Admission Process

Enquiry

Orientation

(Pre Primary November 11, 2017,
Primary: December 09, 2017, Middle & High School: November 11, 2017)
Parents will be invited to attend the orientation with prior appointment after receiving the enquiry form. The orientation, around 2.5 hours, will give them a clear insight about the school, the philosophy and curriculum.

Sale of Admission Kit

Post orientation parents have to buy the admission kit after their meeting with the Advancement Officer.

Submission of Forms

(For Pre Primary: November 28 to December 01, 2017, For Primary: December 20 to 23, 2017, For Middle & High School: 17 to 22 November 2017)
Parents need to fill in the admission form and submit relevant documents and make an appointment for Interaction. (Note: Our admission policy requires parents to declare if their child or children have any special learning needs.)

Interactions

Pre Primary (December 14 to 21, 2017), Primary (January 15 to 19, 2018), Middle School & High School (December 5 to 7, 2017)
Both parents have to attend the Interaction, with their child/ children, with prior appointment. We believe that every child is unique and has his own individuality. This is why our admission process focuses mainly on the interaction session with student and parents.

Meeting with the Principal

A brief meeting with the Principal is arranged to confirm the admission and welcome the child and parents to the NIS family.

Admission Confirmation

February 15, 2018 latest
The admission is confirmed and parents need to pay fees to complete the admission formalities. A formal intimation of admission confirmation is sent within a week of payment of fees.

Interaction Process

For Pre Primary School (Grade Nursery to Senior KG) – There are no entrance exams only interaction with parents.

For Primary School (Grade 1 to 5) – There are no entrance exams only interaction with parents and child. Though, the student’s prior knowledge is assessed through a session with the HOD.

For Cambridge Secondary 1(Grade 6 to 8) – The student will have a written assessment of 1.5 hours comprising of English, Mathematics and Science. The student will also have to complete a self-assessment paper of half an hour. There is no fixed syllabus for any of these written assessments. They are based on the student’s prior knowledge. The topics related to the assessment will be informed a week prior.

For Cambridge Secondary 2 (Grade 9 and 10) – The students must secure 60% in the entrance test done at NIS and also submit the following

  1. An application for their candidature and explain in brief their extracurricular and community service activity.
  2. A letter of recommendation from two teachers of the last school.
  3. Students will have to participate in an Orientation Interview.

Note: The school has decided to admit students from varied curricula. The assessment will act as a tool to help the school to learn and understand the student’s ability onwards Language, Reasoning, Logical, Analytical and Application aspects.

This will also enable us to design effective strategies to plan the schedule and guide students to target the competencies and skills they seek effectively. So the exam conducted at the time of admission is not a deciding factor for admission but a tool to understand better the student requirements.  This will also help the school to better prepare the students for the IGCSE requirements.
