There is nothing to prepare as such. One standard question would be why Isha home school and this one question is enough.
Thank you for your response. They have asked to bring pencil, pen and pages at the time of orientation. What exactly they ask to children. Could you please elaborate. Thank you.
They would give few mathematical problems they will check Childs on their knowledge and they will ask them to write on some topic.
Mathematical questions they ask are according to Indian syllabus? My daughter is in Canada and their study standards are very different from Indian standard. If you can PM me what kind of question they give in Maths.
@Vineet78 - did you get dates for parent orientation?
Not yet as my daughter's orientation has not been done yet.
So what exactly they asked your child in orientation? Could you please tell so my daughter can prepare herself accordingly. Thank you
Hi Vineet, the school asks very basic English and Maths questions appropriate for the child's age, it doesn't matter which syllabus the child is studying in. The child is not assessed based on just English and maths, but various aspects are considered. It's very difficult to tell on what basis they select the children, they spend few hours with the children and assess their entire personality. I would say let the child be her natural self, no prepration required.
@vineet78 - the interaction was very casual. For my kid, the questions were on his activities, I guess it depends on how the conversation starts. As @nivedita rightly mention, let child be natural herself to get the best out of her.
Thank you @Nivedita for clear and precise answer. I was also thinking the same about IHS that if they select children only on the basis of their academic then what is the difference between them and other schools.
Thank you @Raji for giving more calirty!
I will update here how the orientation went for my daughter.
My Child Orientation for 8th STD has been done on 26-12-2021 and waiting for result, normally how long will it take to get feedback from IHS.
Same here, my daughter's orientation was also done on same day.
All the best for your child.
We had received the results in second week of February
Is it after Parents orientation or before?
All the best for your child also, if you get any update from IHS let me know. My WhatsApp no:+91-9742723000
Anyone here who is a not an Indian citizen and applying from overseas?
Yes this applies to us.
I will keep you posted.
Hi Vineet would really appreciate if you could contact me on email@example.com. I would like to apply for my daughter in future as well. Thanks
What the time frame between your child's interview and Parents orientation? My daughter was appeared on 26th Dec for orientation and one on one interview but we haven't heard anything yet.
Also wondering when do they make final decision whether to give seat or not? Is it after Parent's orientation?
We had parent orientation and child interaction/assessment on the same day in the second half of November, we heard back from the school in the second week of Feb. They make the decision after the orientation with both parents and the child.
@Nivedita Thank you so much for the information.
We haven't heard anything from them about Parent's orientation yet.
@krishnamurthy - We Also have parent orientation on Jan 8th 2022.
All the best to you and your child.
