwarded to another pupil. The process ends with the payment fee, which is nothing short of humongous these days. Actually, the fee is affordable in most cases, it is the ‘School Development Fund’ (erstwhile called donation) that burns a hole in the pocket of the parents.
