State board schools to follow the new approach to admissions

By Anusha

The CBSE and ICSE schools have given their representation about admission process. This has prompted the Maharashtra's education department to think of new orders for all the schools. These directives will be announced in three days.

No admissions can be conducted by schools before April 2014, said the department. This rule is applicable to admissions for class I and primary section. Although the rule has been in existing since two years, the schools have seldom followed it. Most schools begin admission process as early as September. The seats at these schools are filled by the end of the year. This results in the parents of the other "non-admitted" kids, stumble.


CBSE and ICSE schools begin their admission process four months prior to the academic year. Their admissions start in April for the academic year, this is earlier than the schools belonging to state education board.

The schools who have their academic year beginning in June have adopted this idea.

State board schools have new admission process

"A representation from CBSE and ICSE schools has asked that admission directives be changed as their academic year starts earlier than state board schools. We're considering their views and will come up with a new policy suitable for all boards. The new directives will be announced in three days." said Rajendra Darda, School education minister.

According to experts Delhi boards can begin their admission process a month prior to the academic year. A senior official from the education department said, "There is no need to conduct admissions more than six months before the start of the academic year."

President of PTA United Forum, Arundhati Chavan agreed to the decision. She said, "Admission policy must be uniform for all schools."
