When compared to velachery DaV, application given in adambakam DAV late & they announced results very fast..why such a delay velachery DAV to announce results.that too sms will be sent to selected candidates. Do they do lot selection.? People make such effort to arrange all documents as required by school. But still they for llot selection. If anyone has idea of selection process.? When they will announce results. Please share your views.DAV velachery is a good choice of selection.??


sandy77 2015-03-03 12:10:20


True, DAV Adambakkam is over, hope they ll start this week for velachery.Yes, sms is the only initimation they do, they dont even answer/reply if we complain or ask the reasons if we dint get :(


Puzzled 2015-03-03 13:06:59


All schools are like that. I don't think any school would entertain you if you need to know the reason for rejection.
Also there is nothing you are going to do with it anyway, if you are not through, just forget it and move on!!!

Lets Hope for the best..!!

In DAV Velachery for Pre-kg admission: Any idea how many of them applied..??, how many sections allotted for Pre-Kg..??

Last year they asked to pay application fee Rs.500, This year no application fee, we need to download and fill the form.
Now we are in 2015, still follow the old process & systems

I have applied in Arsha vidya mandir (LKG), didn't get selected (Very systematic in process). After applying got mail and said date given feedback as regret.

Any other schools options left in velachery especially CBSE or ICSE..?? or in & around velachery..?? please through some views

sandy77 2015-03-03 17:44:20


Few i had in my mind are Pon vidyashramam, they say its still open and we need to pay and get the confirmation/no other process, but i m really not sure of the quality and school.Other one is Srujana montessori, St johns which are also not top in my mind. hence waiting.

antoleema 2015-03-03 20:52:31


did the school officials inform the results would be send via sms  ,pls confirm  

prabhuraman 2015-03-04 00:06:22



When I called them last week & asked,regarding shortlisted candidate s they confirmed, we will intimate via sms, if your child got selected. And hope so they will declare only by 2nd week of Mar'15 as per the schedule.


sandy77 2015-03-04 11:22:03


Yes, they only send sms, they follow the same way back from few years.

Puzzled 2015-03-04 11:34:26


The SMS system started 2 years ago. This is the 3rd year. The SMS is sent to the selected students only. It is sent to the father's mobile number. This is how it was in the last 2 years. Generally 1st the general quota gets the SMS and then the sibling quota gets. That's the procedure they have been following in the last 2 years. Please ensure the father's mobile is fully charged and functioning. No point complaining later. :)


abimey 2015-03-04 12:37:12


@ Puzzled : Will all general quota students selected get message on the same day? or will there be a delay in that also?
Any idea how was the case last year??? Because this year they didn't give a specific date for announcing result..they have mentioned as 2 week of march 2015.

prabhuraman 2015-03-04 13:14:40



Thanks for the info..lets wait for positive response from the school, next week.


prabhuraman 2015-03-04 13:21:47



One more doubt i have, after shortlisting they will call for interview (Child & Parents)..??, based on interview performance selected candidates will be announced..?? or whoever get SMS consider as selected candidates..?

Other school process (like PSBB, Maharishi, DAV Adabakkam): Submitting Filled application in school-->Criteria matches --> call for interview--> Announce Shortlisted candidates.

Please share your views, how they did few years back..?


Puzzled 2015-03-04 13:33:49


@abimey : last 2 years - 1st day general quota gets sms. 2nd day sibling quota.
No fixed date. You can expect it any time around the week they have mentioned.
@prabhuraman - Once you get an sms, you'd be asked to come for an interaction (child + both parents) along with all original documents and fees (DDs). They do interact with child & parents, but this is not an elimination round. Everyone who gets an sms is selected. Unless there is some glaring mistake in the docs submitted or any other major issue, in general all those who get "selected" sms get admission.


sandy77 2015-03-04 13:45:51


I am little worried due to 2 points as i fall in 3-5km category and i somehow forgot to give the blood report as it was not listed in the application form.
So no chance right ???

Puzzled 2015-03-04 13:51:05


2 years ago people from Nanganallur (> 3KM) got admission. So there is a chance (but its just a chance).
I guess this time there was some confusion, since the website doc required showed diff things & form showed diff. I guess they will give benefit of doubt. So I believe you still stand a chance. :)
But cross your fingers & hope for the best!
All the best.


prabhuraman 2015-03-04 14:39:51



Thanks for sharing..!!

Your kid is studying in same school..?? How about school coaching..??, Teachers interaction to students..???
Any rough idea regarding fees structure.. lets hope for the best...


sandy77 2015-03-04 14:51:32


Thanks a lot Puzzled. Your reply gives some confidence :) 
Hoping for best...


Puzzled 2015-03-04 14:54:40


Coaching is okay. There is not much pressure, but there is lot of HW & syllabus. HW starts from lkg only. There are lot of class competitions, annual day, class assemblies etc. Most of these are optional, but worth participating. If we don't participate in these, we also don't have the right to complain that the school focuses on academics only!
However, parents have to help out the kid with the HW as well as other activities. But it is still worth it.
Teachers are okay. They are polite/kind with the kids but stern as well. All the kids love their class teachers. :)
There is no ground/play area for the Vatika premises. That is the only drawback.
Fees is generally around 50-60K (for Pre Kg). From lkg its 20K. Very nominal when you compare it to other money-spinning schools that claim to provide holistic development!


Puzzled 2015-03-04 14:58:50


And of course, all the money is paid in cheque/DD & they give a receipt as well. No cash involved. That's one rare thing compared to most of the other schools.

abimey 2015-03-04 15:00:44


@ Puzzled: Thanks for the info!!!
U mean LKG fee is  20k for the complete year???

Jeni08 2015-03-04 15:27:13


Hello Parents, Kindly let me know if you had applied for DAV velachery also... If yes, they r publishing the results next week only. Whereas the DAV adhambakkam school is compelling the parents to pay the fees by tomorrow (I feel parents are cornered by DAV adhambakkam school as it wants to complete the admission process before its competitor school DAV Velachery). Please let me know which school to opt...

Jeni08 2015-03-04 15:28:47


If you parents, have done some analysis, pls compare both DAV Velachery & DAV Adhambakkam & let me know the pros and cons...

Puzzled 2015-03-04 15:42:04


@abimey - Yes 20K for the whole year (8K+6K+6k)

abimey 2015-03-04 15:53:37


@ Puzzled: Thanks for the info :)

Hi. I am new to this forum, My daughter dob is 29 Dec 2012. As of 31st may 2012 she will be 2.5 years 2 days. Will they consider our application? Anyone have experience in this? Other points Residence distance is 3-5 km category. Did not attach blood group certificate because it is not mentioned in the application form. We got seat in DAV adambakkam but we did not show off for admission. Any other suggestions will be appreciated....... Thanks
