Both my kids have got admission in NPS, Chennai this year (Class 7 and Class 2).
I have a few questions for which I will be happy to receive your replies:-
a) How is the school - in academics and in extra curricular?
b) I stay in Velachery now , Is it okay to travel from here to the school at Gopalapuram everyday. There are no van facilities to Velachery from the school.
could u pls let me know when they announced the results and also could u pls let me know what they asked in the entrance exam for 2 std as i have got the application form yesterday for my daughter going to 2std next year pls help.the entrance is on 27 of this month
Can you tell me if NPS is a good school for NRI kids. If I ask for admissions for both my daughters( In classes 4 and 2) now , what are the chances of me getting in?
can u pls let me know as to when is the entrance exam for kids who are going to join 2nd grade for the academi year [2010- 2011]???
Can u pls tell me whether the entrance test for 2nd grade for the academic year [2010-2011] is allready over at NPS??????
1. Classes are good, provided you need to follow your kids for some extend.
2. In case of boys it is very little, for girls somewhat good.
3. Transport from Velachery is not advisable. Childrens will get tired, particularly younger. it is 12~15 Kms(perfect route) distance depands upon where u at Velacherry. If you pay 8000K as rent, then transport will come to 2000 per month for both the childrens. Better to move nearby areas like Royapettah, Triplicane, Mylapore, Gopalapuram( Ordered based on the rent) where you can get good decent houses for 10K.
My kids took the entrance on 9.1.2010 and the results were announced on 18.01.2010. Principal met us on 19.01.2010 and we were asked to pay the fees (Rs.60250/-) for class 2 before 25.1.2010.
As far as the test goes they ask a few addition and subtraction problems in Maths- simple ones and a teacher guides the kids, other subjects like English and EVS was also there - totally one and a half hours.
Out of 19 children who took the test with my son 5 were selected.
If you want any further info pl let me know.
Thank you so much for your reply.
As you said the kids have to be guided through their studies - that happens in every school but may I know what you mean by "very little for boys" and "somewhat good for girls" - i did not understand that part of your reply.
Also, I doubt whether any apartments are available for 8000 rent per month in that area. My friend has just signed up a single bedroom for 12500 per month there and our minimum requirement would be a double bedroom.
Anyways I hope sincerely my sons will get some good friends and some good education at NPS.
We are trying for admission to Standard 1 at NPS, Koramangala, Bangalore. We would like to know more details about the test patterns, syllabus etc.
Kindly guide us in this regard.
My kid has got admission to NPS chennai into 3rd standard. The fees is around 60K. Can anyone tell me how is the school in terms of academics and sports? I see many students attending schools with slippers (which looks little strange to me). Also, i am trying to grab a 2bhk flat in nearby areas for around 12-15K, but no luck till now.
MY DAUGHTER IS IN CLASS 7 & SON IN CLASS 3 THIS YEAR.
BOOKS CONFORM 2 ICSE PATTERN. SO THE KIDS BETTER SLOG HARD- ESP. MATHS AND II LANG.
TEACHERS DO THEIR JOB WELL BUT WE HAVE TO OUR BIT 4 OUR OWN KIDS- ESP .THE ELDER ONES.

EXTRA-C IS THRU INTRA ACTIVITIES.

Results came yesterday.But we are verymuch upset.my daughter didin't get selected
(class 4).do they reconsider?pl., let me know
Same here.. I did see the results yesterday night and is very much upset. My son didn't get selected for class 1. I am not very sure whether they reconsider or not. Also, what is the criteria?? My son is Outstanding in his class and has very good knowledge and understanding so I am 100% sure that he must have done the test well.
What are all the other schools we need to look for ??!!
What happens if your son/daughter is not selected but in the waitlisted candidates. Will they be considered later . Has this hapened to anybody. Thanks, your replies will be appreciated.
Janni,I hope they would consider wating list candidates based on the confirmation on selected candidates. If it is the waiting list atleast you can have the hopes and keep trying to get in.
I'M HOPING FOR "GROVE SCHOOL.".BUT CAN'T JUDGE BY IT'S REVIEWS.IT'S A MIXED OF BOTH GOOD N BAD. REVIEWS..DO YOUHAVE IDEA?
THEN...ONLY INTERNATIONAL SCHOOLS ' LIKE BILLABONG,HLC. ETC. ADMISSIONS ARE OPEN AS OF NOW I THINK...THEY ARE TOO FAR FROM OUR PLACE..
WHERE ARE U STAYING? I'M IN SAIDAPET..LET ME KNOW SOME SCHOOLS FROM YOUR SIDE.
I am staying in Triplicane. I did get admission for my son in GT Aloha Vidya Mandir. It seems to be a good school with very good infrastructure. One of my colleagues daughter is in the school and he provides very good feedback about the studies and extra curricular activities in the school.
Groove is ICSE board and even i was interested to try in Groove but when I read the difference between ICSE and CBSE and the pros and cons, I have decided to stick to CBSE.
Which school your daughter is in now?
Regarding other schools, DAV, P.S.Sr, Sri Sankara (Adyar) - but I went to all these places but no scope to get admission.
Dont get upset. National Public school is very keen to keep its academic record intact. It has decided to select students which the schools perceive are from good upmarket areas. In the entrance test results declared yesterday a interesting observation came to my knowledge. Only Students from Gopalpuram and Egmore area were selected. Even if you are from nearby Triplicane Area your application is rejected. So guys dont waste your time in schools like this, They are in business of money making and if they are interested in students of this area they should have mentioned in the prospectus itself rather than creating this situation which is waste of time. It would be better if the school declare the criteria of selection. Otherwise my sincere advise to parents dont even call them or buy forms wasting your precious time and energy.
Thanks for your reply kalakavi. How would they consider the waitlisted candidates. there are six children waitlisted. On what basis they would consider.
Thanks for the info.. GT Aloha is in neelankarai right? do they have any other branches near velachery or adayar?
all the best for your son.
Jaani, I am not sure on what basis they would consider waiting list candidates. I am just clueless like you.
Komes, Yes, you are right. GT Aloha is in Neelankari and they do not have any branches.
Thanks for your wish and wish you good luck for your daughter. Do keep me updated once you get the admission in your preferred school :-) (will do the same :-))
Thanks for your reply. I haven't gone to the school yet to find out the criteria of selection. Do they reveal how much marks our wards scored in entrance? any chance for us to see our ward's test paper / any justification from the school why the kid is rejected etc., (Komes, if you have any thoughts on my queries do post it).
i'm fine with Grove.only its infra sucks..my daughter got selected in Grove school.we are just waiting for even better schools.
i forget about NPS unnecessary tension.
me tried sishya,arsha vidhya mandir also but in vain.
if you can..pl name some cbse or icse schools from adayar to thiruvanmiyur kala?
Thanks for your wishes yaar.
