The Admission Process
The new academic session begins in early April every year.
Ayanambakkam branch offers classes from grade PKG (Pre-KG) to Grade 8 for CBSE students and Grade PKG (Pre-KG) to A Level (Grade 12) for Cambridge students.
Admissions are offered on the basis of availability of seats. Aptitude/proficiency test is mandatory for the students. Admissions in IGCSE, AS/A Level is based on the board exam results and availability of subjects depends on the grades scored in the subjects chosen. The school allows students of IGCSE, AS and A Level to take subjects across the three streams: Humanities, Commerce and Science. However, students are allowed to make their own group of subjects with wide range of subjects available.
PROCEDURE FOR REGISTRATION
An application for registration is the first stage of the admissions process. A registration fee must be sent along with the application so that the student’s name may be registered for the year and class for which admission is sought. The fee is neither refundable nor adjustable and it is valid only for the specified academic year. Registration of a student is not a guarantee of her admission.
REQUIREMENTS AT THE TIME OF REGISTRATION
One recent passport size photograph of the student has to be attached.
The completed Registration card must be submitted with an attested photocopy of the student's Birth Certificate and the Registration Fee.
The Birth Certificate should be issued by the Registrar of Births and Deaths of the area in which the student was born. Affidavits, certificates from the hospital, or certificates from any other person are not accepted. The Birth Certificate should not be dated more than one year after the date of birth.
Every student registered for admission into classes VI and above is expected to appear for an Aptitude/Proficiency Assessment. Offers of admission are given on the basis of the results of these Assessments and depend on the number of vacancies in each class. Some preference is given to children of transferable Government officials and serving Armed Forces personnel. Preference is also given to those whose real brothers and sisters are at present studying in the School.
Any requests for other preferential treatment are not entertained. Only in very rare and exceptional cases, the Board of Governors reserves the right to exercise its discretion in the matter of admissions.
The student is also required to pass a medical fitness test.
