 Hello Friends,

I called up in St Mary's school after a long wait on last thursday. I got a reply that the Interview process is already done. The interviews were held on 25th & 26th of March 2013. And for this process mails were sent to parents on 23rd of March 2013. They said that the one who has not received any mail are not shortlisted for interview process. 

I was shocked with the response because they know that many parents are waiting for the process and they have not even felt that they should update it on their website or communicate to everyone even if not selected. If we are communicated that atleast we will not wait for it and will go for any other school.

The interview process was completed but ZP(Zila Parishad) has ordered to stop the process because of some legal concerns raised. The link for the same is below:

I dont know whether we can do anything for the way they have conduted the interview process without updating the same on their website.

Thanks for the update... We did go for the interview but its over 2 weeks and we still have no communication from there end as to what is goining on.

My personal experience says St Marys admission process is a Mystery in itself. They dont ask anything to the child and all the parent's degrees etc that they ask are never looked into. We were shortlisted last year but not confirmed. But I know people who were not even shortlisted got calls in June/July and offered admission without even an interview. It is certainly not TRANSPARENT.

 Oh god ..whats going on ..with the Admission Process. We have been waiting on for so very long !!! The parents in this thread are saying that the interview process is already done ... I  called up Saint Marys today afternoon .to confirm ... and to my surprise somebody replied saying that the Admission process is still not done ... "Please check the website and your mail !!!!"..... Can this be more confusing !!!

It is a sad n sorry state for all parents who wish to put their kids in good n reputed schools. I have been following this thread n the one started by the hutchings parents. Thanks to all for updating n letting others know what is happening. Last I heard was that whatever interviews were conducted stan cancelled n there will be fresh admissions by way of a random lottery. Haven't heard from the'horse's mouth' though. If someone could confirm this...would be gr8.


Shiv07 2013-04-13 22:41:28


Hi Geet....u mentioned u went for the pre nursery interview...any idea about the nursery interviews n if u could share ur experience with other parents vis a vis what questions they asked, etc. If u don't mind me asking, what do u feel is the criteria for selection....are u working? Thanks would really appreciate it.


Shiv07 2013-04-13 22:46:01


Hi what did u do? did u apply again this year or try in another school for ur daughter? I agree with u....the admission procedure is a big mystery. Why don't they have a transparent procedure? It's a total disappointment when ur kid doesn't get admission in the school u wish.


Shiv07 2013-04-13 22:49:14


I would really like to appreciate the constant updates posted by AjaySarda n Puneetgr8. I know ur kids have got admissions in Hutchings but u still provide valid info for other parents.....Thank You.


AdM 2013-04-14 16:04:20

The school has mentioned that it has received "Certification as a Minority Educational Institution from the State government."



Shiv07 2013-04-14 18:28:27


Thanks AdM for updating us on this.....but what next. Since they already have conducted interviews on 25th/26th March, will they only get the confirmation????? What about others?? Or will they start afresh??? Too many qs n doubts n no one from the school responds nicely.  For which class have you applied? Anybody who hasn't got any call even for the interview....pls share ur experience. I would like to know whether these interviews conducted were for pre-nursery, nursery, Std.1 n Prep boys???? Please update us about the same...thanks!!!


AdM 2013-04-14 19:25:48


 Hi Shiv07 ...even I have similar doubts ... I belieive the interviews for Pre-nur , Nurs , Std. 1 & Prep ...have been done ... and they just have to declare the final results .....they are just waiting for the stay order to be lifted ......!!!

I had applied for Pre - nursery ... but didn't get the interview call ... but a lot of ppl in this community have got calls .... some of them didn't go for the interviews as well ... read on the "Hutching School Thread 

Others"people on the group ..plz ... share !!



Shiv07 2013-04-14 19:48:25


Hi AdM....I don't think its possible to conduct so many interviews in just 2 days!!!! Usually for each class the interviews are conducted over a period of 3 its impossible to have completed the interviews. Anyway, if u remember the stay was put again on the 26th March....the news came in the Indian Express on 27th.

I hope some other parents share their experience....anybody who got interview calls for nursery/std1/prep boys????

Lets' keep this thread alive till everything is cleared....atleast the school updated the website!!!!!


geetparas 2013-04-15 09:35:51


did try calling them know one responded ...


AdM 2013-04-15 11:21:49


 Hi Geet . the SMS school results are ..coming out 2day may be they didn't pick up the call ... !!!!

Hey Shiv07 ..the interviews ..for Std 1 girls ... and Prep boys ..were held much earlier ... I guess in the month of Dec ..!!!

Interviews ..for Pre - nurs ...was done .. on 25th & 26th .. Nt sure abt the Nursery interviews .. if tht has happened ...!!

Moreover ..going thru ..their website ..its pretty obvious ... tht ...only the final results are to be declared "we are unable to declare the results at this moment".... !!!!




RAnish 2013-04-15 14:19:18


Yes...even nursery interviews are over  .... we got a call on 25th .... waiting for the results....


Shiv07 2013-04-15 14:50:02


That's unfair bcoz even after the stay they conducted interviews n didn't even update their website in the interim period. What happens to all the parents who waited for so long n haven't applied elsewhere in the hope of getting in SMS. RAnish have u applied elsewhere???? How many parents were called for the interviews. And AdM as far as I know.....even prep boys n std.1 girls were on hold......anybody knows if anyone from these classes got a call for interviews????


RAnish 2013-04-15 14:55:21


My kid got thru Bishops and Arnolds also ... we paid the bishops admission fees ... but now even bishops process is on hold ...

Regarding SMS interivew, i think they had given diffrent time slots over the day ... when we went , some 5 to 6 more parents were waiting  .....


Shiv07 2013-04-15 15:05:17


RAnish I don't think Bishop's Undri or Kalyani nagar come under the ZP stay. It's only Bishop's camp. There r a couple of other parents on the Hutchings thread who have got admission in Bishop's undri n have paid the fees for the same. Hope everything gets sorted out for of luck!!!


AdM 2013-04-15 15:17:07


 Hey Shiv07 ... have u applied ..for ur kid elsewhere .. ??

I was also ..waiting for a very long time ..for SMS interview to happen... but now ..after reading all this on this thread  ... I have got my kid admitted in "Nursery" some other school.

RAnish ..all the best ... Bishop's Klyng ..shld nt be a prblm :) ... Couple of kids in my society has also got thru ..Bishop's Klyngr this year !!




RAnish 2013-04-15 15:33:02


@ Shiv07 , @ ADM : Thanks

We were to pay the first term fees in Bishops last week ..but they did not take the fees and said we would intimate a new date when all the ZP issue is resolved ...

I am waiting for SMS results ... even though it is far from my house as compared to Bishops, i feel its better in all aspects when compared to Bishops ....
