Forms submitted, nursery lists to be released by February 15
Although many schools allow parents to apply online, most of them direct them to go to the schools to submit forms.
Delhi Public School, RK Puram, received approximately 6,000 forms for 396 seats in its two junior schools in Vasant Vihar and East of Kailash.
Springdales School, Pusa Road, also received 6,000 forms for 72 seats, taking the competition to 83 applicants per seat at the school. For the economically weaker sections (EWS) and disadvantaged groups category, there were almost 76 applicants per seat.
Tagore International School, in East of Kailash, received 2,850 forms for 132 seats in the general category and 750 forms for the EWS category. The ratio is about 21 applicants per seat in general and 17 applicants per seat in the reserved category.
Principals said the number of applicants increases every year, more so in the reserved category. Laxman Public School principal Usha Ram said, “The competition reaches a new high every year, especially in the EWS category.” The school received 3,000 applications for 175 general category seats and 571 forms for 43 EWS seats.
Schools are yet to receive forms collected at help desks set up by the Directorate of Education (DoE) in its 28 zones.
