Suganya, Oh..Dont worry and you'll surely get in the third list which is yet to declared around 3rd week of feb. Did you meet the Princi or other higher official with the person who is refering you? But iam sure that you'll get thru..


WantLKG 2011-02-03 17:01:08


Congrats to all those who got the letter. I still didnt got the letter and have no reference too. I am still waiting....... I quoted 40K as donation.

1. Is it possible to meet Principal in person WITHOUT any reference?

2. Is that letter came by ordinary post or by courier?

3. How much donation amount did you people quote?


shankalz 2011-02-03 17:21:08



@ WantLKG : You'll definitely get the letter in 3rd list as you've quoted 40K. What i heard is they have 2 more list yet to be declared.

1) Not really sure whether we could meet the Princi without reference

2) Ordinary post

3) I quoted 50K. But Sowmiyaa quoted 35 and above. So you have plenty of chance.

@ Sowmiyaa :Did you also move thru' reference?

@ Adhithyan: How much did you quote?


sowmiyaa 2011-02-03 17:35:07


@wantLKG : Don't worry. I also came to know that one more list they'll provide. Have u tried any other cbse schools?

@Shankalz : I got throu' reference only yaar. (unofficialy paid to tat referee!!!!!). Cos no other way tat was my last option (CBSE ).

And still i've nt receive any call / letter frm one more CBSEschool i applied called Sherwood Hall, Chetpet, Interview started for many kids on last monday. (?!)


WantLKG 2011-02-03 17:57:35


Thank you very much for info.. I do not have any other option other than waiting.


sugsomsjai 2011-02-03 20:29:37

Congrats to Shankalz/sowmiya/adityan in getting seat in SBOA.

@shankalz: we got seat in sindhi model - kilpauk.

Hope all of you tried in SBOA happy now.

congrats to all Shankalz, Sowmiya and Adithyan for SBOA selection.

Also congrats lkgseat for Sindhi Model. Son of my friend is also studying in Sindhi Model. Heard he is doing good.

My son wil be ready for LKG next year. This morning only i saw this thread and been reading this only from that time.Since we are new to chennai, i dont much about the reference that the school accepts. Since we are new starting collecting admission information this year it self. Thank u so much for sharing all ur experiences.

One thing i understood from this that only parents have to change according to the school.Seeing ur comments i have removed Bhawans from my list now itself.

I will be much thankfull for u ppl if u help me by giving ideas in that and what kind of person references u have provided the school.


Thanks in advance.

Went to SBOA school at 11 AM today, gave a token and they called parents by that token number. Met princi, they gave a form and told to pay the fee. The fees has to be paid as DD only. 


BrillAdith 2011-02-04 15:12:21


Dear Adthiyan,

What is the fee structure in toto?. This is apart from donation, right.


sugsomsjai 2011-02-04 18:55:05


I dont know why i didnt get the call from SBOA till now? i went to school today. they were not letting me in. only with the call letter they will allow inside it seems.  i am really really words to explain...


sowmiyaa 2011-02-05 11:03:18


@sugsomsjai - How much did you quote. Don't worry, wait till next week.

were r u put ? Any other schools hv u tried?


shankalz 2011-02-06 18:47:15


lkgseat: Though we got the seat, i was not happy with the way it went. To begin my kids education, we were forced to give bribe in the name of donation or building fund. Since its for a gud cause, no other way except to digest it.

How much is the donation in Sindhi Model?


lkgseat 2011-02-07 17:01:06


@shankalz: They are collecting in the name of trust fund 25,000



sowmiyaa 2011-02-07 17:09:55


@lkgseat: Quite normal wen compare with other schools like SBOA, Maharishi etc., Wat abt fee structure?


lkgseat 2011-02-07 18:04:19


tricky in fees structure. They collected 10,000 (1st term) alone. 2nd and 3rd term yet to be paid. they may increase it as they wish.


sugsomsjai 2011-02-08 22:13:31


@sowmiyaa:  i quoted 25k first, but thru one of my friend's friend who is working in SBOA office, i changed to 50k..ten days back.  only after that they had put the second list.  i dont know why i didnt there any chance of third list/. i am in shenoy nagar.  my last option is the A school near krishna sweets, roundtana..


shankalz 2011-02-09 11:11:20


sugsomsjai : You'll definetely get the call letter as they have 2 more list yet to be declared. It is not like other schools who selects max of 200 kids/yr. I met a parent who had received letter in may month last year for her kids lkg and thats the reason i still have hope that get thru'


adhityan 2011-02-09 11:43:00


 sugsomsjai: as Shalkalz say you will surely get seat. they accomadate almost 800 students per year


sowmiyaa 2011-02-09 14:44:27


@shankalz : we were the third list yaar.

@sugsomsjai : One more list definitely they'll provide after 11th Feb'11, is the last date to pay fee & donation, whose selected in 3 rd list. - Keep your fingers crossed yaar. Don't worry.


lkgseat 2011-02-11 12:22:14


Wish you good luck to people still aiming for SBOA.

@shankalz and Sowmiyaa. Glad you got the admission. Hope you people very happy now.

The thread and discussions we had will surely help other parents who will seek admission for lkg in near future.

Good weekend to all.


sowmiyaa 2011-02-11 12:35:40


@lkgseat : Really true. Thank you very much & wishing  you the same for your kid.


shankalz 2011-02-11 14:24:19


@lkgseat: Yeah i feel quite relaxed after my kids admisssion.

Hope this thread will surely give an idea for the parents who will be trying for 2012 academic. As per the thread name, i got the seat in cbse school only by donation and influence.

@Sowmiyaa & Adithyan : Will keep discussing about the happenings @ SBOA as usual.

Wish you all a happy weekend and an advance Valentine day wishes.

Iam gonna enjoy with my 3.3yr old valentine


WantLKG 2011-02-14 15:06:25


Did anybody got the letter in the so called 3rd list? I totally lost hope now.


sugsomsjai 2011-02-18 11:26:26


@wantLKG:  what happend? did u get any letter from SBOA? i didnt get any letter till now...


hema76 2011-02-25 20:22:00


Hi iam new to this site and read all ur comments regarding the school admission process,

i am also ,the one among the  victim who had been disappointed  by pssbb nungambakkam .

i dont know in what basis they select the child for pre-kg, some known driver of that school said that pssbb is really keen in giving seats to brahmins and doctors and  the persons who are really in a very high post, also who have good fame .

actually we have all criteria of the school satisfied as mentioned we are within 5 km radius and child age is 2 years and 8 mnths and also (ofcourse some small level recommendations) , but even then ,

do u know one thing in the application form they have mention no recommendation, what is for that,?only god knows

we have been informed that there are more hight level recommendations where seats are given,this is said unofficialy by that driver .

but still i have hope for the next year but not in psbb, and telling my husband to get ready with any high join in d.a.v

after seeing all your difficulty  i am just slightly slipped in my hope ,of getting next year too in all other schools ,


lewis 2011-02-26 14:36:28


right said hema.

i attended PSBB KK nagar 4 interview 2 PSBB at OMR that is coming up at june this yr 4 LKG 4 my twins.

i feel their assesment in an eye wash too. dont know what they r looking 4 in a child. they said that d child should attend d assesment room alone. as d caretaker approached my children my kids started their chaostic attitude. thay were totally scared. having travelled all d way 4m tambaram 2 KK nagar my children felt that we'd leave them there n they clung 2 us crying inconsolably. although i was d first 2 get into d assesment room, my child went in only after an hr after being repeatedly consoled n pampered with goodies n treats d next day 2 which they agreed. phew!!!

i feel kids r not grown up enough 2 b with new people in a new environment without parents.

am waiting 4 d results thoug


shankalz 2011-02-28 17:56:41


@hema and lewis : As you guys said, its too hard to get seat in gud cbse schools now-a-days and i didnt knew before that we would face so much of difficulty for getting lkg seat. None of the school is transparent in their selection process. What i heard from reliable source is that, sboa had received letters from CM, Stalin and many other big shots for recommendation. Iam sure this would be the same case with all the named schools in chennai. So high level recommendation plays a vital to role to get lkg seat.

@lewis : As you've indicated, the interview which these schools conduct is just an eye wash. Really wasting everyones time..

@hema: Even i was very much interested to put my kid in DAV as it was our dream school. Inspite of standing the whole night to get appln form, submitted the form in heavy rain, shifted our house within 1km radius & arranged all the necessary documents an year back, we could nt able to place our kid there. Ofcourse we moved through small level recommedation as well. Really wonder what would be the reason for rejecting us.

Anywez be prepared for everything and all the very best to you both.
