Anyone received updates from Sri Kumarans after submitting the 1st standard ICSE application on/after Jan 25? Anyone called for interview? Please post all your comments related to 2014 ICSE 1st grade admissions to this thread.
I have applied for grade 1 for my son at Sri Kumarans. I got a msg on my cell phone on 25th jan after submitting the form online. It was an acknowledgement. .dats it. Can anyone tell what is time taken for them to revert back after they receive the applications? If anyone has friends or neighbours whose children have got an admission last year should be able to guide us. Also can anyone brief us what istheir criteria for admission s?
Did you get a call/mail from kumarans? Its 10 days now that we submitted online. Could you collect some information as to when they might contact the selected children? Had you called the school?
No Kiran. Even my application status is 'Acknowledged' at present & I'm also waiting for response. I haven't called the school. But I went through few past year discussion threads here, seems like after acknowledgement it took almost 15-20 days for the status to change to Interview. As per those discussions the final selection will happen at least a week after interview. It will be of great help if other parents who applied for Kumarans 2014 ICSE 1st grade also participate in this thread & provide their updates.
Same here. I am also waiting for their update.Status shows "Acknowledged"
I called the school today. They will inform the parents whose kids are selected/shortlisted by end of this week.
Thanks Kiran. I will post here if there is any update from School.
Hey do you think they will interview the children and then shortlist again? Bcz on the website they have mentioned "no admission test' for grade 1. So that means a long wait ....have you all applied at any other schools? By now I guess other schools must have narrowed down and done with admissions.
I'm not so sure, but as per earlier threads there will be a 5-10 minute face-to-face interaction before final list is announced a week after interview. Haven't tried any other school yet, enquiring few. What about you?
Oh ok. I tried talking to the reception at DPS but they keep saying there no seats yet.
I thought some who have applied at Kumarans this year like us would join this thread.
Even i am in a same boat, i spoke to kumarans they said will get cal by this week end or early next week
I have my daughter studying in Kumarans - ICSE. We have applied for our son this year. We too are waiting to hear from the school. The status is 'Acknowleged'. We hope to hear from the school soon,
I guess your son will get admission on sibling basis. You don't have to worry much. And one of my friend mentioned that the written test will be sometime in april for all kids...is this true? I somehow couldn't digest this. I mean how can we wait till April? All backup options will be closed by then. Somebody plz help me clarify this...
From my experience, I'm sure Kumarans school keeps you informed about the admission tests and the dates they are to be held, if there are any, well in advance. If you have applied for ICSE, you should get to hear from the school soon. Registrations for CBSE was not open for grade 1. I read that most students passing out from nursery wing opted for CBSE and so they had no seats currently. If any seats are available, the registration opens on March 20th. Instructions are very clear on their website.
I hope my son gets an admission in this school. I, somehow, do not want to take it for granted that he will be through just because of his sister studying in that school.
Yes Vani. ..I agree that kumarans keep you posted. I have gone through their website also. I had called the school to ask why I couldn't open the CBSE application form on pupilpod and they told me that they have many siblings waiting for admission so they have the CBSE mallasandra reserved for them. Ya..like you said lets not take anything granted. Leta wait...
Can ny1 help me out wat the process of admissions for lkg.....I mean when the applications for admission gets opened....wat the age criteria....as iam new to blr....
As I heard from some of my relatives tat a boy seeking admissions having to b of 4years age as on june 2014.....which my son fails as he will b of 3.6years....even guide me if not eligible wat haveto ddo n some best pre kg schools near by shantinagar or basavangudi....thank u
welcome to Bangalore. ..the same case is with my son he completes 6.5yrs in june. The age required for LKG in most schools is 4 yrs by june. There are many schools in and around basavanagudi but it depends whether you want to start off in a bigger school or with playschool. I am afraid that most bigger schools have closed down or in process of shortlisting. But if yours is a transfer case then you will be lucky. Maybe you can check on internet and visit the school personally n talk. I suggest you get your child's admission done once for all in a bigger school as you dont have to struggle again during 1st std.
Thank u kiran....its helps me a lot....I will go to st joseph european school n let them know as iam going to get transferred n unaware of the admission process....so plz help me out as to wat to do for admission over their school
Ya even u r ri8 nce we had our sons admission over a bigger school we have not to look back upto 12th standard tats wat iam looking but its age factor as I came to know from reception of st joseph school ki ur son have to b 4years of age otherwise he won't b eligible for admission now iam confused wat to do....shall I waste 1year by admitting him in nursery school or wat....iam totally confused yaar
Just got an SMS from Kumarans for interview next week for my son. We've applied for - 1st std ICSE.
I received an sms too from the school. My son has been called for an interview next week at Kumarans - ICSE.
Hi vani can u help.me by enquiring tat r there ny posibilities to apply for admission to lkg now as iam new to blr n unaware of the admission process over here
Admissions for Nursery school are closed in most of the schools now. But there is nothing to worry. You need to approach schools personally and request for an admission. Please decide sooner and get in touch with the school authorities either through phone or through mail. A visit to the school personally will also help you to decide which school is best for your child. It is up to the school authorities to let you see the school or not. A direct appoach helps most of the times.
congratulations to all who got the sms es for I interaction. So atleast this means you are shortlisted. All the best to you guys...
Can you please share the Interview questions? Sorry :-(
As one of my friend had his interview at sophia....he was saying they asked the girl rhymes, A to Z , some fruits name by showing the picture, color identification. ...n they asked the parents y sophia....their responsibilities etc....
So don't worry chinns....they just interview the child to know whether he eligible for the standard or not....so no need to panic....be chilled
