Good Shepherd International School Admission Procedure and Admission Fee:-
Admission Procedure for classes II to IX:
As a part of our long term planning, expansion and infrastructure development, we propose to have the following classes only with effect from:
2010 – 2011 -
Std II to Std XII
2011 – 2012 -
Std III to Std XII
2012 – 2013 -
Std IV to Std XII
From the year 2012 onwards Good Shepherd International School will have classes only from Std IV to Std XII. This is to provide extra facilities to the students and to have all the students of the school on one campus.
All students will have to appear for an Aptitude Test in English, Mathematics (and Science for Grade VIII and IX) and Second language to qualify for admission. As a matter of policy we do not admit students in Grade X and XII. The Aptitude Test will be held in the school on any day convenient between March and June every year.
Admission will be confirmed only after assessing the performance of the child in the Aptitude Test and a personal interview with the respective Coordinators of the Class. On confirmation of admission, parents will be required to submit a Conduct Certificate from the existing school along with a Recommendation letter.
The question papers will be based on the general syllabi, not on the current textbooks. Kindly note that the child should be at least 7 years, for admission in Std II.
We do admit children during the middle of the academic year in the same class in which the child is studying in the previous school.
For International candidates / NRIs:
For prospective students from abroad, the Aptitude Test can be scheduled in the school (or in the Indian Embassy) where the student is studying provided the parents get a no objection certificate from the Head of the school / Embassy (and let us know the email address for us to send the question papers). The details will be sent to parents individually along with our call letter on receipt of registration form and fee from the parents.
For Class: XI
For admission in Class XI, parents are required to visit the school with the candidate for a personal interview and an Aptitude Test in English. The academic reports of classes VIII, IX and X along with a Character Certificate from the last school are mandatory for admission. Kindly note that admission for Grade XI and the choice of subjects / stream will be considered purely based on the results of the board exams and the stream taken.
It is very important that both parents of the student should visit the school for signing the documents and also ascertain the facilities offered by the school. Please note that the school does not encourage nomination of guardian for our students. Only non-resident Indian and foreign parents of students are permitted to specify one guardian for their children. Only parents (or authorized guardian in case of non-resident Indian and foreign students) whose name is entered in the school records at the time of admission, will be permitted to take the students out for mid-term break / vacation / outing etc. Parents of other students, family friends and local people cannot be considered as guardians.
