@sunt I believe salary component is to sort applications in terms of quota. The overall selection process is lottery based. Of course, recommendations do work.
Let me elaborate:
I collected the application form in the first week of Feb., my application serial number was just above 1K which includes PP2 and higher classes applications as well. Anyway this gives us an indication on the number of applications HPS might have received by Feb 28.
If you see the no. of candidates selected for PP1, it is 120 (60 GEN, 60 BC) and now add some 30 seats as other categories, the total is at least 150 seats for current PP1.
I remember reading that Class 1 strength is around 240-250. So basically 250-150 (promoted students) leaves 100 seats for lottery.
Assuming 3000 applications for class 1, and considering no recommendation, then its, 1 seat per 30 applications.
It€™s a long shot and understandably, school would not send SMS to the non-selected candidates.
@9917 €""I want to apply next year as well and get a clarity if I really need to do or look for options€
Refer this article. I think a MLA recommendation will do. It seems MLA/MP has some family quota, when unused can be give to the recommended candidate.
@Divya02 €" True, there is nothing we can do.
@124567 - WHat are the other schools you are conisdering...
Well all major schools have closed admission process.
If you live somewhere near ECIL, then Requelford International School is an OK option. I might approach it as well. I am pleased with the facilities there. Fees is same as DPS. They provide CBSE and Cambridge affiliation. We have neighbors who€™s two kids go the school, I am impressed with their communication skill.
1. Candidates per class are less, because of remote location. Hence admissions are still open.
2. They do not pressurize kids on studies. Not sure it is a good thing.
On a lighter note, they have VVS Laxman academy for Cricket and Gopichand for badminton.
To summarize: It€™s a growing school, can go either side. Can€™t see the future.
