Private unaided schools in the national capital released their first list for nursery admission on Tuesday.
Schools said they have released the first list and parents can come to school for document verification and admission.
Many parents, however, said they have not been able to make it to the list of any school. Parents, many of whom had applied to multiple schools, lamented the lack of uniform criteria.
“My child’s name has not come in even a single school out of the 12 that I have checked today. Every school has a different set of criteria. While some are keeping neighbourhood at 0-1 kms, others have 0-6 kms. Schools have different points for sibling and alumni,” said Sumit Malhotra, a resident of Dwarka.
Parents already know the details of the points their children have received since schools have uploaded the details on their websites. The Delhi government had directed the schools to upload the list of students who had applied and the points they got.
For admission to nursery classes, children are given points on the basis of criteria such as distance, sibling, alumni and others. In schools, where more than one child received the same score, draw of lots will be held.
Schools in which seats are left vacant after completing the process, a second list will be released on March 17.
This is only for the general category seats and not for the 25% seats meant for the Economically Weaker Section/Disadvantaged (EWS/DG) category. The admission to this category is centralised and is conducted by the government. The application process for the students in this category is over.
Officials said the list for EWS admission will come out in the next week. “Hopefully by next week we will conduct the draw of lots and list of students will be out,” an official said.
