With regard to the board, I'm wondering why parents are so focused on syllabus and board. Not all the kids joining in CBSE/ICSE is going to clear NEET/IIT-JEE. Every syllabus in India is derived from NCERT. Focus on holistic approach to your kids - extracurricular activities and do not focus on academics alone. Kids should enjoy the school they shouldnt feel burdened. Our mentality is that samacheer syllabus is not competitive with the other syllabus. It's not true, maybe the teaching approach is different in CBSE and Matric/Anglo Indian.

I agree with this point. In Patrick's, they made the kids to play together and assessed each and every kid for half an hour. My kid did not even make eye contact with the principal because he was new to them. But receiving chocolate from the father he answered the questions. One kid was crying badly and the dad was not encouraging the kid to go to the assessment room. He was carrying the kid and consoling the kid. The staff requested them to leave the interview because they analysed the psychology of the parents. What they expected was the encouragement and motivation from the parents rather than answering the questions

We are catholic christians and my elder daughter is studying in St.Michael's only. My son was not in a good mood and he answered only few questions and he got rejected in the interview. Could you pls suggest how to move our application further.

@Arokini and @p2811 I totally agree on your point. Since they get large number of applications than its capacity and being a reputed one they should have better assessment process. I was lucky on that day, my kid was in good mood to listen and respond to teacher accordingly. But as l mentioned before it was disappointing how they have interacted with parents.

@Arokini Whether SMA admit kids for Grade 2 also will they ask for donations?

From grade 1 it is contribution. But Seats are very rare . If any kid leaves the school, then that seat will be open.
