DPS Noida admission process for nursery class started very early this year. The online admission forms got open on 21 June till 30 June 2017 but later it got extended till 24 July 2017.
Anyways on 8 July I came to know that their admission forms are 0pen. we filled the online form after submitting the form online a login id and password was issued to us, which we had to use to check the status of our online form.
The first list of the short listed candidates were suppose to come on 28july but it got delayed due to some technical reasons and on 3 august2017 they updated it and we had to login id and password to check status.
Around 10:30pm I checked my status and found that we were selected for interaction on 17 Aug 2017 at 8:30am. Their interaction process started from 9 Aug. 2017 and continued for approx. 15 days every day they called somewhere around 30-35 parents per day.
Many parents who were called on 9- 10 Aug. for interaction their result came by 12 aug'17. This made us very apprehensive at that moment.
On 17 aug17 at 8:15am we reached school gate. it was clearly mentioned that gates will open for the parents only at the allotted time. That day there were somewhere around25 parents n kids for interaction.
We were taken to a hall which had 2 desks n two covered rooms. At the 1st desk we had to deposit 1500 Rs collect prospectus, stick photos and sign on the form printout provided by school, attach birth certificate and address proof. we again had to submit this form to the other desk where we got a questionnaire which had a few questions like
- Spare the rod spoil the child comment?
- how can u inculcate social skills in your child?
- why DPS for your child?
while we were filling the questionnaire my kid name was called for interview. Firstly he had to go alone for five minutes then after that one of the parent had to join.
When he was alone he was asked to do colouring n jumping this is what my kid told me then when I joined him, I saw there were 5 -6 desks n one teacher was interacting with one kid. my kid was asked to put beads in the thread one by one, then she showed a picture to him which had sky land and water then some item were shown like helicopter, ship duck clouds car rainbow tree horse teacher asked him what is it and where will it go, there was a 4 piece puzzle of lion, showed him different fruits and vegetables like potatoes, eggplant, lady finger banana grapes and apple and asked him what is it and where will it go in fruit basket or vegetable basket, pattern matching ( 2 pink, 2 yellow) asked him arrange in a similar way, showed him a sheet which had pic of 6 items like mango burger fan etc. asked him what is it and then turned the sheet had asked him to recall the items which he just saw in the sheet, he was asked to recite a poem also then we were asked to go and wait outside.
We were then taken to another hall where we were shown DPS history and then jungle book movie.
We passed an hour watching the movie then we had an interaction with principal and a teacher where 5 parents were called with their kids in a room and were seated in round table and one by one we had to introduce ourselves. That’s it we were then told that results will be out on 23 Aug. 2017 we had to check our status. on 23 Aug. 2017 afternoon we were glad to see that our kid was selected for Admission and we had to pay a draft of 1 Lac on 25 Aug. '17.
