Jamshedpur Nursery admission results evoke smiles and tears


Jamshedpur, Jan 21: The three-month wait of parents to see their kids being admitted to the best schools in the city ended on Saturday as 40 private city schools released their lists of admission results on Saturday, January 21.

The wheel of fortune of the 40 schools started yielding results from 6 am on Saturday.

The merit list of students was issued on the notice board and the schools’ official websites.

Most schools have adopted a manual lottery process to select candidates.

The parents, whose wards qualified for the random (lottery) admission test, were happy but those parents whose children failed to make it through were vocal and found fault with the admission process.

The unharnessed desires of parents can be deciphered from the fact that there were more than one lakh applications for 10,400 seats available.

Many parents had filled in applications to several schools. After the release of the selection lists, several parents ran around other schools where they had put in applications for admission of their children.

In the desire to give better education to their children, parents fill out the forms of many schools. In this mad rush for the best, many names appear in many schools, but for some others, it is disappointment written all over.

A parent Surojit, who came to see the list at Tagore Society in Sakchi informed that he had filled in the application form for six schools including Dayanand Public School, Rajendra Vidyalaya, St. Mary’s English School, Tagore Society but his child’s name failed to appear in the merit list of any of these schools.

As per directives of the Education Department, schools completed the lottery process by January 20. Accordingly, the lottery was conducted in the presence of Education Department officials.

Various private schools of the city organized lottery for admission in Nursery and LKG between 6th and 20th January this year. 

According to the provisions of the RTE, 25 percent of seats are reserved for the BPL students in each school.
