The list of students selected to Class 1 in Kendriya Vidyalayas across the country has been released by many schools on their website on Wednesday and the remaining are expected to upload it by Thursday evening, an official said.
“The admission list is also being simultaneously displayed on the school’s notice board for the parents to check. The list of all the schools is not being displayed at one central portal,” a Kendriya Vidyalaya Sangathan (KVS) official, who did not want to be named, told Hindustan Times.
“Intimation will also be sent through emails to parents of the child so they can know the status of their application,” the official added.
The official said around 6.5 lakh children applied for admissions to Class 1.
Registration, which was open for all KVs in the 25 regions, started on February 8. The admission process has been online and cloud based in order to make it transparent.
Due to heavy demand from parents and students for admissions, the KVS extended the last date for registration in Class 1 by 5 days to March 15.
The registration process for Class 2 to 9 will begin in April and admissions for Class 11 in KVs will start after the declaration of the result of CBSE Class 10 board examination.
KVs are centrally funded schools that provide quality education at affordable rates in the country. Over 1.2 million students study in 1,142 KVs across the country.
