Got call for NPS HSR just now. Interaction on Monday. Asked to come with DD 164900
Mayus u got call for more than 1 center?
Excluded books uniform and transport
In ur earlier posts u mentioned ur kid got shortlisted for NPS-KRM and when I see ur today's post,again u r telling u received call for NPS-HSR.
Really Surprised to know that we can even get calls from more than one branches in NPS. Haven't heard before.
@Mayus..Clear one more thing Please
For which class (MOUNT1 & KG1) ur kid is called from both the branches.
@all... whoever got calls from NPS, can you please share some insights what might have been the selection criteria...!!!
@kunal1, and everyone@, we had our interaction yesterday at NPS HSR for KG1. Chairman Dr. Gopalkrishna interviewed us. I wanted to share my speculation on the criteria used to shortlist parents (well, all children are great and it's really the parents that they choose to call for interaction).
The Chairman seems much involved in the admission process. I suspect he lets someone take a first pass at it -- some basic income criteria to find people that make enough to be able to pay the school fees. Beyond this, I don't think salary plays a major role. Then, I guess he analyzes the applications personally based on how "impressive" an application looks with an eye for diversity. They I think want to admit students whose parents are in diverse professions -- engineers, doctors, government employees, professors etc. I have heard that sibling criteria is also taken seriously.
To summarize, here is how I think it works:1) Basic salary test2) Then two groups are created: sibling and non-sibling. May be they earmark the number of seats for each group, say 30 for sibling, and 30 for non-sibling.3) In each category, impressiveness of the application + diversity in terms of parents' profession will determine if one is called or not. This step is completely subjective.
If it indeed is as I surmise it is, then it's a purely random selection (or pure luck if you will). Salary plays only a part role: say between X, and Y X's salary is higher. Still Y may be shortlisted over X because that makes the school look "diverse".
Where do u currently reside..Area Please?
quite subjective actually...the only info they is parents designation...so i guess thats the only info they can infer...
i though distance play a role..but after seeing a couple of cases i am sure it does not...
but anyway...congratz to all who got through.. :)
Wat did they ask in interview
Do they consider both parents working?
How diversified was ur application
Just curious :)
During the interview, the Chairman asked the child her name and that was it as far as his questions for the child were concerned. He chatted with us for may be 5 to 10 minutes: Where we are from etc. Our application was more of a typical one for Bengaluru: both my wife and I work in IT.
can you please let me know your kids age by June 2019?
Parents please dont loose hope. Because there are still 2nd or 3rd list. We got call as part of 3nd list. But as we already taken admission in Krm.Wont go for HSR. so there will be 3rd list.
As highlighted by blrparent2 they want to have diverse crowd. No intention to reject based on salary.
But for HSR is nearer than KRM. WHAT TO DO....
@Mayus..Have a word with Gopalakrishna Sir if can...
@Mayus Were both calls for kg1? Can you please let me know your kids age by June 2019?
Ya have to try that option AHMama
Today was our Interaction n discussion round. It went smooth and was for 10 mins. It is just a confirmation that kids are enrolled. Madam asked some basic questions n offered toffees to my kids n finally before leaving she said welcome to NPS family.
For further Communication, they will intimate us through email.
This is all about out Interaction round at NPS Indiranagar branch.
Parents have faith ,u might also get calls..it lookslike they are calling in batch n completing admission process after Interaction is over n then calling another batch.
@Mayus...any update...did u manage to talk to Sir...regarding transfer from KRM to HSR.
Thanks for asking.
We thought to go ahead with krm.
Even though the distance little far away.
So one more student will get call for hsr today. It could be anyone.
