Admission Tips

Obtaining school admission in Bangalore can be an intimidating prospect considering the fact that everyone wants to put their children into the very best schools that have only a limited number of seats to offer. If you are also looking at scholarship for school in order to make your child's education more affordable, you also have to ensure that you are able to complete all the necessary formalities.


Let's look at the necessary things we need to handle in order to ease the process of obtaining school admission in Bangalore-


1. Location

Though Bangalore is a city most people would love to settle in, it does have its fair share of traffic related problems. This makes the location of the school that you choose for your child extremely important. You should not look at a school which requires a fair amount of travel time both ways. That will only end up putting extra strain on your child, which will reflect in his or her performance at school.


2. Admission Form Link to Obtain School Admission in Bangalore

These are digital times and school admissions too involve the use of digital technology by enabling one to initiate the admission process online. For this one needs to access the admission form, usually available on the website of the school in question, to download the admission form for filling up and submission. The fact that this process is online saves time and is therefore quite hassle free. This smoothens out the initial process of applying for school admission in Bangalore as one can initiate admission proceedings at a number of schools from the comfort of one's home.


3. Find Out The Eligibility Criteria for Securing School Admission in Bangalore

It is extremely important that one find out the eligibility criteria for admission in the top schools in Bangalore before going ahead with the application process. Only after one has determined that one's child is fully eligible to apply for admission, should one apply. Eligibility could be based on factors like the age of the child in question, marks obtained in the previous class or the ability to clear the interview or written test of the school.


4. Facilities and Infrastructure

The kind of facilities and infrastructure a school provides should be a determining factor in shortlisting a school for admission. Education these days is as much about holistic growth and development, as it is about mere academic performance. Things like the kind of classrooms, computer labs, canteens, auditoriums, playgrounds, sports facilities and of course, the teaching staff that a school provides are all important in the choice of a school for one's child. The kind of atmosphere and ambiance a child receives on his or her educational journey, has a profound impact on how they turn out. 


5. Curriculum

The curriculum that a school offers to its students is a critical factor in the choice of a school. The ones that offer leading national curricula like CBSE and IGCSE curriculum are generally preferred over state boards, on account of the perceived greater value of the former in securing the future of a child. Additionally some parents might also want the school in question to offer international programs like International Baccalaureate.


6. Safety and Security

The safety and security of the children is something that can never be taken lightly. Schools that have the right kind of security personnel and surveillance equipment  and observe the highest standards of vetting with regard to the personnel they deploy are the ones that a parent would prefer their child to go to. It is therefore important that one looks at this aspect carefully, before deciding to put one's child in a particular school.


7. Scholarship for School

Quite a few schools offer quite generous scholarship programs for students that excel in studies or sports. The scholarship might offer to cover the complete or partial expenses of the meritorious students. In the case of the meritorious sports people this would also include providing mentorship to the student in question. 

However, it is important that one applies for the scholarship well in time after having complied with all the eligibility criteria. This is on account of the fact that there may be limited seats available and selection might occur on a first come, first serve purpose.

While obtaining admission in a major metropolis like Bangalore may be a little challenging, a little bit of advance planning could make the process considerably smoother. The factors described above are the most important ones with regard to the process and as long as one has taken care of these the admission process will go very smoothly indeed.

All you need to do is take care of all the items on the check list one by one and you should be ready to go. Bangalore is really quite well endowed with some of the best schools in the country and there is no reason why your child should not obtain admission in one of those.
