As per the Delhi government’s ruling, nursery admission selection happens through a lottery system (draw of lots). Eligible children’s forms are all put together and the final selection happens by a lottery system where randomly selected forms decide the final shortlist.
What does this mean for a parent?
Nursery admission selection has become like a lottery. Eligible children’s forms are all put together and the final selection happens by a lottery system where randomly selected forms decide the final shortlist. This means, the more schools you apply to, the better your child’s chances of getting admission to at least one school!
Is it possible that my child doesn’t get selected anywhere?
Yes, it is likely. Since the final selection happens through a lottery system, even if your child is very smart and intelligent & the parent has a strong academic & financial background, he might not get admitted anywhere!
How many schools should I apply to?
You should apply to at least 30-35 schools to be on the safer side. Since the final list is based on a draw of lots, this will give your child a fair chance to get selected in at least one school. Leave the final school selection to the time when your child finally gets selected in the lottery if your child is lucky to get selected in more than one schools. Until that time, you stand the risk of not getting admission at all if his form doesn’t get picked in any of the schools and you may end up wasting a year of your child..
