Some Private Schools Start The Process, Others Waiting For Government Guidelines : Delhi Nursery Admissions 2017-18

Nursery admission in Delhi schools started on January 2 and the parents are still facing troubles with choosing schools for their children. Plenty of complaints have been reported after Delhi nursery admissions kicked off in the beginning of this week. Most prominent among them is the confusion over 298 schools in the capital city. After Delhi Directorate of Education (DoE) notified that schools on public land of Delhi Development Land (DDA) will have new guidelines for nursery admissions, so far, the only thing happened in that front is the meeting between school authorities and the Directorate of Education.

According to reports, those who have attended the meeting informed the government authorities their concerns regarding having two sets of standards for schools in the capital. 
Though there was no common admission guidelines published after the meetings, some private schools in the capital have already started admission procedure. 

Some schools are waiting for the government guidelines to come regarding the criteria and they have informed the parents about this, Red Roses Public School is one of them. "Pre-School admission for the session 2017-18 has been stopped till further guidelines from Directorate of Education", Red Roses Public School has said in a notice published in their website. 

Amidst all this confusion, parents are worried. Their major concern is; what will happen if they wait for the new guidelines and its aftermath. For the past few years Nursery admissions in Delhi have seen many controversies, with parents taking schools and the government to court over changing rules and guidelines several times. 

Meanwhile there were reports suggesting that the Delhi government is planning to do away with the management quota in the nursery admissions. If that happens, the schools and parents may again will be dragged into the court procedures as happened last year in which the schools procured a stay on Delhi government's decision to end the management quota in school admissions.

According to the education department's notification, admission forms were available from January 2 and the last date to submit applications is January 23. 

The first list of selected candidates, including those waitlisted, along with marks allotted under the point system, will be announced by schools on February 15. The second list, if any, will come out on February 29 and the admission process will close on March 31.

Schools gearing up to criteria and points, here is the inside story!

Schools gearing up to criteria and points and SWL brings you the "inside story"!

1400+ schools of Delhi are ready with their selection criteria and points, brings you the inside story, wondering what the criteria is going to be, and how many points schools are going to assign to each one of them? Know them first and know them now.

I brought you story around DOE/Delhi Gov mistakes earlier in the day, and here our data team did a detailed study and survey and found that most of the schools are going to use these criteria and points for Nursery Admissions for 2017-2018 session:
  • Neighborhood - of course this is going to be there, and anyone can guess that. But note that schools are going to break it into slabs in terms of distance and most preferred slabs are going to be -
    • 0 km to 3 km (40-50 points)
    • 3 km to 5/6 km (20-30 points)
    • 6/7 km and above (under 10 points or less)
  • Sibling - Most of the schools are going to put this in their list and expect the points to be in the range of 20-30 points (in some cases schools would give extra points in case of two siblings in same school)
  • Alumni - Schools love to give advantage to parents that been alumni of same school. A typical 10-20 points to this one.
  • Staff - For all different reasons, schools prefer to give extra points to kids of staff members as this works for them as well, and teachers would stay with school if their kids also attend the same school. Nobody wants to lose good teachers. Expect 10 points to this criteria.
Other favorites are -
  • First Child/Girl Child/Single Parent - Schools have been giving points to these, and usually this would attract 10 points and this case really handy for many parents of course.
  • Transferable job - Schools prefer a fix number of kids that help them rotate the seats as they are promoted to senior classes, this helps them generate more revenue and profits (how? that's a long story for another day :D). Usually this attracts 10 points. Further if you are wondering if your job is considered a transferable job or not? Drop a message in comments with details of what sort of job you are in and I shall revert.
Good luck parents!

3 mistakes that DOE/Delhi Govt could have avoided - and they did it again!? Check out...

It is not rocket science and even if it would have been that complex, don't they have required resources, or support, or authority to get it done?

Parents are clueless and left to wonder, grin, and helpless once again! Nothing new in year 2017, yet again, and history repeats as schools continue to play by their own rules, and parents shall expect that those 1400 odd schools that free to choose their own criteria have no motivation or support or govt. control to relax it from what they did last year.

Here are the top 3 gross and silly mistakes that could have been avoided and it is not rocket science -

Mistake #1) DOE should have asked schools (all schools that need to publish points) to list and publish selection criteria and points by 15th December, so that parents get enough lead time (15 days) to shortlist schools they would like to apply (basis total points they are scoring).
Reality check: 
1) Guidelines for admissions to Govt schools and 298 schools on DDA land are not published as yet, admission starts tomorrow.
2) Parents would now have wait and/or to go to all schools and check the guidelines, criteria and other details starting tomorrow and that's not an easy task.

Mistake #2) DOE/Govt should have defined a fixed list of criteria that schools can choose from (say 5-8 criteria), e.g. Neighborhood (with clear and predefined distance slabs),  Sibling, Alumni, Girl Child, and so on. 

Reality check:
1) Although DOE has asked schools not to use ones from 62 list, but....schools are free to use some of them as long as they "try" to ensure it is defined well and is not biased. You know what I mean....
2) Parents struggled over years to sync up same criteria being used by different schools differently e.g. Distance slabs would vary from school to school), Alumni - mother and father and both would be rated by schools differently and there are many more...

Mistake #3) Despite of all resources available, the DOE site doesnt work properly, the information published is scattered all over the place, you really need surgical eyes and hands to find the links and information.

Reality check:
1) No summary of notices, information available, its all published in long PDFs and report formats that's hard to understand and an 'aam aadmi'. Many parents would have appreciated if the information is also available in Hindi
2)  No reliable search feature on site, no heads up on how and where the information will be published on DOE site, its all "treasure hunt" games for parents.

(Updated on 2nd Jan 2017: has come up with Search Engine on data provided by DOE to make it easy for parents to search the school criteria and points for Nursery Admissions 2017-2018)


The list is long, all I wanted to reflect here is this is all easy to implement - we are in 2017 (oh! Happy Near Year friends! :D)

The problem can be fixed this within short span of timehrs, as techie I know it is easy as long as you got data in right form and shape which I hope they have and if not, please add that as Mistake#4 :)

Wish you all a fresh beginning here and may your ward gets admission to the school you desire him/her to go to.
