The application forms for entry level admissions to private schools in Delhi will begin on February 18, according to a notification released by the Delhi government’s Directorate of Education on Wednesday.

This process—which usually kicks off in December—has been delayed by two months due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and the government had even considered doing away with the admission process for the 2021-2022 session.

According to Wednesday’s notification, schools will have to upload their admission criteria by February 17 and applications will begin on February 18. The last date for submitting the forms is March 4, and the first list of selected children will be published on March 20. The entire process will conclude on March 31.

This schedule is for admissions at entry level classes to private schools in Delhi—nursery, KG or class I as the case may be for different schools—a hugely competitive process with a scramble for seats in the city’s prominent schools.

One added point in this year’s notification admissions is for restrictions on fee collection at the time of admission. “… schools are closed and physical classroom learning is not going on for entry level classes at present… no fee except prescribed registration fee, admission fee, caution fee (if school already charges) and tuition fee, shall be charged at the time of admission by the private schools and thereafter only tuition fee shall be charged from the students till further orders,” the circular said.
