Schools declare points format for nursery admission

Admissions begin next week; sibling, alumni and neighbourhood allotted maximum points

With nursery admissions set to begin in the Capital in less than a week, many schools have released their point systems for the 2013-14 session.

Shri Ram School in Vasant Vihar allotted 35 points under the sibling criterion and 20 points to children of alumni or staff members. Five points each will be awarded to adopted children and wards of single parents.

The neighbourhood criteria, which awards more points to children who live close to the school, has been allotted a maximum of 20 points. Children living between 12 and 15 kilometres from the school will only get five points under the category.

The school is also awarding points for children between the age of 3.5 years and 4.5 years as on March 31, 2012. These children will get 10 additional points, while those between 3 years and 3.5 years will receive none. First-born children will get 10 extra points.

Sanskriti School in Chanakyapuri, which has a 60 per cent reservation for All India and Central Services belonging to Group A and Serving Officers of Defence Services has allotted 25 points to the neighbourhood category.

As many as 20 points will be given to children with siblings at Sanskriti School. Only five points have been provided under the alumni category.

Springdales School, Pusa Road, is one of the few schools that award points to children under the "Inter-State Transfers/Children from Overseas" criteria. Children in this category will get five points. The alumni and the sibling criteria take the lion's share of points from the tally — a combined 55 points. Another unusual criteria at the school is for minorities and the girl child. Children under each of these criteria will get five points.

Tagore International School in East of Kailash has allotted 20 points to the distance criterion and 30 points to first-born children, 20 to the second and none to the third child.
