Delhi: Schools go online with nursery admissions

New Delhi: About 300 schools in the national capital opened up nursery admissions for the year 2012 on Monday. With more and more schools going online, things have definitely become simpler, but concerns still remain.

The sense of uncertainty is still very much around with lakhs of applicants, a handful of schools and few seats.

Puneet Malhotra, a 41-year old consultant, has been to seven schools so far. He feels that all schools should have the same criteria for admission. At the moment all schools follow different procedures under the points system, making things complicated for parents.

"I have been to six to seven schools and they all have different admission procedures," Malhotra said.

In general most parents share the sentiment that all schools should make forms available online. But as all schools have a different criteria, it's best to check the website of the school before venturing out, to save some trouble.
