 so. does any one have an inisight on when they are announcing the results??


VidhyaRajesh 2012-01-30 10:05:05


No Arun. We are not. But it seems the process has been started internally.


arunm027 2012-01-30 10:12:16


Thanks Vidya for the update. Any idea on when they will publish the results.?


DHARMDUTT 2012-01-31 11:07:21


anybody can please tell me if sboa having any system of refund of admission fee in case we withdraw admission to go to any other school.


indadm 2012-01-31 11:59:49


Per some insider info, results will be declared by Wednesday/Thursday. Let's hope for the best.

@DHARM: I don't think so, you lose the donation as well the tuition fee. But always you can check with SBOA office for more clarity.


VidhyaRajesh 2012-01-31 12:19:34


Is someone aware of what all criteria are they looking into for this LKG admission. Does the Donation fee play a role in it? Can you all please share your thoughts?


AmyTom 2012-01-31 12:52:56


Hi VidhyaRajesh, when we went for the interaction, we enquired the teacher at the second panel, 'what would be the selction criteria?' She told us if you are desperate to put your kid in SBOA, pls raise the donation amount. She told that 'Current year it starts from 60 K is what I heard'.


VidhyaRajesh 2012-01-31 13:28:17


oh. We have quoted less amount only. Do u have any idea if this donation can be updated. I am ready to raise it. But donno how to?


AmyTom 2012-01-31 13:40:45


We mentioned 50K initially, and since she told it starts from 60 K, we got that appln. form and changed the amount and signed in that place and gave back the application . Donno whether we can do that now. May be go in person and approach the school if you could do that now.


DHARMDUTT 2012-01-31 15:25:15


 i heard from one friend, before issueing list they will allow you increase the amount. but hurry, they 'll be updating the list.


arunm027 2012-01-31 16:05:24


Hmmm.. sounds like an auction!!


IndyParent 2012-01-31 16:10:42


is there any list published ... 1st List , 2nd , 3rd any updates ? Parents...


VidhyaRajesh 2012-01-31 17:45:41


Has anyone quoted less than 60K? I am planning to go to school and enquire. God knows if they wil allow :-)


indadm 2012-01-31 23:16:24


I & some of my co-workers quoted 50k & 55k.


krishiaishu 2012-02-01 13:57:27


My wife's friend has twins and she has quoted 70K in the application


indadm 2012-02-01 14:02:31


Any news on SBOA results? I have been trying to reach school office thru phone & no one picks up...


nandhumom 2012-02-01 17:57:16


HI VidhyaRajesh,

did u approach the school and were u able to change the amount quoted. My friend went and approached the school,they said they wud be posting the letters to the shortlisted applicants tomorrow and they need not want the others who didnt receive the letter to appraoch the school later.I am afraid i quoted 50 losing hopes day by day. have to chk my letter box carefully for next 2 days:)


krishiaishu 2012-02-01 18:22:22


 Nandhumon: Don't lose your hopes. Think positively that there would be people who may have quoted less 50K.. 70K figure that I mentioned is something that was confirmed by her. I was taken aback after hearing the amount. But since she didn't get the twins admn last year in PSBB, didn't want to miss out on SBOA. Hence quoted this amount knowing pretty well that it is on the higherside.

We are all discussing about LKG admn and not engineering college admn. I feel that we the parents who are to be blamed for this mess since we attach so much of importance for the brand.

I am sure, there are many in this forum who may not have studied in such a branded school but doing very well.

BTW: I am trying for Pre-KG adm. Like any other parent in this forum looking for a good school..But fell off from my chair after hearing the donation amounts being discussed in Chettinad, Pon Vidyashram and Chennai Public School.. God bless our educational system.

Apologies if I sounded in a preaching mode. Just wanted to share my 2cents worth of thought..




IndyParent 2012-02-01 18:26:47


nandhumon I have heared in this forum that people has quoted below 50K so no worried , worst case you can call and tell them that you are willing to quote more if you think so after the results if you think so...


indadm 2012-02-01 23:40:37


I was informed by some source that 1st list would be of SBI official kids & donation of 65K and above

2nd  & 3rd list - They'll consider other quoted amount. Again, people think that if we quote bigger works in SBOA..Not really..they have rejected some of my friends who quoted big numbers last year..

On the school, i talked to few of my friends relatives whose kids are studying in SBOA..they are really happy with the school. They were upset with the kind of questions i asked though..They said..Come on! SBOA is afterall in Top 5 CBSE schools in Tamilnadu..Since the class strength is 45 per section, yes parents need to spend quality time with the kid to mould them better..I was quite impressed with the feedbacks from parents except for spoken english..Kids outside the class speak in regional language since there is mix of all class of people..Apart from that overall feedback is very good..


VidhyaRajesh 2012-02-02 11:29:42


Nandumom: I went to SBOA school yesterday. Sports Day celebration is ongoing. They dint allow anyone inside esp regarding LKG admission.

One of the watchman there told me, results will not be published, but only sent through couriers.

And today morning after seeing indadm s response, my hubby went to the school and the watchman today told him, results will not be announced this week because of sports day celebrations. and can expect it only next week. He also added that selected candidates list will be put up in the main entrance gate itself.

Both of their s  stattements are contradictory. I am already gettign tensed day by day.

Is anyone aware how the results will be published.

I am really worried because, we live in an apartment of 50 houses. therre may be chances that the lettere are put in the other blocks.

Someone please help me...........


IndyParent 2012-02-02 11:35:21


Best thing is to keep checking with the school regularily...


VidhyaRajesh 2012-02-02 16:51:11


Has anyone received letters from SBOA. If so, please post it so that rest others can be aware.


BALAKUMART 2012-02-02 17:07:06


less then 60k not possible? are u sure?


VidhyaRajesh 2012-02-02 17:18:21


Will any recommendations work at this point of time. if so, what sort of recommendations we need to llok for. Some one please explain?


indadm 2012-02-02 23:12:48


@Vidhya: Of course, you should look for top SBI officials or some members in SBIOA association.

@Balakumar: I have quoted less than no worries. But someone said they consider less amount in 2nd & 3rd list..Again it is all from unknown sources..Only school knows the real criteria..
