Hey all

Wishing all the parents who still seek admission for 2011-12.

Hope all the discussion here will help you people to get an idea in getting seat in good CBSE schools. It really difficult nowadays. So don't be so disappointed.

Best of luck.

thanks lkgseat. this discussion has been really helpful in deciding.


my children got admitted in PSBB-Siruseri branch. i applied in 3 schools n got selected in all the schools where my children gave an interview. but sadly i wanted 2 put them in PSBB which was nearest 2 my house that is coming up in another 2 yrs but was waiting 4 PSBB results. so i had 2 let go of the other 2 schools when they gave me a time limit 2 pay d fees. 

PSBB results came d last n i was releived 2 find my children' name in d letter 4m them.

adhityan 2011-05-09 22:11:45


 When it come to metric, Velammal is good. They produce some good nos of state ranks. Only if it is CBSC, then SBOA possess more value.

LKG - Bhavan's - shell out 2.5 lac

LKG - Chinmaya Vidyayala, Kilpauk - 2 lac

LKG - Chinmaya Vidyalaya, Anna Nagar - 1.5 lac

I got this info thru one of my friend

I heard that CV and Bhavan's already started pre-admission(unofficial). admissions are going on for those who can shell out lacs to get LKG seat

Kolaperumal is not in the best school list, but still they also:

Charge some 45,000 during admission (25K school fund, 15K admission fee etc) + Plus they charge you 4 terms (instead of the 3 terms in other schools)



dreemzgirl 2012-06-27 14:23:41


@Csatz: Can you please throw some more light on how good is Kolaperumal interms of coaching and extra curricular activities? I am very much interested in admitting my daughter to this school.

@lkgseat  : Hi i am a alumini of Sindi Model. I passed out in 2000. Now I am looking to admit my daughter to one of the schools around kilpauk. Can you suggest how good is Sindhi Model now interms of extra curricular activities? Acedemically thery are good. I know the teachers well but have my doubts about the other activities. Please throw some light.


dreemzgirl 2012-06-27 15:23:50


@shankalz : Can you let me know how is your kid doing at SBOA? I am looking to admit my daughter to one of the schools around Annanagar. SBOA was not my first choice due to the strength but now after going through all your discussions, I think I should be prepared for anything to happen :(

Do they encourage for co curricular activities? Can you give any inputs from parents of higher classes? Thanks


Thaiyal 2013-02-19 13:07:33


Hello SBOA parents,

Please do share your review about SBOA.

@shankalz : Since you admitted your kid in SBOA, pls do share ur review which will be helpful for us. We are also sailing in the same boat and SBOA results are yet to be published for this year.

hi all,

 I am, From Pune. I am relocating with my family to Chennai in March-2013. In Chennai I would be working at  ( Near Chennai Trade Centre ).  I am looking for some good cbse schools near Chennai Trade Center, Nandambakkam ( may be 10-12 km distance from here ). I am also OK with average cbse schools. because I know getting admission into to 5/10 cbse schools would not be possible at all.  I have two sons ( Lakshay & Vansh ).  - Lakshay is 8 year old ( 13/March/2005) & currently studying in Class 2.  - Vansh Is 4 Year Old ( 31/Jan/2009) & Currently studying in Class Nursery.  I am seeking admission to both of my sons for next session (2013-2014)…… Class 3 & Class LKG.   Anticipating a positive reply,

This donation disease is widespread even in ICSE/ ISC Schools they ask for donations like in Chettinad Hari Shree they asked 2.5 lakh non refundable. In Sishya nothing is transparent for those who registered at time of pregnancy/ birth of child or those who take appointment by thier site which says admission are still open.
