The Kendriya Vidyalaya Sangathan (KVS) has extended the admission process for Class 1 and other classes. The admission process for Class 1 was supposed to conclude on April 23, but now it has been extended beyond April 30. The admission process will be conducted when the situation becomes favorable.
“The declaration of Class 1 admission to be done after April 30 (instead of 23 April), depending on the situation”, KVS said in a notification.
It will release the admission lists and waiting lists for KVS Class 1 later. The admission dates have been deferred due to the unprecedented rise in Covid-19 cases.
KVS has also canceled the Class 9 entrance examination and has announced that the admissions will be done based on the ‘priority category’.
It said, “Class 9 admission to be done based on priority category. Admission test will not be conducted for admission in Class 9”.
The organization has also deferred the schedule to display the admission lists for Classes 2 to 9. The Deputy Commissioners (DC) have been asked to decide on the display of the admission lists depending on the exigencies of their respective states.
Earlier, KVS had allowed its teachers to conduct online classes from home because of the second wave of the Covid-19 pandemic.
