my son attended the interaction for ukg admission on nov 19th 2014, and then was called for a 2nd round on dec 9th. I was told that we would hear back within a week, but i still haven't heard anything from them. Is there anybody else that attended the interaction on dec 9th? Have you all received any response??
Thanks in advance!
I had called the school a while ago and I was told that UKG seats are put on hold right now, since there are very few seats available!!!!
Has anybody got any other response apart from this?
We had applied for LKG admission for our daughter and today we were given the same answer. Earlier they had informed that we will be intimated about the decision within a week. Today they told that they will have idea about any vacancy by December end and not before that..
December end.....hmmm..... Not too far! Fingers crossed! Good luck..... :)
Yes, not too far..but unfortunately we have to decide whether to wait.. my daughter has been offered admission NPS Gottigere and feeling anxious as to whether we she wait for Samhita.. Am very keen on Samhita and not too sure about NPS gottigere..Do you have any idea / reviews about the school..would appreciate any feedback that you might have..And best of luck to you :)
Not much of an idea about nps. Concentrating on samhita, psbb, sherwood, for now....... Now that samhita is getting delayed, I shouldve probably tried for nps as well, i feel... Too late though :(
Which are do you live? How far is samhita from your place?
We stay near Billekahalli in BG road, Samhita would be 10 - 11 km from our place..
I suggest you start checking elsewhere as well. I went to Samhita last Saturday to check the status. Who ever got through has got communication. My sons is in wailist. ie, if someone who got doesnt pay up by Jan 9, then they 'may' be considered. I feel that is too much of a wait. So I have started looking into other schools
Oh gosh! Thats bad news.... Which other schools are you trying? I visited sherwood n bgs a couple of times, but they outrightly say no vacancies.... I feel so confused
which class is your son applying for? When did he have his interaction?
For Nursery/PreKG interaction was on Nov 17th. When was yours. Just wanted to know if there were multiple sessions
Sherwood closed around August/Sep. And BGS from what I have heard closes the same day they open for admission. I heard that some people stood in the queue for 22 hrs. Dont think its worth it.
Following comments are purely personal opinion.
I checked PSBB (they had some issues with age though they are very much in the limits. Told that we can directly put them in a higher class which we didnt want to)
Sudarsan( Not too great feeling. Also they too told the same interaction mechanism though i dont think people are rushing there. My kids were enthu about school till Samhita interaction happened. Havent seen them cry like that till now and are very reluctant to go to any school which fortunately has changed now after these visits to the other schools. So didnt want them to have same kind of session again. Also didnt feel it to be a good school)
School of India (Good school is what I felt. Infrastructure is good. It was the old Heritage Academy which has now changed hands. run by the same management which runs DPs in Bangalore)
NPS (Not so welcome feel. Walked about a km to get in to the reception only to be told that check the details online. Told thank you and came back. Also its along with T John college. not sure about the kind of atmosphere/env that kids are getting exposed to. And its a franchise and not the same NPS management as in KOR or Indiranagar)
AECS Magnolia ( Nothing to complain about except that the principal outrightly refused to hand over the paper in which she wrote the fee structure. Also was informed that there are only 10 seats left. not sure if that was to put a pressure )
BVM Global ( Again a good school. very flexible payment options. No playground right now but they are shifting to a new campus by end of next year which is supposed to be big. Need to check that place if possible)
All the best
My sons first round of interaction was on nov 19th and the next one on dec 9th. I believe the selection is complete only for pre kg. lkg n ukg are yet to be announced. However, like you said, its better to try at other places as well!! Thanks for the info on all the schools..... Really helpful
Sure. Will send you my phone no by email. Most probably though we'll go ahead with NPS gottigere. Cant afford to wait for Samhita in case we don't get admission there..
Received email from the school today, informing that my son has got a seat for UKG! Good luck everyone....
Hi Bulldozer, Thank you for your take on these schools. I stay in JP Nagar 7th Ph and my son is right now 2.6 yrs old. He is going to KidZee for his play class. I am really worried about his main school admission. Going through several portals to be prepared for whats waiting for me.... It is so scary for me, cant even imagine what our kids have to go through! My heart goes to your kids...
Meanwhile my kids too got into Samhita. Got the mail couple of days back. But I have decided on BVM.
@kskumaraxa , Hope you have a good experience. All the best
My son's interaction was on 19th Nov. and after following up with them (in mid december since that was the timeline which they have indicated), I received a very confusing reply that "they will let us know if seats are available". when asked further that is there any timeline within which I can expect a definite yes or no, they seem to conveniently ignore such e-mail. it gives a very poor impression on the way the school is handling their admission process. If they are unsure as to no. of seats available then they should stop making money by multiple admission form...
Thanks and congrats! Could you please update us the reasons for choosing BVM over Samhita?
I heard from my friend's wife that Samhita is the better school at the moment in JPNagar-BTM-BGRoad area, but looks like their treatment says otherwise.
Did you get any further updates from the school?
@osho77, I guess that is little disturbing for not knowing the status for this long. Hopefully, you guys might get through!
What is the fee structure at Samhita? Can you please let me know?
Any latest information on Samhita school fee? and also do they have distance criteria for selection? I'm interested in putting my son for 2018-19 1std
