As the nursery admission process nears, Neeru Mendiratta is a bundle of nerves.
Apart from the varying criteria of schools, Mendiratta is also worried that the time for sale and submission of forms is too short.
With just 15 days for form sale and submission at hand, parents will have to hop, skip and jump from one school to another to collect and submit forms.
Schools across the city will start selling forms from January 1 as per the common admission schedule issued by the Directorate of Education and the sale and submission of forms will end by January 15. Last year parents were given a month.
"Every school has a different criteria. We don't know where our child will secure admission. So to be on the safe side I will have to collect forms from a lot of schools and it is going to be hectic. I wish the schools provided forms online," said Mendiratta.
Perhaps taking a cue from the anxiety surrounding admissions, some schools have decided to put their forms online.
"We are making the forms available online for 75% general category seats. This will save parents the trouble of standing in queues to collect forms. Besides, administratively, too, it is easier for us to compile the data online," said MI Hussain, Delhi Public School, Mathura Road.
Other schools with online forms include Apeejay School in Pitampura, Bal Bharti School, Gangaram Marg, and the Dwarka branch, Delhi Public School, RK Puram, and Gyan Bharti, Saket.
But Laxman Public School, Hauz Khas, Tagore International School, both Vasant Vihar and East of Kailash, VVDAV School, Vikaspuri, have made it mandatory to submit the forms in person even though their forms will also be online.
Most schools in the Capital, however, will go the traditional way. "Not everyone has access to the internet, so to make the admission process uniform we will provide forms in hard copy," said Vandana Puri, principal, Salwan Public School, Rajinder Nagar.
