I am currently in USA and want to return to Kolkata this year or the beginning of the next. My daughter is 4 and a half year and I am looking for good school to get her admitted in. But it seems there are two admission sessions and some schools are even giving admission forms this year for the 2013-2014 academic session. Is there a test for admission in Ukg. can you give me any idea as what are they expected to know. It would be great if someone would give me some idea about what are the best schools for girls or coed in Kolkata now-a-days.
I too am a mother of a 4year old girl and planning to return to kolkata next year.I have been also frantically looking for some information regarding school admission process.I think most of the schools will conduct a test,if not written then atleast verbal to judge the student.
There are traditional schools with goodwill associated with them like Loreto Convent, etc and there are new generation schools like DPS, etc. Most of the good schools here are ICSE schools though a few cbse schools are also there. Schools have already started giving forms for lkg admission. Depending upon in which area you are, you can choose out of the nearby schools. All the schools conduct tests though they name it 'interaction'. However, it is easier to get admission in new gen schools due to fee structure and initial donation money involved therein. If you are looking for international schools, the options are Calcutta International, Pailan, Heritage, etc. New gen schools are three DPS Schools, Apeejay, Radcliffe, Schools of Birla like MHS, Mahadevi Birla, Asoka Hall, etc and old and very famous and sought after schools like Don Bosco, Le martinere for boys and girls separately, Loreto Convent , etc. Keep your child in happy mood on the day of exam and atleast one of these schools will definitely take admission. Good Luck.
